“High blood pressure contributes to nearly 1,000 deaths per day.”
Each year, millions of people throughout the world die from complications arising from non – communicable diseases (“NCDs”) such as hypertension (high blood pressure), and this number shows no signs of becoming lower. Too many people do not learn that they suffer from at least one (1) NCD until it is much too late for any medical professional to render the assistance she/he requires.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has indicated that approximately 75,000,000 American adults are hypertensive, whereas less than half of those Americans have ever visited a or their physician regarding their hypertension. This is a sordid state of affairs in urgent need of redress.
The treatment of NCDs, the “silent killers,” has cost billions of dollars worldwide. Research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also suggests that the United States of America alone spends over USD$47,000,000,000.00 annually in direct medical expenses. In Africa, hypertension diverts financial resources from the sectors in desperate need those resources, such as education and technology. 1 in every 5 Kenyans suffers from hypertension, and only a quarter of all hypertensive Kenyans is able to seek medical treatment in respect of the same.
Though high blood pressure is prevalent in numerous countries worldwide, it is preventable. We at Frett Technologies have looked at how changes could be implemented, and have devised a solution.
Frett Technologies’ F1–T™ consists of a pair of hardware and software: a wearable fitness device (hardware) and the F1 – T Life™ mobile app (software). This system encourages an active and healthy lifestyle which will either prevent the development of hypertension altogether, or stave off its signs and symptoms for those who are already hypertensive. F1–T™ is a biofeedback system that constantly monitors the user’s blood pressure and offers user – friendly incentives on actively pursuing a healthy lifestyle through frequent exercise and healthy diets.
Those who use F1–T™ will also receive feedback metrics other than blood pressure, such as their heart beats per minute, blood oxygen levels, sleep quality, and so much more. The overwhelming majority of medical professionals will agree that hypertension and diabetes are ‘lifestyle’ diseases; the F1–T™ system is critical for warding off both. The objective of Frett Technologies’ F1-T™ system is to diminish the occurrence of high blood pressure through the regular monitoring of its user’s blood pressure through the promotion of an overall healthier and more active way of life.
