[이데일리 김새미 기자] Healthcare startup Algocare announced on the 20th that it has officially launched ‘Algocare at Work’, a nutrition management service for companies.
Algocare at Work is a service that provides customized nutrition management in office space based on Algocare’s self-developed nutrition management solution ‘NaaS (Nutrition-as-a-Service)’. Nars consists of Algocare AI, Algocare Nutrition Engine, Algocare Nutrition Bottle, and Algocare App.
The service is implemented in a way that Algocare’s healthcare artificial intelligence (AI) analyzes the user’s health condition, calculates the necessary nutrients and dosage, and provides the dispenser with a combination of nutrients in real time. Users can manage the dispenser and track and manage their own health status through the mobile app.
Algocare AI is a healthcare AI developed after 3 years of research by Algocare. A total of 3,000 related papers were reviewed, 50,000 drugs were analyzed, and more than 7,000 test subjects were considered. Algocare Nutrition Engine is a nutritional supplement dispenser that provides a combination of customized nutritional supplements. The Algocare Nutrition Bottle is a cartridge containing premium nutrients made smaller than 4mm. The cartridge, with 10 types of products currently on the market, contains 27 single ingredients. The Algocare app is a mobile app that integrates and manages data.
Along with the launch of Algocare at Work, Algocare also launched ‘Algocare Nutrition Engine Pro 1’, a new version of the existing nutrient dispenser. Algocare is a company that has won the CES Innovation Award for three consecutive years for its nutritional supplement dispenser. Algocare plans to introduce a new version of the dispenser and introduce a more advanced service in the recently launched Algocare at Walk.
Jeong Ji-won, CEO of Algocare, said, “Due to the nature of modern people’s eating habits, most office workers consume more calories than the standard and do not receive sufficient nutrients.” We will help you receive personalized nutrition management.”
Meanwhile, Algocare is an AI-based healthcare startup founded in 2019 by Jeong Ji-won, a lawyer who graduated from Seoul National University Law School and Seoul National University Law School. Earlier this year, Algocare sparked controversy over idea theft when it claimed that Lotte Healthcare’s nutritional supplement dispenser ‘Pilkey’ copied its product.
