Azoi today announced Wello, an innovative health monitoring device embedded within a mobile phone case.

With just a few powerful sensors, Wello fits onto a smartphone and measures a number of key vitals including blood pressure, electrocardiography (ECG), heart rate, blood oxygen, temperature, lung functions and more – with a high level of accuracy.

"Over the last two years, we have focused our efforts on coming up with a technologically advanced yet easy-to-use tool to help you monitor health and facilitate better lifestyle choices," said Hamish Patel, founder and CEO at Azoi. "We are proud to introduce Wello - a not so small engineering feat in microelectronics, nanosensors, imaging, data analytics and design, that we hope will make a big difference in helping the world become a healthier place. We have effectively put health monitoring equipment, typically in large form factors, into a highly convenient and accessible mobile phone case."

Wello slides onto a smartphone disguised as a case. You simply hold it for a few moments while hidden sensors take measurements and pass on gathered information to the Wello app. It also connects with other health and fitness devices such as pedometers and sleep trackers to help identify how different behaviors can affect one's bodily state.

Pricing and Availability
Wello is available for pre-order in the United States as well as Canada, China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and across the European Union. Through Azoi's referral program, every purchaser gets a unique URL to share and when a Wello is ordered using that URL they will get a $10 credit for up to 10 referrals.

In the United States, Wello retails for $199 and will ship in fall 2014 pending FDA approval.

This device works well as a case for iPhones because iPhones are mostly one-handed use. I think if one had to use two hands on the phone most of the time, the usability level and accuracy would probably be worse - like one if the ass-phones

I like the concept, but why a case if it's connected via bluetooth. If it works with attachments and they aren't connected to the phone either then a separate unit would be a much better function. I like it but cases are becoming a pain, not to say that attachments or accessories are any better.

Because if you had to plug it in it makes iPhone longer.

The second half of the spirometer-graph draws the other way (towards zero). Advertisement gone wrong ^^

This was an iPhone 6 idea.
