Welcome Home to Wellness: Delos Launches World’s First Residential Wellness Technology Platform

Del

Delos, the pioneer of wellness real estate and founder of the WELL Building Standard™, announced today the launch of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform — a groundbreaking offering designed to enhance health outcomes in the home and mitigate harmful indoor environmental concerns, utilizing Delos’ proprietary wellness algorithms and sensor technologies, to create spaces that help reduce stress, improve sleep quality, increase performance and enhance overall well-being.

“Despite most of human history spent outside, we now spend nearly 90% of our time indoors, and yet rarely focus on the impact the indoor environment can have on our health and well-being. Through extensive scientific research and real-world testing, we discovered that we can mitigate environmental triggers within our homes to enhance both physical and emotional well-being,” said Delos Chief Executive Officer and Founder Paul Scialla. “Delos’ DARWIN platform incorporates health and wellness features and technologies into the home to bring the benefits of natural outdoor conditions inside. We are excited to work with our global partners to introduce a new era of wellness technology into homes.”

Backed by over seven years of research, the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform focuses on four main components: air filtration, water purification, circadian lighting and comfort-focused technologies, all of which simulate the natural outdoor condition. Powered by Delos’ proprietary cloud-based algorithms, the dynamic platform interacts with an ecosystem of Delos approved products and solutions to bring wellness intelligence into the connected home environment. DARWIN is flexible and accessible, launching across all segments of the housing market, from mass market to luxury.

Delos is partnering with premier dealers, installers, builders and other stakeholders across the globe to integrate the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform into residences:

  • HTSA Network: Delos is training professionals throughout the United States to become accredited DARWIN dealers and installers.
  • Simonds Homes: Simonds, a leading volume home builder in Australia, will include DARWIN as part of its base package in all new homes in the state of Victoria beginning this month, setting a new baseline for market rate housing.
  • KB Home: Delos is a title sponsor for the KB “Home of Future”, scheduled to be unveiled at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. DARWIN will be featured as the home’s wellness technology platform.
  • Lateral Estate: Lateral, a preeminent Australian real estate developer, has announced DARWIN as a standard offering in all of its multi-family residences at Parc Blakehurst in Sydney.
  • 1371 Summitridge Drive, 521 North Cannon Drive: As part of a broad national roll out in luxury housing, these luxury single family homes in Beverly Hills, California incorporate the comprehensive home wellness platform, making them the first luxury residences to be powered by DARWIN. DARWIN is currently being commissioned by many of the most sought after newly constructed luxury homes in the United States.

“For years, the value proposition of smart technology in the home has been elusive for the masses,” said Delos Chief Technology Officer Jim Hunter. “These technologies have primarily focused on security, energy, convenience and entertainment. However, it is the health and well-being of the ones we love that is most valuable. Born out of extensive research, DARWIN is the delivery platform for our wellness algorithms that helps improve the environmental conditions where we live, work, sleep and play."

Delos has fostered leading research collaborations with the Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, a board of doctors from the Columbia University Medical Center and architects, scientists and wellness thought leaders to introduce wellness standards, programs and solutions into the built environment. Delos established the Well Living Lab™ in collaboration with Mayo Clinic — the world’s first lab committed to researching the real-world impacts of the indoor environment on human health and performance. Delos’ wellness technologies and solutions, along with the International WELL Building Institute’s WELL Building Standard, have seen broad adoption of wellness real estate programs across the commercial real estate market, with nearly 1,000 projects in 35 countries. Building upon the substantial success in the commercial sector, the launch of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform marks the first expansion of Delos’ offerings to the residential smart-home market.

“Our home environment has a profound impact on our health, well-being and happiness. As the pioneer of wellness real estate and the founder of the WELL Building Standard, the introduction of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform is a natural extension of Delos’ leading science and research and makes improved health, well-being and happiness available to all," said Deepak Chopra (Delos Advisory Board Member).

175 Million Europeans Have Sleep Apnoea, Highlighting Scale of Global Health Crisis18.9.2018 13:05Pressemelding

Roughly 175 million Europeans have obstructive sleep apnoea, according to a late-breaking abstract presented by ResMed today at the European Respiratory Society’s annual ERS Congress in Paris. Leading researchers estimate 90 million Europeans have moderate to severe sleep apnoea, meaning they experience at least 15 breathing events an hour during sleep. These statistics are based on the latest scoring rules for determining one’s apnoea–hypopnoea index (AASM 2012) and are connected with a 16-country study announced in May 2018 that revealed an estimated 936 million people worldwide have sleep apnoea, a chronic sleep-disordered breathing condition associated with increased risk of mortality and reduced quality of life. The new global prevalence is nearly tenfold higher than the previous one – 100 million – estimated by the World Health Organization in 2007.

SIA, European hi-tech company, leader in payment infrastructures and services, has further strengthened its positioning in the Nordic countries, by providing Danmarks Nationalbank with the new real-time gross settlement system (RTGS) that connects banks, mortgage banks and settlement systems.
