Almost 5 years ago, we started our project in Colorado. We worked with experienced professionals from John Hopkins University and Aetna on a groundbreaking research study on the Gamified Health and obesity, called “Innovation for Humanity”
The results from this study formed the inspiration behind our Keeko project; we successfully launched our first pilot with United Way and the City of Parker, and the positive response encouraged us to work towards impacting people’s health on a larger scale. And so, Playpal was born.
Playpal was incubated to make consolidated health data & AI processed knowledge a reality, with the added monetary incentive of health tokens.
We started with the successful integration of the entire Fitbit Series with our Proof of Concept in 2017. Then, we refined our Algorithm via successive integrations with leading mHealth brands - like Google Fit, Samsung Health, MyFitness Pal, and Apple Health - in order to accommodate the vast majority of smartphone users into our rewards-based gamified health ecosystem.
Soon after, we made gamified health a reality. Not only did we incorporate community leaderboards Soon after, we made gamified health a reality. Not only did we incorporate community leaderboards into our platform, but we launched (and integrated with) our proprietary health games: Keeko Combat & Bon Bon Jump.
In parallel to the development of our in-house integration protocols across all health verticals, we also focus on R&D pilots via partnerships & integrations with various niche health IoTs.
So far, we have successfully synced with an automated calorie band (Healbe Gobe2 smart band), a smart tape (Bagel Lab’s smart measuring tape), an EEG monitor (BrainBit’s EEG monitor headband), and a generic smart watch (Fendong). By running this parallel thread, we have been able to build and simulate our algorithm in order to test vertical and horizontal correlations between a multitude of metrics which, in isolation, yield no meaningful analyses, but in conglomeration yield invaluable health insights.
While we have achieved great milestones in a short period of time, we are not stopping here.There is so much more that we have planned for our users. So stay tuned!
