French technology company Withings today released its Blood Pressure Monitor (BPM) for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in the US. This Withings BPM, including blood pressure cuff and companion Withings App, is a modern way to measure and record blood pressure readings in the personal and professional arenas. Here is more info:
The Withings BPM is truly a plug-and-play solution for blood pressure measurement and tracking. Users simply wrap the blood pressure cuff around their arm and plug it directly into their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch using the incorporated cable. Once connected, the Withings App launches instantly on the iOS device and is ready to begin the measurement. When the reading is complete, the full results (Systole, Diastole and heart rate) are saved directly on the device, eliminating manual tracking.
A user?s stats can be accessed instantly from their iOS device or from their personal Withings webpage. Results are saved denoting dates and time of day for each reading, to help when comparing morning, afternoon and evening readings, and readings over time. Results can easily be shared by emailing results to a doctor and/or using the device?s automatic sharing feature to sync with popular personal health record sites like Google Health and Microsoft HealthVault - virtually eliminating the gap between patient and doctor.
