SPOTCHECK Partners with SEED Group and The Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum to Extend the Preventive Health Platform in the UAE.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 28 March 2019
Dubai-based innovative health and wellness platform, SPOTCHECK, has partnered with SEED group, a diversified group of companies owned and chaired by The Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum establishing strategic partnerships with organizations in various sectors and accelerates their presence within the Middle East., to offer its innovative preventative health assessment service in the UAE. The partnership marks the foray into initiatives at government and national level.
The SPOTCHECK health kiosk uses health assessment technology approved by the FDA and CE and has won high acclaim and awards in the health and wellness technology arena for its innovation. Clients will benefit from a simple 8-minute non-invasive health assessment, whereby the kiosk will evaluate 30 health parameters, including stress analysis, fatigue index, hydra, using near-infrared light technology. SPOTCHECK aims to encourage its clients to take a holistic approach to their wellbeing through the digital wellness platform – ENHAPP. They will be able to use their personalized data to monitor the progress of their personal wellness goals as well as measure the effectiveness of their wellness programs.
“There are so many important issues to be addressed throughout these days, but health remains top of all. This partnership with SPOTCHECK is essential to support our objective of improving health outcomes in and hopefully beyond the UAE. The SPOTCHECK-SEED Group alliance is the latest example of SEED Group’s commitment to finding partners to help identify innovative solutions to close these disparities in health”, said Hisham Al Gurg, CEO of SEED Group and The Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum.
SPOTCHECK was co-founded by Dr. Manoj Menon, who has more than 27 years of experience and expertise in strategic information technology planning with special emphasis on the healthcare sector. In his opinion, clients will benefit massively from being screened at least four times a year and by following the recommended nutrition and exercise programs accessed via ENHAPP.
“The SPOTCHECK self-service health kiosk is designed to keep users in mind. It is both non-invasive and accurate. The kiosk assesses the health in three broad areas which are body composition, stress & fatigue and vascular health. When it comes to body composition, we use different technology compared to what you commonly see in the market. The method of assessing body composition is based on the principles of light absorption, reflectance, and near-infrared spectroscopy. This approach differs very significantly from the bio-electrical impedance (BIA) analysis, mostly used by competing for service providers or fitness facilities. BIA accuracy rate reduces significantly with common factors like time of the last food intake, last consumption of alcohol, hydration level during the assessment, last workout time and women’s menstrual cycle. Furthermore, BIA should be avoided by users with pacemakers and internal heart defibrillators” said Dr. Manoj Menon, Chief Information Officer, SPOTCHECK.
Dr. Menon continues, “The strategic partnership with SEED group will open opportunities where SPOTCHECK can be a part of the government and national level wellness initiatives. Our aim is to be the leading wellness platform in this region and to gradually go global.”
SPOTCHECK is a B2B2C wellness company that motivates, drives and enables people to lead healthier lives in ways that are sustainable. The company’s digital solutions help companies implement engaging employee wellness programs and partner with the network of wellness service providers. The on-the-spot and non-invasive health kiosk and innovative platform-based end-to-end solutions help ensure lower Medicare costs and a healthier community.
