Satellite & sun exposure: SMS Teleport supports siHealth & NHS clinical trial
Satellite Mediaport Services Ltd. (SMS Teleport) is providing essential teleport services supporting siHealth Ltd.’s clinical trial with the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), evaluating the Sun4Health Mobile App, a digital platform for monitoring healthy sun exposure and vitamin D.
The Sun4Health Mobile App utilises siHealth’s satellite-based HappySun Technology to enable users to best balance sun exposure to avoid vitamin D deficiency and the associated risks of sunlight, such as sunburn.
Teleport services provided by SMS enable siHealth to access the necessary satellite data required for the Sun4Health Mobile App’s functionality, which monitors ground level solar radiation.
“Once again, SMS Teleport is privileged to support siHealth’s important clinical trial with the UK’s National Health Service,” stated Zvi Golod, CEO of SMS Teleport. “Utilisation of space-based technologies in healthcare is incredibly exciting. We look forward to seeing the results of the NHS trial and indeed, the impact of siHealth’s products on the future of healthcare.”
“Sun4Health clinical trial is seeking to make a real change in public health awareness. The phone app allows people to opitimise personal vitamin D levels thanks to sun exposure awareness and personalised life-style habits while simultaneously warning of over-exposure to sunlight,” commented Emilio Simeone, CEO of siHealth. “Together with SMS Teleport we are bridging the exciting frontier between satellite, smartphone apps and healthcare.”
