SYDNEY, Australia and MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medibio Limited (MEB or the Company) (ASX:MEB) (OTCQB:MDBIF), a mental health technology company that has pioneered the use of objective biometrics to assist in the screening, diagnosing, monitoring and management of depression and other mental health conditions, has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Striiv.

The strategic partnership is intended to allow Striiv to integrate Medibio’s proprietary, personal mental health evaluation technology into its mobile app and assessment services, which has a user base of over 1 million subscribers.

This partnership also reflects Striiv’s deep commitment to the development of novel ways to improve wellness. In addition to the partnership with Medibio, Striiv has a history of successful collaborations with healthcare partners and corporate clients such as UnitedHealth Group Inc., Qualcomm Life, and Pfizer Inc. The UnitedHealthcare Motion program is an example of an innovative wellness program by UnitedHealthcare® in 40 states where members can earn $1,000 or more each plan year by tracking and achieving goals. Powered by Qualcomm Life’s 2net* technology, Striiv offers secure, medical-grade connectivity.
