These game-changing health startups are backed by Amazon
Back in 2015, Amazon introduced Amazon Launchpad, a program that showcased noteworthy startups and their products on the site. Launchpad would help up-and-coming companies with their order fulfillment and customer service, and all the products that were backed by Amazon would be available to shop on a dedicated portion of the site.
In about two years, Launchpad has helped 1,000 startups sell their goods to shoppers around the globe. It divides up their offerings into genres such as body, food, toys, gadgets and home. What’s great about shopping on Launchpad is that you can get your hands on some of the coolest up-and-coming products while still shopping within Amazon.
Some of our favorite finds on Amazon Launchpad are in the health space. There’s a slew of new fitness tracker offerings that can rival some of the more established brands, as well as smarter ways to track your sleep, check your blood pressure and even see your EKG.
To give you a taste of Amazon Launchpad’s healthy startups, we’ve rounded up nine products you might want to put on your radar.
Quell Wearable Pain Relief
Pain relief has become increasingly drug-free, thanks to the emergence of new technology like Quell. The company’s wearable pain relief starter kit is an FDA-approved device that taps into your body’s natural pain relief response to help those with arthritis, nerve, or leg and foot pain.
Quell is worn just above your knee and uses intensive nerve stimulation to block pain signals. Its signature OptiTherapy technology can then adjust the amount you’re receiving to help make sure you’re getting the most pain relief possible. Like most smart technology, the device can sync up to your tablet or smartphone via an integrated app as well as through Bluetooth technology.
There you can monitor your therapy sessions, adjust the intensity, and see trends in your pain relief over time, as well as track your sleep.
