Withings BeamO will bring new tech to digital health and tele-medicine

Techstination feature for Thursday, February 1, 2024

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     The French digital wellness company Withings once again gathered lots of attention at CES this year for its latest gadget called BeamO.   It looks sort of like a little TV remote….but is packed with sensors that allow it to take an EKG, your temperature, your blood oxygen level…and serve as a stethoscope that can allow you and medical professionals to hear your heart and lungs…during a telehealth visit.   It could be a game changer once  FDA approved and on the market later this year.  Product manager Livia Robic..

“You can have up to eight users.  This product was developed for family use.  So if you want to track your children’s health, your partner’s health, your elderly parents’ health, you can have them all have a profile on your product.”

The price will likely be about 250 dollars..and the hope is insurance companies could cover all or some of the cost.   Learn more at www.withings.com.
