CES2011: iHealth Launches Breakthrough Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring System for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

For $99 you can get a nice blood pressure monitoring kit from iHealth, which I don’t think is bad as high blood pressure is not a good thing and it should always be monitored. I’ve known several people in my family with it, and it can cause problems, and of course the cost of the medication that goes with it to treat it. The kit includes the app, docking station and the arm cuff, I think it’s worth it for some peace of mind…

-iHealth Lab Inc., a pioneering designer and manufacturer of digital personal healthcare products, today announced the launch of the iHealth Blood Pressure Monitoring System for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Comprised of a hardware dock, blood pressure arm cuff and iHealth App, this breakthrough product lets users self-monitor their blood pressure from the convenience of their home, and share the results with friends, family and most importantly, their doctor.

“Regularly monitoring blood pressure in a relaxed, consistent setting gives users the most reliable information on the status of their cardiovascular health”

A recent report from Kaiser Permanente found that patients doing self-monitoring of their vitals were 50 percent more likely to have their blood pressure under control.

“Empowering people to manage their personal healthcare is our passion,” said Yi Liu, CEO, iHealth Lab. “The future of health management starts with the individual. By identifying how daily activities affect one’s vitals like blood pressure and heart rate, people can be more proactive about their personal healthcare.”

How It Works

The iHealth Blood Pressure Monitoring System lets users measure and track their blood pressure and heart rate from the convenience of their iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The system comes with a blood pressure arm cuff and a portable, battery-powered dock allowing for quick and easy set up. The dock also doubles as a charging station for all three iOS devices.

The companion iHealth App includes an easy-to-use interface with data and graphics that allow the user to view their blood pressure numbers, track them over time, and run reports. Users can easily access previously recorded data sets, view patterns by date and time of day and create custom graphs and charts. Users can also instantaneously share the results with their doctor, or loved ones.

“Regularly monitoring blood pressure in a relaxed, consistent setting gives users the most reliable information on the status of their cardiovascular health,” said Dr. Andrew Brandeis, a practicing physician at Care Practice in San Francisco. “More important, iHealth — for the first time — reveals trends and fluctuations in the data and enables the user to easily share the information with their doctor.”

Availability, Compatibility and Price

The iHealth Blood Pressure Monitoring System (battery-powered docking station and blood pressure arm cuff) is available for $99.95 from iHealth99.com.
