ACAP Health and Fullpower Announce MotionX®-MUV Solution for the Healthcare Industry

Cloud-based BYOD Solution Offers Incentives for Users to Transition to a More Active Lifestyle

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - October 13, 2015) - ACAP Health and Fullpower Technologies introduced today MotionX®-MÜV, a new, cloud-based solution for employers to encourage less sedentary behavior and a more healthy, active lifestyle for employees. The partnership between Fullpower and ACAP Health creates a unique opportunity in the healthcare industry to lower cost and improve long-term employee well-being with natural and meaningful incentives. The MotionX-BYOD integration supporting iPhone, Apple Watch, Fitbit, Android and Jawbone makes corporate adoption a no-brainer.

MotionX®-MÜV is a new cloud-based solution developed by Fullpower Technologies of Silicon Valley and marketed to the healthcare industry by ACAP Health. The MotionX®-MÜV mission is to help employers create an office mentality focused on improved health and activity by offering a fun, activity solution with real incentives and rewards that is based on the most recent clinical science.

"Most people are familiar with public health recommendations to complete physical activity each week," said Tim Church, M.D., Ph.D, M.P.H, Chief Medical Officer at ACAP Health and one of the country's leading physicians in exercise and obesity research. "However, what many people don't know is that research also shows that leisure physical activity can't compensate for high amounts of sitting. Extended sitting is strongly associated with the risk of mortality."

"Fullpower looked for innovative partners in the healthcare industry for our MotionX®-MÜV cloud-based solution, and the ACAP Health team jumped out," said Philippe Kahn, CEO and founder of Fullpower-MotionX. "The MotionX-MÜV cloud-based solution is based on what we learned from data-science collected from our patented advanced machine methodologies applied to over 250 million days of activity and nights of sleep. The science told us that Ms. and Mr. Everyone perform best when they focus on three modalities: M for Moving often, at least every hour; Ü for Units of daily activity or steps, take at least 7,000 steps a day; and V for Vigor in daily steps, aim for 30 minutes of vigorous walking spread out through the day."

Powered by MotionX®, the cloud-based MotionX®-MÜV solution delivers BYOD by supporting iPhones or Android, the Apple Watch and leading trackers such as Fitbit and Jawbone. This flexibility allows organizations to get started immediately in the most cost effective way.
