A good news for blood pressure patients, having iPhone or iPad. Now you can monitor your blood pressure on your iPhone or iPad, thanks to a new health-oriented accessory from Withings.
Withings Smart Blood Pressure Monitor is a $129 arm cuff that makes it easy to monitor your blood pressure every day, away from the doctor’s office.
“It’s much more accurate to test at home,” said Withings spokeswoman Carole Lavault.
“Twenty five percent of the worldwide population has hypertension,” she added.
The system looks quite easy to use. Just wrap the sleeve around your arm and plug it into your iPhone/iPad’s dock. Hit the onscreen button, and the sleeve inflates/deflates to measure your blood pressure. That’s it, nothing to give you a heart attack.
Here’s a picture of the iPhone app in action:
Combined with a free app, the sleeve can record months of blood pressure data, which can be shared electronically with health care professionals.
Withings also makes the WiFi Body Scale, a net-connected scale, which can also send weight data to the blood pressure app.
