Golden, CO, December 21, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Microlife Medical Home Solutions, Inc. (MiMHS) launched MiHealthLog web-application for consumers who are interested in better managing their health and wellness.
“Self-monitoring is the single best health behavior an individual can use to improve their health. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that individuals who monitor their daily food intake and physical activity lose more weight and keep it off longer. In addition, individuals who monitor their health measurements (i.e., blood pressure, blood glucose, etc.) better manage their respective medical condition (i.e., hypertension, diabetes, etc.),” said Dr. Scott O. McDoniel, Director of Clinical Affairs for Microlife Medical Home Solutions, Inc. MiHealthLog provides users with a comprehensive online platform to self-monitor their food intake, physical activity levels, blood pressure and glucose, and other important health measurements.
Microlife Medical Home Solutions, Inc. partnered with Nutrihand, Inc. on the development and hosting of MiHealthLog. “MiHealthLog powered by Nutrihand and Microlife Medical Home Solutions WatchWT Program, BodyGem® and MedGem® indirect calorimeters are the perfect combination to help patients and clients lose and maintain a healthy weight. By combining an individualized nutrition program generated from providers who use WatchWT or BodyGem with the easy-to use MiHealthLog online program, health conscious users will have all the tools and support they need to be successful,” said Soraya Bittencourt, CEO of Nutrihand Inc.

Nutrihand leads the industry with program customization and is very well known within the nutrition and weight management profession.
