The Slimming Clinic and Qardio launch new UK remote monitoring weight loss initiative
Qardio and The Slimming Clinic announce a new partnership to help hundreds of people in the UK lose weight.
Doctors at The Slimming Clinic can now view patient information remotely by using Qardio’s monitoring platform and medical devices. Data, such as blood pressure readings and body fat percentage, will help doctors to create more personalised diet plans, leading to improved overall health and weight loss for patients.
Dr Charlotte Norton, Medical Director, The Slimming Clinic, said: “Teaming up with Qardio gives our doctors access to rich data without the need for a face-to-face appointment. This means their advice can be tailored to the individual, backed by science.
“Because of Covid we’ve adapted our approach to make sure we’re still providing the best care for our patients, while keeping them safe. By using Qardio devices, our patients can measure body fat percentage, muscle mass and bone density, as well as blood pressure, from the comfort of their home.”
Mark Prince, CEO, Qardio, said: “We’re very happy to be working alongside The Slimming Clinic to help people in the UK lose weight and improve their overall health.
“Qardio’s remote monitoring solution means people can stay safe at home, while continuing their weight loss journey better informed than ever before. Our devices are discrete and easy to use, with minimum disruption to the patient’s daily life, meaning clinicians can gather data easily and give guidance specific to that patients’ need.”
The Slimming Clinic will be using Qardio technology across two of its weight loss programmes.
The Slimming Clinic has been helping their patients achieve weight loss goals for over 30 years. Their new programmes Transform and i-Change include regular remote appointments with their specialist team of medical practitioners, Qardio Smart Blood Pressure Monitor and Qardio Smart Scales, full access to their online portal packed with diet advice and help and weight loss supplements. By linking their Qardio kit to the Qardio portal, doctors will have a real life view of their patients’ weight loss journey.
