ST. LOUIS, Mo., Dec. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) today announced
obVus has developed a wearable device called a "minder," which includes accessories that allow it to be worn as an advanced smartwatch on the wrist, but also on the back, neck, chest or stomach. The patented technology visually renders and coaches user or "mindee" posture and breathing. Every user is matched with a licensed health care provider or "minderPRO" of their choice, who with them establishes personalized wellness programs focused on building better health habits. The insightful data captured allows the person and their provider to efficiently navigate a clear path to wellness beyond the exam room, complete not just with tracking, but motivation and compliance management in a fun environment.
"Health care needs disruptive change," said Ken Rosenblood, CEO and Founder of obVus Solutions, Inc. "obVus Solutions develops technology centered around posture, breathing and activity to condition people to build healthy habits and to receive personalized wellness coaching from leading Lifestyle Medicine professionals. We are excited to work with ACLM to help improve people's health and health care overall."
"Tracking not just health data but health-plus-posture information and then being able to partner with patients beyond that data as a coach, motivator and compliance guide is an exciting development for physicians and other health providers," said ACLM President Dexter Shurney, MD, MBA, MPH, FACLM. "We welcome obVus Solutions to the Corporate Roundtable as a next-generation health technology provider, change agent and patient empowerment leader."
The Corporate Roundtable of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine convenes health care and lifestyle thought leaders, with a keen focus on the power of Lifestyle Medicine to transform health and health care. Roundtable members explore effective Lifestyle Medicine clinical applications, strategies for accelerating reimbursement and adoption and analysis of potential business-related opportunities.

ACLM addresses the need for quality education and certification, supporting its members in their individual practices and in their collective mission to domestically and globally promote Lifestyle Medicine as the first treatment option, as opposed to a first option of treating symptoms and consequences with expensive, ever increasing quantities of pills and procedures.
