Abu Dhabi-based International Holding Company’s (IHC) subsidiary Multiply Holding is planning to launch an online wellness and prevention platform called ‘HealthyU’ in the UAE.
According to the company statement, the platform intends to improve users’ wellness by providing online consultations with specialists in areas such as sleep health, fitness, nutrition, and mental well-being. Furthermore, the HealthyU platform will offer customers access to advanced diagnostic services at labs throughout the UAE.
As per the statements, the move to launch HealthyU adds preventative health to IHC’s portfolio and “complements its existing healthcare businesses, which include investments in Oxford Nanopore Technologies, Tamouh Healthcare, and Quantlase Lab.”
The platform is being developed in collaboration with G42 Healthcare, an Abu Dhabi-based health tech company, and global partners Weill Cornell Wellness, Cardiovascular Preventative Medicine in New York, and a Zurich-based private wellness clinic.
“Multiply, an Abu Dhabi-based holding with more than 15 years of experience, is expanding its investments and business operations into tech-focused and fast-growing industries based on disruptive technologies. We’ve identified a particularly growing demand in the wellness and preventative health industries, especially in consumer-friendly digital solutions. The global pandemic has heightened health awareness among the already highly digital-savvy UAE population. To serve this demand, our teams and partners in Abu Dhabi, Zurich, and New York have built an incredible platform in HealthyU to offer personalized, precise, and predictive solutions, which we look forward to bringing to the market.”
Lara Itani, Project Manager at HealthyU said, “Digital opportunities and innovations in the field of wellness and longevity are increasingly taking center stage. The platform will provide “tremendous value to its users as it will offer access to personalized plans, programs and tips that help increase energy, mental alertness, productivity, immunity, and overall well-being.”
“HealthyU has not launched its pilot phase yet but will be available for users through Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store in the second half of this year,” the statement added.
