Klue, a Silicon Valley company that’s working to better utilize data gathered from wearable body trackers, is now working with Stanford University and Crossover Health, a primary care medical group, to study the effectiveness of Klue’s modules to affect change.
The partnership with Stanford involves conducting a scientific study of Klue’s Mindful Eating Messenger and Hydration Coach. The smartphone-based software helps to guide users to improve their eating and drinking routines and eventually lead to better overall health.
With Crossover Health, Klue is rolling out its artificial intelligence-based offering that uses evidence-based guidance to nudge patients to do and not do certain things.
Klue’s software relies on input data and readings gathered from Apple Watch, and potentially many other similar devices, to understand what users are doing, particularly their drinking and eating. “We are showing that the wrist’s movements themselves contain uniquely valuable insights from which we can unlock new behaviors in ways that weren’t previously possible,” said Katelijn Vleugels, the CEO of Klue. “Because what we do with our hands is key to very important behaviors, like eating for instance, being able to read the hands’ movements for the first time opens the door to offering users automatic micro-nudges that can lead to better habits.”
We covered the initial announcement of Klue’s tracking technology last October.
