WAYNE, Pa., Feb. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — HandsFree Health™, provider of WellBe®, a secure, HIPAA compliant, voice-enabled virtual health assistant platform, today announced the integration of the WellBe voice assistant into its Emergency Alert Smartwatch. Users can now access the comprehensive suite of health services WellBe provides by using voice to “ask WellBe” – creating a new category in the Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) industry. This innovative functionality allows their smartwatch users to utilize WellBe’s health features out of their homes and on-the-go, offering the security and comfort of asking WellBe a question anywhere. Combined with a built-in heart rate monitor, pedometer, and GPS, WellBe Emergency Alert Smartwatch now offers the first complete health and wellness wearable equipped with 4G connectivity and 24/7 emergency monitoring.
“We always knew we wanted to make WellBe accessible in more locations than just the home,” said Mike Cardillo, CEO, HandsFree Health. “We believe that adding a virtual health assistant like WellBe to smartwatches will completely transform what customers expect in mobile PERS technology.”
Enabled by HandsFree Health’s on-device microphone, WellBe is available at the press of a button. WellBe can answer health questions from one of the world’s largest health databases, record your blood pressure, help you find a local pharmacy or remind you to take your medications. WellBe also helps with everyday tasks like locating a restaurant, checking the local weather, reading the news, and controlling your smart home and health devices with just your voice.
“Today’s seniors are more active than ever but still desire the protection and security of a monitored emergency service that is also stylish for everyday use,” said Dan Messina, President, HandsFree Health. “WellBe smartwatch now offers a solution for those active lifestyles with the added convenience of our award-winning WellBe virtual health assistant.”
HandsFree Health utilizes Over-the-Air (OTA) updates for customers who already own a WellBe Emergency Alert Smartwatch to receive automatic updates including the voice-enabled virtual health assistant function. The secure, HIPAA compliant, HandsFree Health, WellBe platform is also cloud-based which means that interactions users have with WellBe on-the-go, such as recording a glucose reading or setting a reminder, are also available on other WellBe enabled devices like the WellBe smart speaker or mobile app. HandsFree Health plans to roll out this new functionality early 2nd Quarter 2021 to all new and existing customers; followed by advancements in medication and appointment notifications.
