Got a Fitbit/Withings/iHealth and an iPhone? Want to Alpha?

Hey everyone! Quick announcement/opportunity for you guys!


Dr. Beiser's (who presented at our November meetup) company QualiaHealth is giving alpha access to a lucky few Chicagoans. As a thank-you, they're giving away a Nest and a Basis. You just need to have an iPhone and wear a Fitbit/Withings/iHealth device. Sign up here.


What is QualiaHealth?

Qualia is a Chicago-based startup (with contributions from both UofC and IIT iD) that is developing a healthcare platform to help people understand how their actions impact their health. They are working with providers to bring the benefits of sensor technology to people suffering from chronic disease, and are currently looking to get some initial data in the platform with people who already have the devices — QSers.

To learn more, check out this quick video: Qualia Overview Video


Join the Alpha Test

Qualia began the TechStars Accelerator program a few weeks ago and they’re now beginning to alpha test the platform. They're looking for enthusiastic QSers to test the platform for the next 30 days and get feedback on the experience of the app. Participants can expect to spend about 5 minutes a day answering questions about their quality of life. In return for your time, they will give daily feedback via the app about how your actions impact your health.


Win Cool Sensors

In addition, at the end of the 30 day period, they'll be giving away a few awesome QS gifts as a huge thank you for helping out:

  • a Nest Thermostat for the most engaged user
  • a Basis watch for a randomly chosen participant
  • a huge hug and lots of appreciation


Interested in Joining the Alpha?

Awesome! Can you answer yes to these four questions:

  • Do you use a Fitbit, Withings, or iHealth device on a consistent basis?
  • Do you use an iPhone?
  • Are you willing to use the app for about 5 minutes each day for one month?
  • Are you willing to give us feedback about your experience with the app?


If yes, sign up here.



If you have questions or concerns, you can reach out to Kevin (the CEO) directly: [address removed].

You can also respond to me directly if you think there's anything I can answer myself.
