Stayhealthy, Inc., an innovative, privately-owned health solutions company in health and fitness measurement, recently received medical license to sell from Health Canada’s Medical Devices Bureau for the Stayhealthy® HealthCENTER Kiosk™ Models 650 and 650-C, its FDA-cleared, self-serve health kiosk which offers clinical-grade health screenings.
Comparable to the Food and Drug Administration in the US, Health Canada reviews medical devices to assess their safety, effectiveness and quality before being authorized for sale in Canada. The recent approval by Health Canada’s Medical Devices Bureau paves the way for Canada’s thirty-five million plus residents to benefit from Stayhealthy’s health screening and monitoring capabilities including Stayhealthy’s electronic Personal Health and Fitness Record software.
“With Health Canada’s approval of our clinical-grade HealthCENTERs, final negotiations can proceed with several key prospective partnerships, which have been on-going,” stated John Collins, Chief Executive Officer of Stayhealthy,“we are pleased to expand our products and services into the Canadian market, which has similar challenges and opportunities as the US. Enabling citizens with convenient access to an intuitive means of participating in and monitoring their own wellness, to establish fitness goals and track trends over time, will result in profound health benefits for the many that utilize Stayhealthy solutions.”
Stayhealthy HealthCENTERs offer clinical-grade accurate health checks for blood pressure, heart rate, total body weight, BMI, total body composition (percent lean mass, percent body fat & hydration index), and vision (color blindness). Data from blood glucose meters can also be uploaded from the HealthCENTER to track screening results over time. The HealthCENTER can also be tailored to provide wellness programs, health education videos, on-line health monitoring tools, and relevant advertising/messaging.
