The inCORPUS®’ technology was born out of our frustration: not to be able to have a sensor able to alert us at any moment of either a slight decrease in our form or a risk of developing a disease. Not being sick does not equal being in good shape. It does not take much to avoid the worst. Knowing is key to prevent and heal.
It all started at the top of mount Ratna Chuli in Himalaya at 7128 meters of altitude. Fond of mountaineering & technology, Laurence Besse and famous doctor Emmanuel Cauchy – founder of IFREMONT Institute – built there an idea of e-health app available for all. Once back from their expedition, they convinced Professor Grégoire Millet and doctor Laurent Schmitt to partner up with them and they founded be.care SA on one scientific observation: the heart rate variability is an easily accessible, under-exploited, objective indicator of our energy.
After spending hundreds of hours analyzing and experimenting the inefficient, invasive and user-hostile market’s solution, we thought to ourselves: ”there has to be a better way”.
Professor Grégoire Millet and doctor Laurent Schmitt, renowned experts in performance science, have published more than 20 years’ worth of research and observations on the HRV analysis in the monitoring of elite athletes.
