Innovation in healthcare tech has seen a major influx in recent years given the continued growth in wearables and the potential for the use of data analytics to improve health. Kenzen is making a difference by creating a wearable smart device enabled to monitor a person’s health by utilizing non-invasive sweat analysis. Kenzen’s mission is to impact personal health technology with continuous monitoring of the body through key biomarkers.
In Healthcare, Kenzen has developed the ECHO Smart Patch, a device aimed at “at risk” populations such as the elderly or employees who work in challenging environments, such as miners and firefighters, it is also for high impact athletes, and is being tested by the San Francisco 49ers and University of Kansas athletics department. The Kenzen smart patch provides analysis and monitoring of a person’s hydration levels, vital signs, and other types of bio data in real time. And, the data is sent to smartphones and the Kenzen cloud so that data can be analyzed and learned from.
Reducing costs: Kenzen sees the potential for decreased costs in healthcare. Smart wearable patches can help prevent conditions such as dehydration and hyponatremia. This is possible by obtaining a wealth of data through a real-time assessment of hydration state and electrolyte levels. Using smart patches, people can proactively take control of their health. Doctors can shift their roles to becoming health coaches.
