STOCKHOLM 2018-08-15. Coala Life announced today that it has been named “Cool Vendor 2018” by Gartner Inc, the world's leading research and advisory company. The announcement is made within the market of Health and Wellness Devices and Coala is joined by four other impressive US and UK-based companies.

-It is an honor to be named Gartner “Cool Vendor”, said Philip Siberg, co-founder and CEO of Coala Life. Gartner is the world's leading research and advisory company and their designation validates our mission and commitment to develop solutions that help win the battle against the leading cause of death. We join an exclusive club of companies, of which many Cool Vendors have scaled up to become global leaders.

The announcement is based on the August 13, 2018 report, titled “Cool Vendors in Health and Wellness Devices, 2018” by David Glenn et al. at Gartner Inc. The report evaluates interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services in the health and wellness market. The Gartner Cool Vendor 2018 report summarizes that health and wellness devices provide valuable data for personal self-awareness and healthcare professionals. Technology product marketers in the health and wellness ecosystem should expand their device sales channels to target nonclinical healthcare-related providers.

  • Innovative — enables users to do things they couldn't do before

About Coala Life

Hjärt- och kärlsjukdomar är en av de främsta anledningar till att människor dör världen över. Anledningen är i många fall en sen diagnos. Coala Life bildades 2004 av läkare och svenska entreprenörer för att ändra på det. Nu är resultatet här. Genom att ersätta ett analogt verktyg från 1800-talet, stetoskopet, med en digital lösning som både registrerar hjärtljud, EKG och hjärtfrekvens. En unik lösning som både lyssnar, mäter och analyserar, och som möjliggör att många hjärtsjukdomar kan upptäckas och behandlas i tid. Bland annat förmaksflimmer som ökar risken för stroke betydligt. En rad patent ligger till grund för detta svenska världsunika system, Coala, som gör det möjligt för var och en att själv screena och följa sitt hjärta, i tät kontakt med läkare och kardiologer.
