The company intends to use the funds to further develop its technologies.
Led by Shahid Azim, CEO and co-founder, Quanttus is advancing wearable technologies (developed by a team of experts from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Nike, Apple, IDEO and Massachusetts General Hospital) and devices integrating clinical-grade vital signs monitoring such as monitor lack of sleep, dehydration, high blood pressure, diabetes, and inactivity, and contextual analysis for people to understand their bodies and improve their health.
The platform includes:

– Applications that translate this data into real-time insights to help people make choices that improve their health.
