Evaluation

Evolving from a manufacturer of weighing scales into a company that creates health for people. Having transformed itself into a lifestyle company, this corporation needed a comprehensive design strategy aimed at guiding people to better health and this product could become the basis of such a strategy. As a card-sized device far slimmer and lighter than anything previously available, this item can be combined with a variety of other card infrastructure, including employee ID cards, membership cards, and patient registration cards. The resultant potential for its use in medical care and health service and applications was highly praised.
