NEW YORK, February 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Somatix, the real-time gesture detection company, today announced
SmokeBeat taps into smartwatch and smartband accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, among others, to identify and distinguish smoking from other hand-to-mouth gestures. It employs Machine Learning and Big Data analytics to process massive volumes of gesture data, providing physicians and clinicians, via a customizable dashboard, complete statistics on users' smoking habits and patterns for ongoing awareness of treatment success. SmokeBeat also provides users with further incentives to quit, supplying information on the long-term health and financial impact of continuing their smoking habit.
"SmokeBeat is the missing link in the quest for a winning smoking cessation treatment," said Eran Ofir, CEO & Co-founder of Somatix. "When new studies show that medications alone don't help smokers quit and researchers bring evidence proving that supplementing common treatments with behavior consultation will likely lead to successful smoking cessation - SmokeBeat delivers on that promise. SmokeBeat is a smoker-centric solution. It passively monitors smoking episodes, eliminating the need for smokers to manually report their weaknesses every time they smoke. SmokeBeat understands the smokers' need to have continuous 24/7 support during times they are left on their own between periodical visits to the clinic."
SmokeBeat performs detailed analysis and cross-referencing of all information acquired with a monitored individual's profile and activity history. The Somatix platform yields relevant conclusions and insights that translate to actionable CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) principle-based recommendations, with the proprietary Somatix SERF™ (Social, Emotional, Rational and Financial) motivation engine issuing variable combinations of personalized incentives when required.
HIMSS 2018 will be held in Las Vegas, NV at the Venetian - Palazzo - Sands Expo Center March 5-9, 2018. Somatix will demonstrate SmokeBeat at booth 10343, Hall G, Level 1. To set up a meeting, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://somatix.com/news-events/.
