LifeQ, the preeminent independent provider of biometrics and health information derived from wearable devices and used in world-leading health management solutions, announced it has secured $47 million from top investors around the world. LifeQ co-founders Laurence Olivier, CEO, and Dr. Franco du Preez, Chief Scientist, made the announcement.
"LifeQ is proud to partner with the world's most distinguished investment groups to positively impact the future of health for all people," stated Mr. Olivier. "We are in the midst of a global health crisis caused by sedentary lifestyle, increased work demands, and unhealthy foods resulting in rapid increase in chronic illnesses worldwide, many of which are preventable. The COVID-19 situation has brought this problem into stark focus. LifeQ has already been integrated into some of the world's most innovative new wearable products to bring consumers the healthcare of the future."
LifeQ has two key value propositions: enabling wearable devices to provide business-grade and near clinical-grade health information streams; and using this data to generate health and wellness solutions for consumer, business and clinical applications. LifeQ is rapidly becoming the preferred health enabler and benchmark for the world's top consumer electronics companies, powering the next wave of digitally enabled insurance and health management, and has already had significant, life-changing and even life-saving impact on real users' lives.
"High accuracy, personalized, non-invasive digital health monitoring by wearable devices is the future of well-being and good health," stated Dr. du Preez.
