CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - beBetter Health, Inc., a corporate wellness company providing comprehensive wellness solutions to employers, benefits brokers and consultants, announces that the beBetter® System now has built-in integration with FitLinxx activity monitoring devices for businesses.
The beBetter® System is a wellness platform that gives employees personalized wellness goals and delivers built-in employee wellness programs that promote exercise, nutrition, and weight management. Now, employees just clip the FitLinxx devices on their shoe or belt, and activity data will automatically and wirelessly transmit into the beBetter System, showing their progress toward physical activity goals.
"This integration makes it a lot easier for employees to participate in wellness," said Ralph Gaines, CEO of beBetter Health. "Benefits professionals and brokers can design a variety of programs that reward employees for literally taking active steps to a healthy lifestyle. Incentives based on steps, distance, time, or calories can be easily tied to premium reductions, HSA contributions or other incentive structures."
A key value of the FitLinxx devices is that they make data collection easy and automatic. "The employees don't have to manually track how much exercise they're getting," says Dave Monahan, President and CEO of FitLinxx. "This makes it much easier for them to participate. We're trying to eliminate the barriers that typically get in the way of collecting the reliable data you need to reward your employees. The devices provide accurate, objective data for goal progress, incentive rewards, and program evaluation."
