Withings WiFi Body Scale that imports body weight data directly into Gazelle now available

Quest Diagnostics and Withings announced that the Withings WiFi Body Scale, the world's first WiFi connected personal weight scale, can now automatically import body weight data directly into Gazelle™, the secure mobile health platform from Quest Diagnostics.  With Gazelle, users can electronically receive their Quest Diagnostics laboratory results and manage their personal health information directly from their Apple® iPhone, BlackBerry®, and soon, Google Android®, smartphones.  

The WiFi Body Scale automatically records the user's body weight and body mass index (BMI) and transmits the information to a secure webpage or to WiScale, Withings free iPhone application.  The scale can track up to eight users and each user has the ability to designate where they want their weight information to go when they step on the scale.  Also, if enabled by the user, the scale can automatically "Tweet" their information for feedback and motivation.

"We're pleased to bring to Gazelle the advanced capabilities of the Withings WiFi Body Scale, which helps patients better understand and manage their health by wirelessly tracking their weight and delivering their personal data into Gazelle," said Neil Desai, Gazelle Product Manager at Quest Diagnostics. "Over the coming months, we will continue to add additional capabilities from best-in-class partners as we expand and enhance the Gazelle Mobile Health platform."  

Introduced in October of 2010, Gazelle allows users to see, store and share their vital health information with ease and security while on the go.  For example, Gazelle allows a patient to receive their Quest Diagnostics lab results directly on their smartphone and, if they choose, conveniently share the results by e-mail or fax with their doctors and other health care providers.
