Withings Enters Indian Market, Aims to Tackle Cardiovascular Diseases

Withings announce its official availability in India, bringing innovative health solutions to help address the escalating rates of cardiovascular diseases epidemic in the country. Withings acknowledges the significant potential in India, evident from its population of 1.4 billion people with a prevalence of cardiovascular diseases with associated risk factors including hypertension, obesity and diabetes.

Unveiling the Health Crisis: A Deep Dive into Chronic Diseases in India

Recent health statistics from various medical sources, including The Lancet, highlight the severity of the situation. 70% of India's urban population is classified as obese. India ranks third, just after the USA and China in the list of the ten countries with highest obesity prevalence. About 41,73% of adults and  the elderly population in India  suffer from at least one chronic disease, with 68% of all chronic diseases being attributed to hypertension and diabetes.

The hypertension graph for India reveals a staggering patient pool of 250 million individuals. Unfortunately, almost 100 million patients have been diagnosed with the disease but remain untreated. This alarming statistic emphasizes the need for accessible and effective healthcare solutions.

Furthermore, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are an estimated 77 million people above the age of 18 in India suffering from diabetes (type 2), with an additional 25 million classified as prediabetics. Shockingly, more than 50% of these individuals are unaware of their diabetic status, leading to potentially severe health complications if not detected and treated early. 

Withings brings powerful health scans to help address this alarming situation

Withings responds to concerning health trends by introducing innovative health technology solutions in India. Collaborating with top hospitals, universities, and renowned institutions, Withings aims to empower individuals to actively monitor and enhance their health. Through accessible connected devices like watches, scales, and blood pressure monitors, Withings democratizes health monitoring.
