Since MobiHealthNews’ most recent roundup in June, at least eight more digital health and fitness crowdfunding campaigns have launched on Kickstarter. This time, many of the devices and apps focused on specializing in a specific fitness category. One campaign offered a platform specifically for triathletes to train for events, while another created a tool that is designed to track the movements that tennis players make on the court.
Although Kickstarter recently altered its requirements to further explain, among other things, which health-related campaigns were not allowed on the site, the ones that have launched since have shown which could make it past the new filters. They include a smartphone breathalyzer, headphones that measure heart rate and blood oxygen saturation, and an app that aims to support family caregivers.
Below are eight crowdfunding campaigns that have recently launched on Kickstarter.
