Check out some of the emerging wellness tech for the week of April 11-15:
– Virtual tech platform Teamflow helps organizations recreate an in-person culture in a remote world. It builds virtual offices complete with cubicles, break rooms and conference rooms that allow employees’ avatars to interact and collaborate with people and places, such as stopping by a coworker’s desk to ask a question. For more formal meetings or collaboration, the platform has note-taking tools and shared document views. Teamflow currently offers three organization size-based subscriptions.
– The app-based therapy solution Real offers programs and resources for developing a mental health care routine. Offering a suite of on-demand mental health tools, the app uses a therapist-designed, self-guided approach through the platform’s series of Pathways, which include career, stress, relationship and anxiety. A recent round of funding will allow further investment into health research. The $13 per month membership includes unlimited access to the app’s programming.
– Jellyvision announces the launch of ALEX Connect, an app that centralizes benefit information for employees. Through the app, employees can interact with their health-care plans, ID cards, in-network provider searches, a built-in wellness tracker and more. Plus, the app can re-engage employees with their benefits throughout the year using targeted push notification reminders, engagement surveys and more.
– Fitbit introduces its Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification feature, which can run passively on Fitbit wearables and assess heart rhythm even when a user is sleeping or still. The feature uses a PPG-based algorithm for a long-term heart-rhythm assessment that then can alert users of potential photoplethysmography atrial fibrillation (AFib). Because AFib can increase the risk for stroke, heart failure or other heart-related complications, the feature will send a notification to see a health-care professional if a change is detected.
– Unmind introduces its new cultural change platform that provides employers with solutions to measure and improve mental health within an organization. The platform includes four product suites: Unmind Learning, a training platform for managers; Unmind Insights, analytics tools and dashboards; Unmind Spaces, a well-being community with events and gatherings; and Unmind Wellbeing, tools and resources for employees. Initially the platform will be accessible to a select group of brands in the United Kingdom, but demos are available for U.S., Australian and French organizations.
