LAS VEGAS, Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* will provide connectivity for the WellNestTM wearable from Elements of Genius (EoG) which will let you seamlessly manage and communicate daily medical information with families, caregivers and providers. The EoG team is working to bring the unique wearable to market later this year over the highly secure AT&T network.
As the population increases in age and the family unit is geographically separated, the WellNestTM wearable will provide an opportunity to use technology in a way that creates meaningful connections between those taking care of loved ones. The WellNest platform and wearable will enable features such as medication adherence management and advanced location-based services. All of these features will be supported by a product and a personalized ecosystem of social care.
"AT&T's connectivity services allow connected health solutions, such as the WellNest wearable, to give caregivers, patients and their loved ones the opportunity to change the conversations we have in between visits and build a better-rounded picture of patient health," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Internet of Things, AT&T.
"With AT&T's connectivity services, we'll help provide true and meaningful connections between family members, their parents and those in their 'circle of care,'" said Jonathan Ramaci, CEO, Elements of Genius. "As the population increases in age and the family unit is geographically separated, we find an incredible opportunity to use technology in a way that creates connections, reiterates the importance of care and helps us stay connected to our loved ones. People want to ensure that their loved one's golden years are truly connected years."
WellNest combines healthcare and connected technologies. The WellNest wearable is expected to be available in September 2016. For more information about WellNest go to www.elementsofgenius.com.
