Gravityeight, the Internet’s First Consumer Platform for Personalized Wellbeing, Announces Comprehensive Health Channel Partnership With Medhelp.Org

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 02, 2011

GravityEight.com, the web’s first integrated platform for personalized wellbeing, today announced that MedHelp.org, the world’s largest online health community and leading personal health platform, will anchor its health channel.

The new partnership serves as the first anchor alliance in GravityEight’s comprehensive channel strategy, which will pull together information and tools from leading companies in eight different categories of personalized wellbeing. With each wellbeing channel, GravityEight will partner with a top destination hub, supplemented by additional content and applications, to curate a unique mix of innovative tools and applications, giving users a comprehensive “best of breed” approach to monitoring and improving wellbeing.

GravityEight.com provides the public with continuously updated news, expert programming and lifestyle management tools, delivered through a highly personalized “wellbeing platform.” GravityEight enables users to measure, manage, and enhance eight essential areas of their lives, including health, finance, relationships, career, community, spirituality, learning, and leisure.

“MedHelp and GravityEight, through sharing and combining content, tools and applications, are giving new shape to the future of health monitoring platforms,” said David Wamsley, founder and CEO of Gravity Eight. “The general user will find our health channel to be a unique self-monitoring and self-improvement environment – an experience we are continuously striving to expand and will soon take across all eight of our lifestyle management channels.”

“One of our goals in providing a personal health platform is enabling application developers to plug into users’ health data and help them achieve their health goals,” said Khaled Hassounah, CTO of MedHelp. “We are excited about partnering with GravityEight because we believe it provides an effective approach to helping people make a real difference to their health based on all the data available to them.”

MedHelp, which has more than 12 million active monthly users, is a pioneer in the field of online consumer health information. In addition to its deep content repository, the site offers a unique suite of online and mobile tools and applications. MedHelp’s content and tools cover a wide variety of health conditions and wellness topics, from diabetes and heart disease to fitness and pregnancy, that enable individuals actively to manage their health.

MedHelp.org will provide top tools and applications for GravityEight’s health channel, which has already integrated other leading health monitoring devices, including Nike Plus™, the Withings Body Scale™, and the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach™. With the addition of MedHelp’s robust collection of 50 tools and applications, GravityEight’s health channel will immediately become the single largest centralized dashboard for health available on the Internet today.

“We’ve seen tremendous growth and development in the consumer Internet health space, but what’s novel about GravityEight is the way it is building a comprehensive and highly usable ‘personal dashboard,’” noted Ben Rubin, co-founder and CTO of ZEO, the leading consumer device company for sleep monitoring and measurement. “It’s like Mint.com, but for your entire life. Interestingly, we’ve seen no one else attempt such a bold move. We are big fans of GravityEight and have been a partner since Day One.”
