We are working on several innovative and pioneering solutions that integrate hardware, firmware, domain intelligence, big data management and healthy living needs into easily assessable, highly mobile and well integrated products.
Our Multi-Awards winning solution, WeHealth is a mobile solution for managing a healthy lifestyle through systematic tracking of user’s activities. We innovated WeHealth based on the concept to create a need and motivation for users to continuously engage in long term behavioural change. WeHealth implements a “supportive accountability framework”, allowing fitness trainers to view the user’s daily logs and offer feedback. The app tracks a number of metrics such as Physical Activity, Diet, Body & Mental Activity, providing a more accurate and comprehensive view for health professionals. Users would be motivated to stay healthy through consistent feedback from a network of health professionals.
WeHealth innovative solutions are supported by strong Intellectual Property Rights.
The team comprises of highly skilled IT workers with more than 20 years of experience in Healthcare IT, working together with a team of researchers from acclaimed university in Malaysia, University of Malaya. The solution has been implemented and commercialized, successful results from Corporate Fitness Program whereby participants have shown remarkable weight loss of up to 20kg in 4 months. The ease of application and having a mobile buddy that tracks and motivates you towards positive behavioral changes has increased the demand for our app.
