A Birmingham entrepreneur, backed by the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN), is now entering the US market with a genetic testing service.
Rightangled has announced it will be joining the ABHI (Association of British HealthTech Industries) Innovation Hub, a unique partnership between the ABHI and Dell Medical School at The University of Texas in Austin.
Rightangled has also opened a new office at Dell Medical School in Austin, Texas, as part of a UK/US innovation sharing partnership programme, and at a time where the company is expanding its services across the Atlantic.
Abdullah, Founder of Rightangled, initially launched a heart DNA test in 2017 after researching to see whether people are predisposed to heart conditions when his business partner’s mother suffered five strokes. Rightangled’s latest test helps people to understand how to maximise muscle growth, shed excess body fat, manage blood sugar levels, and identify food intolerances and much more.
Speaking about WMAHSN’s involvement, Tony Davis Commercial Director, for the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network, said: "We have invested in Rightangled because its technology and service offerings align with our work for the NHS, supporting the establishment of a regional genomics medicine service that takes in all aspects of personalised medicine and prevention – as well as effective diagnosis."
Abdullah added: "Genetic information is the language of life. Its insight gives doctors and fitness professionals a more precise and accurate outlook. Knowing this information helps take the guesswork out of prescribing treatments, constructing diet and fitness programs and then figuring out how successful they ultimately become.
"Interestingly, we are seeing more and more doctors using genetic information nowadays, our mission is to enable genetic analysis to become a regular activity inside medical practices, fitness and wellness centres in the UK and further in the US as well.”
Rightangled’s Fitness DNA test is available now from www.rightangled.co.uk.
