GOQii, an Indian fitness technology company, announced it would launch its medical services in the metaverse in the UAE, following India and the United Kingdom.

GOQii collaborated with Harley International Medical Clinic in Dubai to promote the health metaverse, as diabetics in the UAE will be able to enroll on the GOQii health platform to follow up on their health condition through the diabetes care program on the metaverse.

Through the guidance of experts, users will be directed to a comprehensive digital platform and equipped with modern connected devices, doctors, health coaches, who will guide the patients to adjust their lifestyle and control their HbA1C levels. Users will be able to create their avatars on the metaverse while connected to their GOQii Age.

In this regard, Founder and CEO of GOQii Vishal Gondal said this Web3-based health technology is meant to bring health and fitness to the virtual space for end-consumers to become more healthy and fit.

“With the advent of 5G and better screens, we believe that the interaction will start transitioning to a more 3D gaming-like experience. We’re launching a 3D user interface where you have a 3D avatar and the various zones that your avatar can experiment with. Think of it like – healthcare meets gaming, where you create your own character or avatar who further interacts with other avatars through the 3D metaverse. We aim to take this vision a step closer to reality,” Gondal told Business Today.

He added that GOQii chose the UAE as the third market for the company following the UK and India for being active and rapid regarding adopting the metaverse and Web 3.0 technologies.

Recently, a report by Chalhoub Group found that there is a high level of awareness in the UAE about the metaverse, NFTs, and crypto.

Over the past few years, the UAE, especially Dubai, has positioned itself as one of the world’s prominent hubs for metaverse and blockchain technologies.

The Emirati government, in July, launched the Dubai Metaverse Strategy, which aims to contribute $4 billion to the emirate’s economy. The strategy targets increasing the number of blockchain and metaverse companies fivefold within five years as well as offering 40,000 virtual jobs.
