Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) June 02, 2015

BaseHealth, the precision health and medicine company, today announced the launch of the BaseHealth API, a set of five calls that gives developers the ability to integrate genomic data and comprehensive health assessments into their health and wellbeing applications. The API adds genomic precision to any modern health and wellbeing offering.

The BaseHealth API is built on the BaseHealth assessment engine, which leverages genomic data in combination with clinical and behavioral analysis to provide personalized, evidence-based health assessments. The assessment engine is backed by 5 years of extensive chronic disease research and modeled on validated data from over 20,000 peer-reviewed papers. It currently includes data on specific risk factors for more than 40 common complex diseases as well as information on 17 drug responses and 9 food responses, with more research being added to the platform regularly.

“The BaseHealth API marks the first time in human history that genomic data is on-call for developers across the globe,” said Prakash Menon, CEO of BaseHealth. “We’re putting these services in the hands of developers who will use them to dramatically improve outcomes, drive better patient-centered care, and manage risk on the individual and population level.”

There are five initial services offered to developers with the BaseHealth API:

Anonymous Assessment – input a subject’s genetic, diet, lifestyle, and environmental information and BaseHealth returns a risk profile for that subject for a requested disease, including:

Disease risk level at age 65
Current odds for the disease

Effect of the genotype (e.g. Average, Increased, Decreased)
Attribute that the genotype effects (e.g. Drug effect in lowering blood pressure)
The number of variations that contribute to this effect
The list of variations that contribute to this effect
The ethnicity on which this effect is found

Food Response – input genetic variations and BaseHealth returns food response analysis including:

Crowdfunding campaign Launched for Worlds First Anti-Loss Smart Watch

Shenzhen, China (PRWEB) May 06, 2015

Chinese technology company, Elink-IOT, has launched a campaign on the crowd funding site Kickstarter to raise AUD$ 150,000 to finalize development of Watcher, the world’s first anti-loss smart watch.

Watcher is a smart watch designed to help the owner keep track of important items by vibrating to inform the wearer when the item is out of range.

Using a special patented technology, Watcher vibrates to inform the wearer and sends alerts on its E-paper display, and also features a fitness tracker and thermometer. The device carries an accessory that can be attached to a wide range of items including keys, wallet, camera, luggage, or a pet.

Watcher will vibrate to remind you to take care of your belongings, once the accessory moves beyond the range of 10 meters.

Watcher can work with up to 5 connected accessories simultaneously, and, when connected to an iPhone or Android smartphone by Bluetooth, the GPS location will also be recorded by the Watcher app.

The accessory is equipped with a rechargeable Lithium battery, which when fully charged can work for up to two weeks.

“Wouldn’t it be great to never lose your keys, bag, phone or anything ever again? This innovative device is useful in many situations, even helping to keep track of your children in a large crowd and avoid the stress of frantic searching. With Watcher, you will be able to neutralize the panic with the press of a button to lead you directly to them, saving valuable time and unnecessary stress,” the company spokesperson said.

After two years of research and development, the prototyping and FCC/CE certification phases have already been completed. The company is now ready to introduce the Watcher to the global market, and will use the funds raised to begin mass production and marketing in Aug. 2015. Additional information about the product and the crowd funding campaign can be found here:

Organic Muscle Launches World’s First USDA Certified Organic Pre-Workout Supplement

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 19, 2015

Having the energy to make it through a hard workout can be the difference between achieving fitness goals or failing. This fact has led pre-workout powders to become one of the most popular sections of the fitness supplement industry. Sadly, until now, pre-workout’s have been almost exclusively packed with chemicals, pesticides, GMO’s and artificial ingredients that can be dangerous and counterproductive. The innovative new supplement company Organic Muscle is redefining the industry with the the release of their Organic Citrus Berry Pre-Workout, the world’s first USDA certified organic pre-workout fitness formula. The response to the news from fitness enthusiasts has been wildly positive.

“Many people are skeptical of the shady ingredients, fillers, additives, and GMO’s included in the vast majority of workout supplements,” commented James Benefico, founder of Organic Muscle. “Our company is taking a revolutionary approach to fitness by offering only certified organic supplements comprised of the highest quality, battle tested ingredients. The difference in results is very dramatic.”

According to Benefico, Organic Muscle prides itself on sourcing their ingredients strictly from eco-friendly, organic certified American farms. Great care goes into making certain every product the company offers, including the Organic Citrus Berry Pre-Workout, is certified organic, Non-GMO, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, chemical free, hormone free and preservative free. This focus completely separates Organic Muscle from all other fitness and bodybuilding supplement companies.

The Organic Citrus Berry Pre-Workout’s primary ingredients include ginseng, rhodeola rosea, green tea, acai, yerba mate, maca root, cordyceps, and goji berry. The combined synergistic effects of the formula have won the product quick praise.

Emily G., from Boston, recently said, “I gave up on pre-workouts when I tightened my diet up and cut out all unnatural and artificial products and ingredients. I thought they were gone for good, until a friend told me about Organic Muscle. Now I enjoy Organic Muscle before training with weight or my yoga classes and I feel, perform and look better than ever. Five stars and fully recommended.”

Organic Muscle also offers premium certified organic protein powders and plans on releasing a wide variety of other organic fitness supplements in the upcoming months.

Vancouver Hosts the World’s First Integrative Fertility Symposium

Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) April 01, 2015

Natural fertility experts from around the world will be flocking to Vancouver to attend the world’s first Integrative Fertility Symposium ( April 30th to May 3rd, 2015, at Harbour Centre (SFU Downtown Campus), 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver BC. There will also be a free public talk Sunday, May 3rd, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Harbour Centre.

“The Integrative Fertility Symposium is the first of its kind in the world to bring together reproductive endocrinologists, urologists, Drs of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), naturopaths and Functional Medicine specialists with the one goal of helping patients conceive and have a healthy baby,” says conference co-organizer Dr Lorne Brown. For founder and clinical director of Acubalance Wellness Centre in Vancouver ( — the first Chinese medicine clinic in British Columbia to specialize in reproductive health and fertility treatment — this conference is the culmination of Dr Brown’s pioneering work over the last decade promoting integrative fertility care and the healthy baby approach.

The sold-out conference has attracted over 300 healthcare providers (there is now a waiting list for the upcoming 2016 symposium). The speaker list is made up of internationally recognized fertility experts speaking on a range of topics including:

    New research showing increase in live births with the addition of Traditional Chinese Medicine to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
    Male infertility as biomarker of health
    Immunological infertility and uterine receptivity

(Click here for a complete list

The integrative approach is a combination of both Western and Eastern medicine that aims to treat the whole patient and may combine high-tech fertility treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF) with natural therapies like acupuncture, diet and mind-body techniques like mindfulness meditation.

“The conference is not just about exchanging information and presenting studies but about all these reproductive medical experts getting together in a dynamic way to establish best practices and ways of working together,” says Dr Ray Rubio, conference co-organizer and President Emeritus and Executive Director of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM). “An integrative approach creates healthier mommies and daddies, which equals healthier pregnancies, reduced rates of miscarriage, reduced rates of complications in pregnancy and healthier take-home babies.”

The popularity of this symposium speaks to the groundswell of demand for integrative fertility treatment and the paradigm shift happening in fertility care. Modern reproductive medicine has made huge advancements in IVF and other reproductive technologies, but studies are showing that alternative medicine is proving to be effective at treating underlying causes of infertility, improving the overall health of male and female partners and in helping to increase live births.

Known internationally for his ground-breaking work as an educator and advocate for integrative fertility care, Dr Brown was the first Canadian to serve on the board of the ABORM as well as become the first Canadian to be certified as a Fellow of the ABORM. In addition to founding Acubalance, Dr Brown has made a significant contribution to the advancement of Reproductive Chinese Medicine worldwide through founding Pro D and — the largest English online resource for continuing education for Chinese Medicine reproductive health.

This conference also includes a free talk for the public.

CharmCare Introduces The H2: The Worlds Smallest and Lightest Wearable Blood Pressure Monitor on Indiegogo

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 13, 2014

The worldwide wearable electronics market already a $ 14 billion industry and expected to climb to $ 70 billion by 2024 (Source IDTECHEX), has another entry into the health wearable category: The H2 from CharmCare. The company has developed the world’s smallest and lightest wearable blood pressure monitor. The H2 Blood Pressure Monitor is currently being featured on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. The Indiegogo campaign is expected to reach $ 50,000 to enable the company to manufacture and distribute the product in the U.S.

The H2 can track blood pressure anytime, anywhere in just 20 seconds. The attractive, sleek, modern wristband is available in six different interchangeable band colors. While there are portable electronic blood pressure monitors already available in the U.S., the H2 is a true electronic wearable device that doesn’t require a smart phone or computer in order to operate it. Current blood pressure monitors are bulky and difficult for individuals to use when taking their own blood pressure. The H2 is easy to use and also records the blood pressure reading each time it’s taken so that hypertension sufferers can accumulate a record for their personal health information and for their physician.

According to the Center For Disease Control, 67 million adults (31%) have high blood pressure – that is one in every 3 American adults. It greatly increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, the first and third leading causes of death in the U.S. (source CDC website). High blood pressure or hypertension is often related to poor lifestyle choices and can often be managed and improved by making critical lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, cutting down on alcohol consumption and salt and increasing exercise and a healthy diet. The H2 has activity tracking capability to assist high blood pressure sufferers with managing and reducing the symptoms associated with hypertension. H2 also has an alarm feature to remind individuals to take their daily medication.

The H2 was developed by CharmCare, a company established in May 2004, in Seoul, Korea by founders Dong Hwa Lee and Dong Kyu Seo. Both founders have had a successful history in the medical device industry and between them hold over 23 patents in sensor-based medical devices and 10 patents in the wearable category in Korea and the U.S. The H2 is currently available on Indiegogo, the crowdfunding site and will ship in June 2015. The Indiegogo Campaign has several perks and gifts designed to appeal to caregivers and sufferers of high blood pressure. By contributing to the Indiegogo campaign, contributors can purchase the product to help reduce the time to bring this important product to market and to educate more people about the risks of high blood pressure.

CharmCare is currently in development creating a health management community platform that not only tracks activity levels, monitors and manages blood pressure but also fosters an online community that encourages healthy lifestyle choices and habits amongst individuals with hypertension risks. Investor and media inquiries are welcome.

About CharmCare

Established in 2004, CharmCare has been developing sensor-based medical devices for over 10 years and exporting them to more than 40 countries worldwide. With its most recent product, the H2, the worlds’ first wearable blood pressure monitor, CharmCare is promoting prevention with their ‘‘check your health anytime, anywhere!” products. By making it easy for patients that suffer from hypertension to monitor and manage their blood pressure throughout the day, CharmCare continues with its mission to increase overall health and happiness by living a healthy lifestyle.
