GOQii to launch medical-grade wearables in 6-12 months: CEO
The Mumbai and Palo Alto-based company will launch the medical-grade wearable devices that will be clinically accurate and monitor ECG, blood pressure and temperature, among others, Vishal Gondal, founder and chief executive of GOQii, told ET.
The company is launching its first product, under its Smart Vital smartwatch, which can track blood pressure, oxygen levels, among other functions, and which, according to Gondal, has undergone third-party clinical trials as part of the required regulatory process.
“Over the last six months, we have upgraded all our medical manufacturing processes, and now, we have completed clinical trials, and our devices are classified as close to medical devices. This was conducted by third-party performed in India, and GOQii devices will be apt to be used for remote consultations and remote diagnostics,” Gondal said. “Our data can be shared with doctors, who can now actually give advice based on that,” he added.
