Modwells: personal modules for wellness
Modwells, created through Artefact, delivers a consumer-focused healthcare experience integrated into your daily life. It improves your physical and emotional health, and enhances your quality of life. The system respects the unique health and wellbeing needs of each user. Modwells accommodates those needs through a customizable solution that blurs the line between traditional medical products and consumer products.
A customizable solution
The modwells system allows you to combine biometric data in any combination that suites you and ultimately allows you to look at different combinations of data in a way that makes sense to your situations and needs.
Collecting biometric data
The modwells system consists of input/output objects called “mods” that are designed to be carried or worn. As inputs, they collect and assess environmental and biometric data. As outputs, they alert you when the data is off track from your goals, display the status of the collected data, and share collected data to your network. They
can be used individually or combined with other mods. It’s up to you how you use them.
Assess and display health data
The data collected by the mod is sent via a wireless connection to the cloud and to selected people in your support group including friends and even doctors. It provides direct access to health data and presents it in a consumable way on any device such as a phone or tablet.
Collecting health data to accompany people’s natural body awareness
By bringing biometrics into our everyday environment we can create a set of tools that help build better awareness of our bodies and give us better insights into how our habits and behaviors promote or take away from our wellbeing.
A case study: assessing posture
The posture garment accessory consists of a washable stretch sensing eTextile and a snap connection that allows you to easily attach a “move” mod. When attached, the mod is used to power your garment and collect the data. The garment’s muti-directional sensing measures side/side, forward/back, and twisting movement. The mod assesses the data and provides haptic feedback that alerts you when your posture does not match your goal
Informing people about health choices in context and providing in depth information accessible anywhere
The more we learn about our bodies, how to improve them, and where to go to get the right help, the more we feel we are in control and the better quality of life we can achieve. The mods provide alerts and feedback in context to help you make the right decisions. A mobile application provides in depth information about your data, related health information and suggestions on how to improve.
Centered around your goals
Improving health and maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires tangible, measureable goals and a support group to help keep you on track. Our solution brings patient data, doctors and your support group together to help set goals, measure and assess them to keep you on track and stay healthy
