In today’s emerging era of connected health monitoring, Withings takes the lead with the launch of BeamO, an innovative 4-in-1 device putting home health checks in focus. BeamO combines EKG, oximeter, stethoscope, and thermometer sensors in a portable device smaller than a smartphone, transforming the traditional body thermometer into a powerful tool for daily monitoring of heart and lung health.
BeamO is a groundbreaking multi-scope unit offering a transformative method for at-home health monitoring. It integrates photoplethysmography (PPG), electrodes, and an advanced hot spot sensor to perform blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), heart rate readings, medical-grade 1-lead EKG, as well as accurate and stable measurements of body temperature.
Éric Carreel, founder and CEO of Withings, emphasizes BeamO’s role in improving telemedicine. Despite the rise of telemedicine post-pandemic, there are still challenges, particularly the lack of opportunities for healthcare professionals to conduct routine checks. BeamO will fill this gap by combining the functionality of four different medical devices into one, enabling monitoring and guided examinations in telemedicine.
BeamO is equipped with advanced sensors interpreting blood flow patterns, temperature, and acoustic information. It can perform blood oxygen saturation, heart rate readings, 1-lead EKG, and precise measurements of the heart and lungs that can be transferred, stored, and shared through a user-friendly app.
By automatically syncing with the Withings app via Wi-Fi, BeamO creates a comprehensive health record over time. The Withings app introduces new features for BeamO, enabling easy tracking of individual and familial health history. Users can record and share health statistics, receive concrete advice, and manage medication information, setting reminders for medications.
BeamO is planned to be released for 249.95€ in June 2024, after FDA approval of its EKG capability. With this innovative device, Withings takes a significant step toward making advanced health monitoring accessible to every individual in their own home.
