LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, CENTRAL HALL, BOOTH 13518– VOXX Advanced Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today that it has entered into a license and distribution agreement with Reemo Health, the healthy aging company providing disruptive connected technology and services. The agreement is to distribute the Reemo Personal Independence Smartwatch, which combines wearable technology and a Personal Emergency Response Service (PERS) into a modern and familiar watch form-factor that is purpose-built for senior preferences.
"We are excited to partner with Reemo Health as part of VOXX Advanced Solutions' continued strategy to expand its distribution and logistics capabilities within the fast-growing connected healthcare market. We are impressed by Reemo's innovative design and simplified solution which we believe will change the somewhat negative perception of PERS devices and bring this category into the realm of truly smart, attractive and connected devices," said Tom Malone, President, VOXX Advanced Solutions Corporation.
Through its Healthy Aging PlatformTM, Reemo helps healthcare organizations proactively impact the three pillars of health in their senior populations – physical, behavioral and social well-being. Reemo connects the senior with the people, resources and activities that are most relevant and important to them; earning the right to be at their side everywhere they go. This is the foundation for the plan-sponsored programs Reemo deploys with payer, provider and pharma clients, including fall prevention, social isolation, remote monitoring, care management, patient trials, and as an integrated benefit in Medicare plan designs. The resulting connected health application delivers direct engagement and data capture to support physical, behavioral, satisfaction, and quality outcomes across the continuum of aging.
At the core of the consumer experience is the Personal Independence Smartwatch, which is a combination of an easy-to-use activity tracker and PERS device, with built-in GPS location. The watch records steps and heart rate and also provides 24/7 emergency call-for-help and live support directly from the watch, with no connection to a phone or internet needed.
"To meet the needs of our sophisticated payer, provider and pharma clientele requires advanced platform technology and scalable distribution and fulfillment capabilities," said John Valiton, CEO of Reemo Health. "VOXX Advanced Solutions has an incredible track record of successful distribution and logistics in healthcare. Partnering with VOXX ensures that regardless of volume demands, Reemo can readily scale to achieve our growth objectives."
