Maternal healthcare tech innovator Emagine Solutions Technology has announced an exciting partnership with Withings Health Solutions, the business-to-business division of Withings, the global leader in connected health.
The collaboration is designed to improve maternal mortality by giving pregnant users of Emagine’s The Journey Pregnancy App access to premium blood pressure monitoring tools.
Withings is a pioneer of the connected health movement, known for creating the world’s first smart scale in 2009. Since then, its clinically validated and multi award-winning range of products are used by millions worldwide.
The partnership reflects Emagine’s efforts to highlight the importance of blood pressure management during pregnancy, especially in Black communities where studies show increased rates of high blood pressure and implicit bias in maternal health treatment.
To access the Withings devices, users of The Journey Pregnancy App simply sign up for the premium wellness coaching subscription. As a part of their package, they will receive a Withings Body Smart scale, a Withings BPM Connect blood pressure monitor and regular meetings with a certified wellness coach. Customers can use their HSA or FSA to pay for subscriptions.
Emagine is a prize-winning alumnus of Pharrell Williams’ Black Ambition Program with a mission to address the maternal health crisis with remote patient monitoring technology designed to improve pregnancy care.
