HandsFree Health Applies for a Patent for Remote Health Virtual Assistant
HandsFree Health, provider of the WellBe voice-enabled virtual assistant platform, has released patent-pending technology that will allow remote setup of the HandsFree Health platform from anywhere in the United States at any time while integrating automatic software updates as well. This technology will be applied across the HandsFree Health platform and WellBe, which will be available in the United States this year.
This patent further complements Handsfree Health's proprietary healthcare product offerings, which include a voice assistant, mobile applications, and wearable devices.
"While Americans are social distancing, we are struggling with how to help keep loved ones healthy and happy when we cannot be physically near them," said Mike Cardillo, co-founder and president of HandsFree Health, in a statement. "Our technology helps to minimize disruptions to healthcare while also providing the entertainment of a voice assistant to help relieve anxiety, especially among older or isolated populations."
The patent will enable remote universal registration and setup and continuous updates for consumers, employers, and health plans with the HandsFree Health platform.
"The home is the "front door" of healthcare, and now, more than ever, we need to access health and wellness resources within the home," said Dan Messina, co-founder of HandsFree Health, in a statement. "Reliable information paired with innovative health technology can promote adherence."
HandsFree Health is providing voice-enabled smart speakers and smart watches to seniors through a partnership with BeHomeSafe.
