The IDEAL LIFE Body-Manager™ is designed for both weight-conscious individuals and patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). The IDEAL LIFE Body-Manager* is a body weight scale that measures weight and automatically stores and sends the information to a user's healthcare team.
CHF patients are often treated with multiple medications, and finding the optimal dosage can be a process of trial and error. Currently, one of the only ways to assess the effectiveness of a patient's drug therapy is by monitoring weight gain (caused by salt and water retention). Timing is critical, as quick adjustments to drug therapy at the onset of weight gain can often prevent possible emergency hospitalization. But vigilant monitoring can be a challenge for many individuals, especially those who find it difficult to stick to their diet and exercise programs.
Obese patients often face similar compliance challenges or lack the mobility to attend weekly support groups. For example, many morbidly obese individuals often lack the mobility or the motivation to attend weekly support groups, physician visits, or weight-loss program "weigh ins."
Our company devised a better solution for individuals suffering from CHF or obesity. With the IDEAL LIFE Body-Manager, users can quickly and easily capture, store, and send daily weight readings to their healthcare team via a fully automated process. The IDEAL LIFE Body-Manager - used in conjunction with the IDEAL LIFE Pod™, a wireless gateway - transmits real-time information through any mode of communication, including phone lines, cell phones, and the Internet.
The IDEAL LIFE Body-Manager can also facilitate two-way communication between users and healthcare providers, such as motivational text messages or nutritional tips. With the IDEAL LIFE system, individuals can experience all the benefits of a personal health and wellness coach or a weight-loss support group without ever leaving the comfort of their own home.
