About

 

Growcheck is the first vertical IoT body measurement device that offers height and weight measurement. Being the first device that gives consideration for kids, Growcheck allows users to track their own data and get the solution about their child's growth. 

  

 

 

 

 

Same design over the years

Trip-and-fall accidents caused by traditional devices

Another device for height measurement

 

Growcheck reduces home accident risks by taking advantage of being vertical. It is a safe household appliance for you and your family. Moreover, you can use it as a part of your home decoration! The smart design of the device fits well in any room, and its sleek design goes well with your home decoration.

If you have a child, whose growth is important for you, make the growth management easy with Growcheck! Through Growcheck Application, you can compare her/his growth with the same gender and age peers’ data by checking the growth distribution and get the analysis about your kids’ growth. In case of abnormality you can also get the solution about his/her growth.

 Make it a part of your home decoration

Display explanation 

   

 

In 2015, the first product we planned was a product called Phyctogram. With this product, all you have to do is simply have your kid lean against the wall and press a smartphone-sized Phyctogram button fixed on the wall, then you can measure your kid’s height without any physical contact.

With this product alone, we got 4 gold medals in USA Pittsburgh World Invention Fair. We also got orders for about 5,000 units. However, there were errors due to non-contact measurement method.(Because each individual has different shape of hair) Thereupon, having mass production schedule ahead of us, there were a lot of needs from our customers on the product which can measure and manage data on weight. This made us change our product plan as follows;

1. Let’s make a product with which we can measure height and weight all at once and use in our home.
2. Existing body scales were difficult to keep and not pretty enough to display, let’s improve their design and usability.
3. Let’s provide solutions to check kids’ growth and scan any abnormality at its early stage if any to take right measures.
With these 3 objectives, we made Growcheck. We will also listen to backers’ opinion.

Nowadays everything changes very quickly, and every single household appliance that we use in our homes renews itself with the modern ones. So we dreamed about a standing weight scale, which also cares about the health of children. This is how we came up with the idea of Growcheck.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing challenge: Creating a hardware has always some challenges such as supply problems and manufacturing delays, and we are aware of these risks and the challenges that we can encounter while production. So we are going to do everything in our power to reduce these risks to minimum. Our manufacturer has decades of experience in hardware manufacturing. Besides, our team is currently making the last arrangements on software and testing it.
Shipping challenge: Although we have taken all possible issues and problems into consideration, unforeseeable things can occur during shipping process. However we will meticulously track the products and will keep you updated about our progress. If we run into unexpected delays we promise to keep you informed, and we will handle any issues with full transparency. And please note that shipping time varies according to countries.
We have been working hard to realize our project, all we need now is YOU and your support!
