Rock Health will be at the Apple Store San Francisco

Author: Thuc Huynh, MD

Rock Health was the first organization to nurture and grow health technology startups.  Startups receive $100,000 in investment funds and an immense amount of mentoring from successful business entrepneurs.  They're like Y Combinator but for Health only.

This December 4th at 7pm, Rock Health will be at the Apple Store in San Francisco along with several of their Startups from their current program to demo their latest projects.  It's a great way to get a sneak peek without attending the Rock health Demo Day or paying for a conference.

Here are the startups who will be attending :

Nephrosity - shares medical images on the iPad, giving doctors collaborative access to medical images anywhere, anytime.

Skimble - powers the mobile wellness movement with a cross-platform ecosystem of fun, dynamic, and social coaching applications.


Wello - is making the world a healthier place by making fitness more accessible, affordable, and accountable.

Wildflower Health - is making pregnancy healthier, safe, and lower cost through a mobile health platform and predictive analytics.

Zipongo - helps people find healthy foods within their budget, and provides rewards that improve the nutritional quality of what they buy.

BitGym - thinks you should be using video games to exercise.  Their patent pending technology uses an iPad to turn any cardio machine into an interactive gaming experience.
