Pioneering self-care ‘smart watch’ showcased at MEDICA 2016

A pioneering health ‘smart watch’ that allows people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to self-manage their care plans from home will be showcased at MEDICA 2016.

Developed by UK based, Aseptika Limited (Activ8rlives), and Renfrew Group International (RGi), BuddyWOTCH monitors the health of patients by monitoring fitness, oxygen levels in the blood, temperature and heart rate.

The pioneering technology can detect and warn the wearer of a COPD ‘flare-up’ so they can access treatments quicker whilst enjoying better quality and more sustainable models of care.

BuddyWOTCH also allows carers and healthcare teams to manage and report the success of self-care plans allowing the wearer to remain independently at home for longer.

It has been designed to be wearable, comfortable, ergonomic, attractive and suitable for use with minimal training to also cater for older users.
