WELT launches health man­age­ment belt in Ja­pan

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - News -

The mem­ber com­pany of K-ICT Born2Global Cen­tre, WELT, has de­vel­oped the world’s first smart belt, de­signed to as­sist users with their health man­age­ment ef­forts. WELT is now plan­ning to start sell­ing the smart belt in Ja­pan - namely, its ac­com­plish­ment of 881 per cent of its fund­ing goal on Makuake, the lead­ing Ja­panese crowd­fund­ing plat­form.

Although it looks like a reg­u­lar belt, the smart belt de­vel­oped by WELT ac­tu­ally in­cor­po­rates cut­tingedge health man­age­ment tech­nol­ogy. The belt is able to mea­sure var­i­ous as­pects of the user’s health and ev­ery­day habits (waist size, num­ber of steps, num­ber of hours spent sit­ting, overeat­ing, etc.). The data ob­tained through these mea­sure­ments are au­to­mat­i­cally an­a­lyzed and sent to the user as a text mes­sage through a health man­age­ment mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion.

By wear­ing the smart belt, users can gain greater con­trol over their life­style habits and thus pre­vent the ma­jor causes (overeat­ing, lack of ex­er­cise, etc.) of meta­bolic syn­drome. In do­ing so, users can take steps to guard against meta­bolic syn­drome on a daily ba­sis and main­tain their phys­i­cal health.
