Latest Kickstarter News

Telehealth firm mHS launches Kickstarter campaign for new telehealth project

Oct 21, 2021

Its latest telehealth project will allow family caregivers to monitor six patients remotely. Credit: mHS myHealth Sentinel Holdings, a Singapore-based telehealth company, is seeking public funds for its latest telehealth project on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. WHAT IT'S ABOUT For the past 12 months, mHS has developed TM+ Telehealth, which will allow caregivers to monitor six patients remotely. It features the smart assistant TM+ technology that measures a patient's oxygen level, blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, body weight. The system can notify caregivers of abnormalities found through the monitor. WHY IT MATTERS The company underscored the need for a tool to "remotely monitor the health and wellness of our loved ones while minimising physical contact with each other" during the pandemic. mHS Director and co-founder Jack Ng said they launched the project on Kickstarter to reach out to more people beyond Singapore. THE LARGER TREND To extend access to healthcare for migrant workers during the pandemic, Fullerton Health in Singapore deployed its health kiosk that combines telemedicine with automated vending of medicines. In other news, Doctor Anywhere , another Singaporean telehealth firm, has sought investments and raised SG$88 million ($65.7 million) in a Series C funding round to "further deepen" its presence across Southeast Asia, as well as to enter new markets. ON THE RECORD "We have been working on this idea – monitor the health and wellness of our loved ones remotely while we minimise physical contact with each other – since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic; it is [now] ready to be deployed. Instead of limiting it to just Singapore, we want it to benefit more people [and] Kickstarter is the right platform to do this," Ng said. Tags:
