Tele-monitoring health devices are becoming quite the rage these days, seeing how wireless technologies and standards have matured. A&D Medical is taking advantage of the trend and will begin offering under their LifeSource brand a blood pressure monitor, a body weight scale, and an “activity monitor” (probably a standard pedometer), all of which send their data to a computer through a USB stick.
From the press release:
A family of three products are being unveiled, including the Wireless Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor, Wireless Precision Scale, and Wireless Activity Monitor. Utilizing FitLinxx, Inc.’s proprietary wireless technology all of the Wellness Connected products will be linked to provide users a comprehensive picture of their wellness. A complete record of blood pressure, weight, and activity transmits to a user’s computer automatically, where custom software saves and charts daily progress. Consumers can also conveniently send data to Actihealth(TM) internet service for enhanced functionality, to access their personal wellness information from anywhere, and to share their progress with family, friends, support groups, and medical professionals
