This product is called ‘Fitcare’ and it is a band-type small device with application so it can be used on all smartphones with Android OS. The device has stress relieving function and bound-free quick and health diet effect.

The principle of the device is to analyze DNA and pulse of the user through sensor and to show optimized breathing method for each individual through LCD screen; therefore, the user will dramatically reduce stress by following this breathing instruction and will be able to have a deep-sleep if the device is used for 10 minutes before going to bed.

Also, since the design is based on the medical clinical data and SCI-class research papers, this product is good enough to be introduced at international medical device exhibitions or medical science seminars.

We’ve focused on our research for 2 years with a belief that a real diet should reduce weights without stress and be rebound-free and with the supports from the world-class designer Denian Kim and Ministry of Knowledge Economy’s Smardi Project Team, we were able to introduce this product to the world.”
