Beurer has announced two new additions to its range of blood pressure monitors that can send data to smartphones
The BM 75 and BM 85 are compact, upper arm medical devices designed to take fast and accurate blood pressure readings.
Both the BM 75 and BM 85 feature large backlit LCDs that display pulse, systolic and diastolic readings with a patented resting indicator for exact measurement results and hemodynamic stability diagnosis.
They both include arrhythmia detection to detect and warn of possible heart rhythm disturbance, with readings taken fully automatically from the upper arm using the measurement cuff.
They use the colour-coded World Health Organisation (WHO) indicator to inform immediately if readings fall within the desired boundaries.
The monitors are also compatible with Beurer’s HealthManager software and free app that combines four key aspects of health management and alongside blood pressure can help users manage fitness and sleep, weight and body composition and blood glucose for a complete analysis of their state of health, fitness and wellbeing.
Readings from the BM 75 can be immediately uploaded to a smartphone running the HealthManager app using NFC, which transmits over distances of a few centimeters, or alternatively via USB cable to the HealthManager desktop suite on a PC.
The BM 85 offers similar advantages but utilises bluetooth for added convenience of transmission at greater distances.
When uploaded, users can view detailed history of the blood pressure readings in a graph or table alongside the recent measurements and further information about blood pressure information supplied by WHO.
Robert Slade, managing director for Beurer UK, said: “Our goal with the BM 75 and 85 was to make blood pressure measurement as straightforward, comfortable and convenient as possible.
“The ability to wirelessly upload results and view blood pressure history through HealthManager is a great example of how modern technology can work together to provide genuine advantages to our day to day lives”.
