Mobile Health is on the Advance
When one hears the term mHealth (Mobile Health), he understands medical applications, mostly through apps, that are connected with medical devices and sensors. The connection of medical devices with mobile devices not only allows for high mobility, but it also opens up the possibility to collect medical data that provides important information about the health of a patient from a large distance.
Blood pressure monitors, blood sugar monitors and fever thermometers or even spirometers and ECG machines are among products used in mHealth applications.
mHealth is becoming an even more relevant practice for doctors and could drastically lighten the workload in areas with only a few doctors e.g. in rural regions.
In our themed category, we would like to present you with information surrounding the theme of mHealth, as well as new and interesting, app-based devices from renowned brands.
QardioArm Blood Pressure Monitor
QardioArm is an app-based blood pressure monitor that is ideal for mobile use, thanks to its compact dimensions and low weight. This fully automatic blood pressure monitor can be used with Android and iOS-based mobile devices. QardioArm determines the blood pressure via an oscillometric measurement technique, thus offering high accuracy. The measurement process is started via Bluetooth from the smartphone or tablet and the values are also transmitted via Bluetooth from the blood pressure monitor to the mobile device. The Qardio app allows one to analyse the values and measurement history and share them with family members or the doctor.
