The expanded ecosystem will include popular medical devices from top manufacturers like iHealth®, Accu-Chek®, Strava®, Omron®, Dexcom®, Withings® and more.

“WellBe is the perfect virtual assistant to help users manage readings from smart medical devices like blood pressure cuffs and glucometers because it meets HIPAA compliance standards to protect sensitive health information,” said Mike Cardillo, CEO, HandsFree Health. “With these new integrations, HandsFree Health helps users better manage their health by pulling information from home health devices into one easy-to-use platform controlled by their voice.”

“We want to create an environment that is not only convenient but also safe, allowing family and caretakers to turn off an appliance, close a garage, or even unlock doors for first responders in the event of an emergency,” said Kelly Johnston, EVP, HandsFree Health.

HandsFree Health will be releasing their new integrations along with future integration through OTA (over the air) updates allowing new and current customers to access the technology. Expansions are planned to begin rolling out in the 2nd Quarter of 2021 with additional integration to follow.
