A Hull health-tech business has launched what it claims to be the world’s first connected platform for workforces.
Yodha, from Latus Health, aims to bring a new solution to the corporate sector, with innovative thinking at the heart.
And it is seen as a key tool in ambitious growth plans for the business to quadruple over the next 18 months, with 100 new jobs already outlined.
Coming online as the new year dawned and attention turned to wellness post festivities, Latus is led by two former professional rugby league players and their former Royal Marine brother.
Jack, Sam and Will Latus head up the Melton business, building on entrepreneurial fitness inroads post early sporting and forces careers.
Managing director, Jack, said: “We designed Yodha with no limits to the support we provide. “Our mission was to create a single wellbeing programme, that all businesses, no matter where in the world they are, can offer to every employee and it will provide a truly unique wellbeing experience for each employee based on their individual needs.”
Yodha is described as an innovative platform providing employees with a cost-effective wellbeing programme which accounts for all of the individual wellbeing needs of a diverse workforce.
Jack said: “The healthcare industry as a whole, has made gigantic leaps in embracing technology to improve access to care, but occupational health has been slow to follow suit.
“Yodha provides employees with integrated healthcare and wellbeing support for every employee, allowing employers to actively address the wellbeing needs of their workforce.
“The platform provides access to online GPs, physio and counselling as well as mental wellbeing resources, epigenetics testing and completely digital health surveillance.”
