Scope

 

More and more people feel insecure in today's increasingly mobile world. Bosch Healthcare Solutions therefore wanted to create a mobile health service that leverages their extensive hardware expertise and existing infrastructure.

IXDS was asked to be their research, concept and design partner. Together, we created Vivatar, an innovative and highly simplified mobile aid solution for active people around the world.

The next release of Lifebuddy is on its way and expanding to a service ecosystem. We will keep you posted!

Impact

 

The smartphone and smartwatch app connects users to a Bosch call center with one tap, 24/7. Main USPs include the GPS localization of the person in need and the automatic transfer of relevant health data. Both of which help save people's lives.

Vivatar was released to the public in 2017. It received a lot of positive feedback in the press including “App of the Month” by Germany’s largest computer magazine ComputerBild.
