The Athelas Remote Patient Monitoring Weight Scale is a remote-connected device that is ready to use directly out of the box. The weight scale is used by hundreds of patients across the country.
How it works
Our weight scales are ready-to-use out of box. To record a measurement, users simply have to step on the scale. When the reading is taken, the SIM-enabled device transmits data wirelessly without any action required of the patient. Doctors and patients can view the readings in their Athelas web portals.
The remote patient monitoring (RPM) weight scale helps patients take greater ownership of their health journey. The Athelas patient-app
allows patients to track weight loss, while daily text reminders help ensure patients record their weight consistently.More specifically, patients enrolled in Athelas RPM use the Athelas RPM Scale to:
• Track progress on their weight loss journey automatically via the Athelas Patient App
• Provide accurate body weight readings and trends to their physician to better individualize their treatment plans, and
• Prioritize preventive treatment with coaching and monitoring provided by Athelas’s nurse team
The Athelas Nursing Team reviews readings and escalates any pressing cases to the patient's physician.
RPM data allows them to detect multiple weight-related issues – including congestive heart failure
– that left untreated can lead to acute health crises.
To date, the nurse team has reviewed thousands of patients’ cases and escalated hundreds of out-of-range readings to physicians for further investigation.
, US obesity prevalence was 42.4% in 2017-2018. Athelas’s remote monitoring program can help with obesity management and prevention.
For doctors, remote weight measurements can complement in-person measurements (such as body fat percentage) to give a comprehensive view of a patient's condition.
For patients, the RPM weight scale can be used to conveniently monitor weight loss. It serves as an ideal first-line tracking tool in preventing weight-related diseases.
In addition to obesity, The American Heart Association
outlines several chronic diseases that remote monitoring of weight can help manage, including hypertension, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation.
