PERTH, Australia, March 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Bearn, a Californian based wellness technology company, has now launched the integrated AHI BodyScan on both iOS and Android platforms.
Bearn’s unique wellness app rewards Users for health and wellness activities including fitness, nutrition, weight management, sleep, stress management and more. Users of the Bearn app earn reward dollars for healthy behaviours. The more individuals and families focus on their health, the more they earn. This gamifies wellness in a powerful way to help Users become proactive about their health. The Bearn app framework gives User’s access to the AHI in-app scan technology to assess body dimensions and composition changes over time and rewarded for reaching their goals. Bearn will also be launching the FaceScan technology which provides health measurements using transdermal optical imaging analysis (ie, the ability to extract human metrics through the skin) and advanced AI.
The first step in managing health is to establish a baseline. From there, a consistent and repeatable process to measure change is critical. Previously, measures methods were prohibitive due to the extensive cost and time requirement. Using AHI’s scanning technology, users can digitally and privately self-assess their dimension, composition, and other health metrics to self-monitor their health and risk. Bearn will initially offer individual scans with the intention to offer subscription packages in their second release. The added benefit is that the Bearn app provides coaching and guidance to help Users take the necessary steps to improve health while also rewarding the goal-orientated behaviours. This will allow the User to use the combination of BodyScan and FaceScan as both a risk assessment package and a motivating tool for redemption in the Bearn Marketplace as well as through the employer and payer funded model to leverage scan assessment and data. Essentially this “pays” employees and the insured to actively improve and measure their health and wellness.
Aaron DrewFounder and Chief Executive Officer of Bearn said:
“We’re excited to finally have the application in the stores. We have eight partners with a combined audience of over 10 million potential users that we expect to have ready for release between April, and July 2022. This will be further enhanced with our recent acquisition of Sage Health and Wellness. We have a stunning pipeline of partners that have all embraced the integrated offering and will see the Bearn application exposed to over 50 million people across their combined audiences.
When we entered into the agreement with AHI, we undertook a first-year target of one million active users. Now that we are live, I look forward to delivering this outcome for the benefit of the partnership, but also to show my appreciation for the AHI team for their patience and support throughout the last year.”
Now that Bearn is live, it plans to offer AHI’s technology in a bundle within Bearn’s existing platform allowing Users to engage with the AHI BodyScan, and FaceScan separately or together as CompleteScan. This provides the User options: pay as you go or subscription packages to appeal to different budgets. Bearn will also encourage their customers to apply their earnings and employer-sponsored incentive dollars to purchase upgrades to get even more value out of their Bearn experience.
Bearn is currently integrating the new platform with eight of its partners.
Accuro Fit (Accuro), has one million active Users, with integration near completion. Accuro has commenced internal promotions in preparation for a full rollout.
