AmpStrip’s owners Fitlinxx have released the following:
AmpStrip development suspended – refund information
After much discussion and debate, we have decided to suspend development of AmpStrip as a fitness product. Going forward, we are going to first focus on the device’s potential uses as a medical device rather than a fitness device.
Many of you have commented on AmpStrip’s potential medical benefits – the potential ability for patients and doctors to monitor irregular heart rate, respiratory function and activity levels to name just a few. We believe that in that capacity, this device can truly make a difference in people’s lives.
Unfortunately, we do not currently have the resources to simultaneously support our previous athletic performance objectives and our current medical focus. For that reason, we will be unable to ship the AmpStrip at this time.
We will be refunding everyone’s money.
Disappointing as the product seemed like a good idea though hard to implement. As they may well have found out.
