Gruve Affiliate Program Now Includes Health Insurance Companies and Health and Wellness Companies

Personal Medical Records Provider, Connectyx Technologies, Joins Gruve Affiliate Program

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - Connectyx Technologies (PINKSHEETS: CTYX) -- Gruve Technologies, Inc. a leading provider of scientifically-proven health and weight loss products, expands the Gruve Affiliate Program to include health Insurance companies and health and wellness companies to reach and educate more people on N.E.A.T. (non-exercise activity thermogenesis), the foundation to long term weight loss that is only available in the Gruve®.

N.E.A.T. is all the calories someone burns while doing (non-exercise) daily activity. Scientific research over 10 years has found that increasing the N.E.A.T. in daily life burns more calories than short term intense exercise due to whole body movements and much longer duration and that is the key for sustainable weight loss and a dramatic improvement in overall health

The Gruve Affiliate Program was originally created for select health professionals (e.g. doctors specializing in fields like obesity, diabetes and cardiology), and health and wellness educators (e.g. registered dietitians). Because of demand, the popular program has been expanded to include health insurance companies and health and wellness companies. Innovative health insurance companies, like SeeChange Health (, can now offer the benefits of better health through the Gruve to their members and member companies. Research has shown repeatedly that employer-sponsored wellness programs can help companies lower healthcare costs, increase productivity and decrease absenteeism due to health issues. In addition, health and wellness companies can offer the benefits of the Gruve N.E.A.T. activity monitor as an additional health and wellness offering at a great price to their customers.

Gruve is pleased to announce that Connectyx Technologies Holding Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CTYX) has joined the Gruve Affiliate Program. Connectyx is the creator of MedFlash (, a health and wellness maintenance membership that provides discounted health and wellness benefits and services, and that provides, through its MedFlash device, four methods of allowing a first responder, healthcare professional or family member, access to a member's health information that is 100% controlled by the member.

"We are proud to be able to offer the Gruve Solution to provide better health to our MedFlash members. We are committed to constantly evaluating and securing the best health and wellness services and products that we can offer at a great value to our expanding membership," says Ronn Schuman, President and CEO, Connectyx Technologies Holdings Group, Inc.

"We believe that as more and more people are educated about the landmark concept of N.E.A.T. and its many health benefits, more and more insurance companies and health and wellness providers will want to offer the benefits of the Gruve to their members to enhance their personal health and save money. We are happy to work with Connectyx to achieve this goal," says Dr. Robert Gauthier, CEO, Gruve Technologies, Inc.

The Gruve® is a total body motion activity monitor that incorporates the proven N.E.A.T. medical standard for weight loss and it is unique in the market place -- no other activity monitor can provide real-time information on daily N.E.A.T. activity nor are they even accurate enough to measure N.E.A.T. activity. The Gruve accurately measures 98% daily N.E.A.T. activity.
