Slow Control Launches Indiegogo Campaign for First-Ever Smart Baby Bottle


Paris (PRWEB) March 25, 2015

Slow Control, a global leader in connected devices for food intake monitoring, announced today that its latest innovation, Baby Gigl, a smart baby bottle holder, is now available for presale through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. The campaign will run March 24 – May 3.

The new connected smart bottle from Slow Control collects and analyzes data on food intake, feeding speed, lumps and bottle angle. Baby Gigl will alert parents and other caregivers if the bottle angle is producing too many bubbles or if lumps become present, impeding the flow while feeding. These alerts coach parents, nannies, and family members while feeding a baby, making them aware of common follies that cause colic or spit up.

“We understand that new parents face a lot of unknowns, wondering what’s normal, and they begin to doubt if the child is eating too much or too little,” said Jacques Lépine, founder and CEO of Slow Control. “We have worked to develop a practical solution to monitor, share, and correct habits that affect the child’s health. Baby Gigl technology is designed to help parents adjust behaviors, ultimately offering peace of mind.”

Baby Gigl’s collected data is sent to an accompanying smartphone app and baby diary. Using Slow Control’s proprietary Cross-Sharing Technology, parents can easily organize information collected by Baby Gigl and share it with other caregivers and pediatricians. When away from their baby, the bottle holder sends messages via text or email, notifying parents of feedings given by a caretaker.

Slow Control’s Cross-Sharing Technology uses a Bluetooth connection, with a Bluetooth shield function. This function allows the disabling of the Bluetooth signal when the bottle is placed in the Baby Gigl holder. This function prevents the transmission of any Bluetooth signals while the bottle holder is in use.

The 40-day campaign offers a total of 12 perk options to preorder Baby Gigl in a variety of colors, with a goal to raise $ 80,000. Early birds can preorder one Baby Gigl smart bottle holder for $ 75, two for $ 149, and three for $ 219; prices increase after the first 199 perks are claimed. Additional perk options are available for larger bundles and retailers. All products will be shipped September 2015.

New Creation Behavioral Healthcare Foundation Launches Website

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, California (PRWEB) March 18, 2015

New Creation Behavioral Healthcare Foundation has launched a website to guide viewers through the educational and financial resources available for its Christian-based addiction recovery treatment. Visitors to the website can navigate from desktop or mobile devices to discover how to support the organization and to learn about recovery programs it provides. Designed with bold visual elements, the website focuses on the organization’s commitment to helping people who suffer from the disease of addiction to find a new way of life. A large visual on the home page showing a group gathered in prayer brings New Creation’s Christian values to the forefront. In order to provide an optimal user experience, the design keeps the navigation, logo and phone number easily visible on each page. As the organization continues to grow, the website will keep up to date with events, such as fundraisers and other opportunities for giving.

The website includes blogs that address questions and concerns about addiction, including the thoughts and feelings experienced by substance abusers and their loved ones. The blogs also provide educational information about topics such as depression in recovery and how Obamacare impacts substance abuse treatment. The site also provides a link to the New Creation Behavioral Healthcare Facebook page where readers can browse through inspirational quotations and find links to articles about topics such as meditation, how to improve sleeping patterns, and interviews with people in recovery.

New Creation’s non-profit programs include addiction education and treatment. The founders, who are committed to Christian-based recovery, have more than 20 years of personal and professional experience. They have geared their program to offering judgment-free help and financial assistance to people with a sincere desire to change their lives from dependence on alcohol and drugs to dependence on a God-centered way of life. Funds for financial aid come from fundraisers, grants and private donations. Scholarship applicants are screened and interviewed for appropriate placement.

“We know that at some point, people who are abusing drugs and alcohol reach a point of desperation,” said Glenn Swanson, CEO of New Creation. “We want to meet them at that point. We want to assure them that we want to help them begin their healing process as quickly as possible. When alcoholics and addicts realize that they cannot find relief on their own, they can turn to us. We provide individually designed solutions for recovery based on each person’s needs. As our clients recover their physical health, mental faculties, emotional well being and spiritual fitness, they leave behind the chaos and despair of addiction. We give them compassionate care and faith-based solutions.”
