At CES 2024, Withings, a leading global innovator in connected health solutions, unveiled BeamO, a groundbreaking 4-in-1 health assessment device. This cutting-edge "multiscope" allows you to monitor crucial health metrics, traditionally measured during medical appointments, right at your fingertips. Upon receiving FDA Clearance, BeamO will soon be available in the United States, introducing an unprecedented combination of ECG, oximeter, stethoscope, and thermometer sensors. This compact and portable device, smaller than a smartphone, redefines the conventional thermometer, empowering individuals and families to conduct convenient at-home health checkups and significantly enhancing the quality of telehealth consultations.

"BeamO is a transformative multiscope device. Once, body temperature was the only health scan routinely taken at home. BeamO will revolutionize the measurement of the core vitals carried out during medical visits from the comfort of one's home. This crucial data will provide a vital overview of overall health or warning signs of potential areas of concern. Instead of measuring these stats a couple of times a year in a clinical setting, it will be possible to assess them every day." Said Eric Carreel, Founder and President of Withings. "BeamO will be the future thermometer, providing the ability to assess temperature and observe the state of the heart and lungs."

"Post-pandemic telemedicine is commonplace. While convenient and cost-effective, remote visits lack the ability for health professionals to carry out the routine checks they perform in person. BeamO will make this possible remotely with a device that combines the functionality of four different pieces of medical equipment." Carreel continued. Powerful Health Scan Powered by Multiscope AnalysisBeamO is packed with sensors that beam light waves to interpret blood flow patterns, temperature, and acoustic information. It performs multiple functions in one handheld device:

  • Hand to Heart: Photoplethysmography (PPG) and electrodes along its sides allow BeamO to simultaneously perform blood oxygenation (SpO2) and heart rate readings while conducting a medical-grade 1-lead ECG. A simple light grip of BeamO initiates measurements that users can view in real-time on its animated colored LED display.
  • Raising the Temperature: BeamO conducts accurate and stable core body temperature readings with a noninvasive temporal artery scan. An advancement on the Withings Thermo sensor technology, the second-generation hotspot sensor is a mono-element thermophile that narrows the focal area of the infrared beam for contactless measurements. This increases the scan's sensitivity, making it more robust to changes in distance from the skin or movement.
  • Hearing Health: A cutting-edge digital stethoscope, BeamO captures chest or back acoustic soundwaves through a Piezoelectric disc. With intuitive tutorials, users achieve precise heart and lung measurements. Equipped with a USB-C to jack adapter, results can be heard through headphones and seamlessly transferred, stored, and shared in the app. During telehealth sessions, audio streaming enables physicians to guide device placement and focus on specific areas of interest.

With these capabilities, BeamO will conduct a 4-in-1 health checkup of body temperature, heart, and lung health in under a minute. It will be able to alert users to possible fever and infection and detect potential cardiovascular issues, including atrial fibrillation (AfiB) (following FDA clearance), one of the most prevalent forms of arrhythmias, and provide alerts in case heart rates are abnormal.

A Complete Health Record, Secured

By automatically syncing with the Withings app through Wi-Fi, BeamO creates comprehensive health records over time. To better track individual and family health journeys, Withings also introduces new capabilities within the Withings App for BeamO and its entire family of connected health products.

It makes it even easier to track health stats that can be recorded and shared over time. With the Withings app, users can view their entire history of health readings along with interpretations of their meanings and actionable advice. Family medical health history can also be uploaded and, where necessary, shared with physicians and other family members. It also allows multiple family members to create individual profiles to use and share Withings devices.

In addition, for the first time, the Withings App allows users to upload details of any medications they are taking, set alerts and reminders to administer at the appropriate times, and log usage and side effects that can be shared with doctors to manage dosage and effectiveness.
