SAN DIEGO, July 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Personalized Health Company ph360 today announced full funding status within 24 hours of launching their new virtual health assistant Shae™ on the more progressive Kickstarter and Indiegogo crowdfunding platforms. "We are thrilled with the success of these campaigns thus far both in terms of funds raised and the engagement of supporters. People are clearly embracing the concept of virtual health technology," says Matt Riemann, health science expert and founder of Shae™ which launched on both Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
Shae™, Siri for your health, uses interactive voice and text conversations to communicate a personalized health plan with users in real time via their phone, tablet, laptop or smartwatch. Based on its consideration of an individual's current gene expression, Shae™ calculates over 10,000 data points and 500 ratios to provide personalized food, fitness and lifestyle recommendations for optimal health. The assistant then connects with wearable health devices such as Fitbit and Apple Watch and also external data sources around the world such as local weather services and air quality reports to provide its on-demand health and lifestyle insights.
ph360, the engine behind Shae™, became available to the public in 2014 after more than a decade of development and is currently in use in 17 countries to improve stress, sleep, weight loss, energy, fitness and digestion while reversing signs of obesity, diabetes and heart disease for users. Its founder and health science expert, Matt Riemann, has recently addressed the World Health Organization, United Nations and advised the US Army on the value of personalized health and medicine addressed by ph360.
"It's a very important time for us to transition into the new personal health paradigm," says Riemann. "We are the unhealthiest we have ever been with over half of the world's population currently overweight, suffering from pain or disease, or lacking energy and performance from their body. Why? Because no one knows exactly what they should eat, when they should move, who they should hang out with, how they should think, or where they should spend their time." Riemann continues, "With Shae, we now have the science, medicine and technology to identify, understand, and solve these problems for each unique person and finally put a stop to the negligent application of one-size-fits-all generic health."
As health technology continues to emerge into a new market, many startup companies like ph360 are now utilizing crowdfunding platforms to help fundraise their efforts. "We are excited to get great financial support but also the attention of the public," says Riemann. "Our goal is to make personalized health accessible and affordable for everyone on the planet, and we are well on our way."
