Pivotal Corporation, the Seattle start-up responsible for disrupting the wearable fitness marketplace with its $12 Pivotal Living Band, is pleased to announce pre-order availability for the Pivotal Living Smart Scale, a smarter scale with an even smarter price. Available for $39.95, just a fraction of the cost of most smart scales on the market, the elegant and efficient smart scale integrates seamlessly with the Pivotal Living app to provide a more intelligent way to manage body weight and overall health.
“Our mission has always been to spark a movement toward proactive health and wellness through affordable and powerful, personal health technology,” said David Donovick, CEO for Pivotal Corporation. “We are very proud to introduce a feature-rich smart scale to our family of products and software, and are thrilled to be able to offer it to our members at a pizza-dinner price!”
Using advanced bioimpedance technology, the Pivotal Living Smart Scale accurately measures key body weight and body fat percentage factors, helping people lose weight and stay healthy. Designed to help users identify when they are burning fat, building muscle and losing weight, the sleek smart scale displays weight on the scale’s easy-to-read LCD display screen and, when synced to the Pivotal Living mobile app, sends additional weight and body details. The scale’s four load sensors accurately assess body composition measurements based on weight and height data stored within the app. Working together, the scale and app measure and track.

Results from two national surveys of patients receiving chemotherapy and pharmacists, conducted by the Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA) in collaboration with Eisai Inc.,* found that 83% of patients receiving chemotherapy who have experienced chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) believe it is a side effect with which they must live. Results also showed that 95% of cancer patients surveyed believe that CINV has, at some point, had an impact on their daily lives. These national surveys are part of the Time to Talk CINV™ campaign, which aims to increase awareness among patients and caregivers about CINV prevention and the importance of speaking with their pharmacist and full healthcare team about this often preventable side effect.
“The survey results underscore the confusion patients who are undergoing chemotherapy have about CINV and the need for them to understand that there are ways to manage their symptoms so that they do not have to needlessly suffer with CINV,” said Scott Soefje, PharmD, MBA, BCOP, President, Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA) and Director of Pharmacy at the University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin, TX. “It is imperative that patients discuss CINV prevention early in treatment and with all members of the health care team, including pharmacists.”

The current student loan debt crisis in the U.S. is real. Total student loan debt currently stands at more than $1.16 trillion. And, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, student loans represent the highest amount of delinquent debt compared to all other forms of household debt, including mortgages, auto loans, and credit cards.
Gaining a college education has long been among the most important first steps towards obtaining a happy and prosperous life. The reality, however, is that most college graduates are starting their adult life deep in debt, and feeling stressed and completely unprepared to manage their financial lives. The good news is that the government has created programs to help borrowers reduce the burden caused by student loan debt. To learn more about these government programs, visit StudentAid.ed.gov.
Money Management International (MMI), along with other nonprofit organizations and consumer advocate groups, have taken additional steps to help struggling student loan borrowers understand their repayment plan options, find solutions for managing other debt obligations, and create realistic action plans for reaching overall financial success.
