LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - January 07, 2014) - VOYCE, to be unveiled at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, combines breakthrough wearable technology with insightful guidance from some of the nation's leading dog professionals -- giving owners unprecedented insight into how their dogs are feeling, acting, thinking, and behaving. Developed in collaboration with bio-medical engineers, dog experts, and Cornell University, one of the nation's top veterinary institutions, VOYCE tracks key vital signs and wellness indicators while providing subscribers with exclusive content to help them understand their dogs like never before.
"Imagine if we could understand why our dogs act in certain ways, what they're feeling and when they need something from us. Imagine if we didn't have to guess anymore -- if assumptions and uncertainty were replaced by knowledge and insight. This is what we have set out to do with VOYCE™," said Jeff Noce, President of i4C Innovations.
Worn comfortably around a dog's neck, VOYCE is a highly sophisticated, durable, and attractive health band that monitors key vital signs including heart and respiratory rates, along with other wellness indicators such as activity, rest, calories burned, and more. The data provides valuable insight into more than just health-related issues, helping owners and veterinarians recognize and understand trends in the dog's behavior, diet, exercise, and habits.
By incorporating exclusive articles written by some of the nation's leading dog experts and content partners, VOYCE matches the data with relevant information specific to your dog's needs. The VOYCE community includes respected and distinguished veterinarians, trainers, and pet authorities like Dr. Alexandra Horowitz, PhD, NY Times Best-Selling author of "Inside of a Dog." "VOYCE does not allow your dog to speak to you, but what it does might be even better: it allows owners to begin to decode what their dog is experiencing," notes Dr. Horowitz.
Through www.MyDogsVoyce.com, VOYCE subscribers can readily access their dog's personalized portfolio of data and information virtually anytime and anywhere through a desktop or mobile device. Additionally, they will have the ability to share their dog's information with veterinarians and pet service providers as well as across social networks. Subscribers will also receive tips, important reminders, and notifications covering various categories including nutrition, behavior, training, health and lifestyle.
"Get ready for VOYCE to lead the next era in our love affair with dogs," adds Noce.
Designed and assembled in the USA, VOYCE is expected to be available in summer 2014. To learn more about VOYCE, visit www.MyDogsVoyce.com.
