Nokia Announces Consumer Connected Health Products

By Ken Briodagh June 21, 2017

Nokia has recently announced the availability of its largest-ever, most comprehensive line of connected consumer health products on the market. Completing the transition of products from the acquired Withings brand, Nokia trackers, scales, vital health devices and home products will now be available in-store and online through top retailers.

“Nokia’s global expansion into digital health builds on Nokia’s unmatched track record of quality, reliability and trust, which are characteristics that are all critical to success in the health industry,” said Brad Rodrigues, interim president, Nokia Technologies. “The products are beautiful, easy to use and fit seamlessly into people’s daily lives, enabling individuals to easily monitor and improve their health.”

From those desiring a healthy change without a drastic behavior overhaul, to those looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle, Nokia said it has designed the line to meet the widest range of consumer health needs. New products include Nokia Body, a BMI Wi-Fi connected scale, and Nokia BPM+, a compact blood pressure monitor with a flexible cuff. The redesigned Nokia Health Mate app functions as the heart of the ecosystem by giving users a 360-degree view of their well-being.

“Nokia’s line of digital health products delivers actionable insights, giving users the equivalent of a daily check-up,” said Cedric Hutchings, VP, Digital Health, Nokia. “Today’s launch extends the accessibility of our products to a broader range of users and needs, giving families the personalized experience they need to live healthier lives together.”

Nokia has been focused on transforming the dynamic between patients, doctors and the medical community with tools focused on the prevention of chronic conditions. Through its partnerships with institutions of medical research and clinical trials like Scripps, the University of Pennsylvania, the Mayo Clinic, the American Medical Group Association, Stanford MedX, Ochsner Health System and the University of Helsinki, Nokia has shown commitment to collaborating with leaders in the medical community to positively impact societal health worldwide.

“To face the global health crisis of chronic diseases related to lifestyle and behavior, we need powerful and engaging tools and solutions,” said Matthew Diamond, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer, Nokia. “Nokia is committed to shifting the focus from treatment to prevention, empowering consumers to take control of their health.”
