HELO Smart Wristband Review
This new innovative product is distributed by Wor(l)d Global Distribution Network. The company claims it uses a technology, apparently from Toshiba.

• ECG/EKG (Electrocardiogram)
• Blood Pressure
• Mood Sensor
• Fatigue Sensor
• Remote monitoring of other people’s vital signs
• Provides emergency SOS GPS location for everyone in your family
• A Panic button, with GPS location coordinates
• Mood Analysis (emotions)
• Fatigue/Energy Analysis
• Stress Levels
Reason to believe
• Uses Germanium semiconductor stone plates
• With anti-oxidizing Himalayan Salt stone plates
• Toshiba’s ApP Lite Technology
This state of the art health wristband incorporates Toshiba’s ApP Lite™ (Application Processor Lite) advanced chipset technology from Toshiba Corporation’s Storage & Electronic Devices Solutions Company (“Toshiba”).
99% Pure Germanium Stone Plates
Germanium is commonly used as a semiconductor. It is used in integrated electronic circuitry and transistors. Some Germanium compounds are anti-bacterial. They are toxic to bacteria, but harmless to mammals. The HELO uses Germanium to facilitate the transfer of ionic charges. HELO’s wearable stone technology improves blood circulation by increasing the oxygen level in your blood.
HELO Germanium Plates are designed to increase the health benefits of the HELO wristband by adding a natural antioxidant. Germanium (GE) is a naturally occurring element appearing in spot 32 on the Periodic Table. Germanium also has the same active ingredients that can also be found in fungi, in plants such as ginseng, aloe or garlic.
The Far Infrared Rays (FIR) activate water molecules in the body’s cells, thus enhancing oxygen distribution in the blood stream. Improved oxygenated blood circulation helps the body to relax. Higher blood oxygenation promotes healing. This leads to a more restful and better quality of sleep.
Himalayan Salt Stone
Working on the same principle as a Himalayan salt lamp works, Pink Himalayan salt crystals neutralize and purify the body from positive ionic discharges released by electronic devices. This positive to negative ion displacement helps to create mood boosting effects to dispel depression and low energy.
HELO Himalayan Salt Plates are designed to increase the health benefits of the HELO wristband. Himalayan Salt contains the same 84 natural minerals and elements found in the human body. Our skin tries to absorb everything it comes in contact with, so why not try to have something good on it.
Using SMS technology, coupled with Google Maps downloaded to your Smartphone, the HELO will automatically notify your loved ones to let them know you need immediate assistance. Notification is by a phone call and by an SMS message. (SMS is the abbreviation for “Short Message Service”, also known as a text message).
Via the Toshiba ApP Lite™ chipset technology, the exact GPS coordinates of your location are provided to your loved one via Blue Tooth technology from your HELO to your phone, and from your phone to the cell phone tower.
Once received by your loved one, he or she can then give the exact GPS coordinates to law enforcement, emergency medical teams (EMTs) or call a close neighbor to immediately come check on you or your loved one.
• Hypo-Allergenic Silicone Wristband
• Removable Titanium plates are integrally positioned into the HELO’s patented hypo-allergenic silicon band. The patented clip-on plate system contains slots for its natural mineral stone plates. Simply place your stone plates in whichever slot is the most comfortable for you.
• Senior or aging parents
• Child Health
• Mentally Challenged
Monitor a loved one who is mentally challenged with Alzheimer’s, dementia, a child with Down’s Syndrome, or others with cognitive mental health challenges. You will be able to view not only their vital signs, but via BlueTooth technology, the HELO also provides you with your loved one’s GPS coordinate location, should they become confused, lost, or unable to find their way home. All they need to do is push their Panic Button (twice). The smart band alerts whichever primary emergency contact(s) you specify via SMS and an e-mail with your exact GPS location.

Does it really work?
The company and its product is relatively a new player in this field. World Tech Distribution (such as those in Canada or Philippines) are not the direct manufacturer but uses an OEM product. They distribute the product through other individual sellers, by means of multi-level but direct marketing.
As of the writing of this article, there are not enough independent testimonies if HELO wristband really works. This technology is also available to other wrist gear, being lead by Samsung Gear, Garmin, and even luxury watches like Tag Heuer. However, the other claims of HELO wristband are unique to date.
We cannot say it works as of the moment because it is relatively new in the market. But it’s just a matter of time when Apple and Samsung gear watches come out with similar if not better wristwatch with medical features.
