Hyderabad-based smart health startup Pulse Active Stations has been selected for Y Combinator’s Winter 2019 class. Y Combinator is a Silicon Valley incubator that runs two programs each year where it invests around $150K in them.  This year, over 12,000 startups applied for the Winter 2019 batch of which 200 companies were picked.

Pulse Active Stations is a connected network of smart health kiosks. This kiosk generates a report with over 21 body parameters and risk indicators for 12 lifestyle diseases. Pulse places these kiosks in public areas such as malls, hospitals, stations, etc. It is currently a part of Hyderabad-based startup engine T-Hub’s Lab32 program.

The body parameters that Pulse tests for includes physical dimensions such as height, weight, BMI, blood pressure, SPO2 and pulse rate with body composition analysis for body fat percentage, mineral content, muscle and bone strength and body water content.

Along with this it also looks at risk indicators for lifestyle disease such as Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, Cardiac issues and similar issues.

It then generates a report at a minimal charge and through a mobile app, it gives users a customised nutrition and workout plans based on their parameters.

As per Y Combinator, pulse has tested over 150,000 people in just one year to test for parameters such as heart rate, BMI, body composition and other vitals at their kiosks.

“They’re growing organically at 30% month over month. The majority of Indians do not have access to adequate healthcare. By locating Pulse kiosks in public spaces like train stations and malls, Pulse Active Stations is the first point of contact that 1.4bn Indians will have with healthcare services,” Y Combinator said on its website.

As part of this program, Pulse will spend 3 months in Silicon Valley, where it will work with the accelerator to refine its pitch to investors.

This year’s winter batch is Y Combinator’s largest batch yet, a 25% increase compared to the summer 2018 batch. The Demo Day for this batch is currently underway.
