Hoana Partners with Automotive Seat Manufacturer Faurecia to Introduce “Active Wellness™” at Auto Shanghai 2015
Honolulu, HI, April 29, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Hoana Medical, Inc., a leading medical technology company based out of Honolulu, HI, is partnering with top tier OEM automotive seating manufacturer, Faurecia Worldwide (EO:Euronext Paris), to present the Active Wellness™ seat at Auto Shanghai, Asia’s premier automotive showcase for car makers and manufacturing technology; taking place in Shanghai, China on April. 22-29, 2015.

Utilizing Hoana’s state-of-art sensor technology and advanced proprietary algorithms, the Active Wellness™ seat is the first of its kind prototype, designed to better connect a vehicle to the driver. The seat invisibly monitors the driver’s physiological information and instantaneously translates these invisible “driver demands” to changes in the cockpit environment, culminating in a more comfortable experience. It is the world’s first vehicle seating system that not only detects the physical and mental status of occupants but also invokes countermeasures to restore travelers to a healthy driving condition.

About Hoana Medical, Inc.
Launched in 2002, Hoana is the world’s leading healthcare company focused on “Intelligent Medical Vigilance.” A spinout of Hawaii’s preeminent technology firm, Oceanit (www.oceanit.com), Hoana originally created its sensing technology for the U.S. Department of Defense but soon turned its focus to address the problem of unnoticed critical events which often lead to increased medical complications and even death for patients in acute care hospitals. Designed for effective and inexpensive healthcare delivery, the company’s first U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared offering, the LifeBed I, transforms any hospital bed into a medical vigilance system, capable of accurately tracking a patient’s vital signs without any wires, leads or connections. Hoana has plans to expand beyond the acute care hospital environment into nursing home and home care as well as consumer-focused general wellness technology with its second generation system which will contain the same robust technology as the first version at a very affordable price. Hoana is headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii. For more information, please visit http://www.hoana.com/.
