Help us launch Lifebooster, a new and innovative system that utilizes recent mobile technology to bring healthy living back to the workplace.
We want to help people who feel that their jobs or schedules make it too difficult to maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle. Our electronic wristband and mobile application will combine a gentle reminder system, tracking platform, and fun personalized challenges to give each person the opportunity to create their own personal game plan towards an optimal healthy lifestyle.
Current employee health programs tend to revolve around chiropractor visits, massage therapists, and other physiotherapeutic remedies. These are not ideal solutions because they target people who have already developed serious health issues. Most of the time, these “solutions” only deal with physical discomfort and other symptoms of the problem. We want to create a solution that deals with the heart of the problem: employees tend to remain in one position for the majority of their work day.
Employers also try to offset this inactivity with gym passes. However, it can be hard for employees with busy schedules to find time to utilize these gym passes. Even for the employees that do take advantage of these fitness facilities, studies have shown that it is better to make small changes throughout the work day than sit still for 8 hours and workout for an hour or two afterwards. In other words employees can’t just forget about their health while they’re at work and then “make up for it later” with intense exercise; they need to make small conscious changes throughout the day to stay healthy.
This is where we come in. We want to supply people with the tools that they need to understand and make those small changes, stay motivated to stick to those changes through seeing their progress over time, as well as make the whole process fun through a social sharing, challenges, and gamification features. LifeBooster is going to help busy people boost their health to the next level in a fun, balanced, and easy way.
Our package will consist of a silicon wristband that uses low energy Bluetooth technology to communicate with a smartphone app and web platform. The band will track certain processes within the body and will relay this information to the app which displays it in real-time to the user. Some of this information will include:
- sleep patterns and quality (helping the user sleep better and wake up at the best point in their sleep cycle)
- activity levels (the user’s heart rate, number of steps they take per day, how often they get up and move, etc)
- hydration (how much water you drink a day, how often you do so)
- diet (remind you to eat small healthy snacks on a regular schedule, etc)
By building a package for corporations, we hope to reach out to people and help them start taking the small steps towards feeling better, and ultimately being a healthier, happier, and more productive people and employees.
Now who doesn't want that?
$2500 will be put towards developing the initial mobile application to begin testing and refining with our beta customers, while licensing external hardware. This allows us to begin to work with the people who have already requested our service (whew!)! Also, working with them will help us get rid of any nasty bugs quickly, and push towards an offical grand launch!
$10, 000 Will allow us take on more beta customers, begin building our web support platform (with employee log-ins, etc), and to start designing the wristband that will communicate with the app for our future manufacturing. We will have had the resources to refine which features were most effective and requested, so we'll be ready to start rocking and rolling with the physical component too!
If you have any further questions at all, please feel free to reach out to us through the contact us portion of our website.
We will do our very best to clarify on anything we've left unclear.
Thank you all so much!
We are so excited to begin building this will all of your help and input.
