Biometrics Leader LifeQ Revolutionizes Healthcare with Disease Screening and Early Detection

LifeQ, the company that uses globally-recognized watch brands to gather personalized, clinical-grade data, announced it can detect as many as 40 sleep and cardiovascular disorders with smart watches and other wearable devices, with an anticipated 100 diseases and disorders within the next two years—revolutionizing healthcare and improving consumers’ lives. LifeQ co-founders Laurence (Laurie) Olivier, CEO, and Dr. Franco du Preez, Chief Science Officer, made the announcement.

“Wearable devices are the future of personalized medicine, providing continuous health monitoring and enabling the prevention of common diseases and disorders,” stated Mr. Olivier. “There is an urgent need for accessible, clinical-grade insights on a broad scale for both healthy and sick humans, from young to old, preventative and curative, chronic and acute, whether before, during, or post-treatment. This coverage is now achievable—not with complex medical instruments, but with simple everyday wearables.”

Smart watches and other wearables allow ongoing measurement of an additional layer of critical biometrics beyond the commonly available heart rate, skin temperature, and blood pressure, to sleep activity, respiratory rate, and daily fitness, that make clinical-grade health screening and monitoring possible.

“LifeQ’s mission is to help people age well,” stated Dr. du Preez. “By delaying biological aging, reducing the probability of chronic disease, screening for the early onset of disease, as well as maximizing human performance, harnessing more energy, and gaining a deeper understanding of one’s own unique body and health—lives may be transformed for the better.”

LifeQ is integrated with top global brands, including Fossil, TAG Heuer, Mont Blanc, Suunto, and Xiaomi, and three companies in the global Fortune 50, comprising approximately 50% of all wearables manufacturers in the world, delivering connected health solutions that help people make better lifestyle choices every day.

LifeQ complements and supports physicians and healthcare providers in their important diagnostic work, capturing biometrics 24/7, 365 days a year, flagging issues, and facilitating diagnosis and treatment,” stated Dr. Armin Deffur, Chief Medical Officer. Consumers benefit from knowing their health state in a daily application, as well as what they have done to either improve or penalize their current state.
