Withings App Connects Blood Pressure Monitor to iOS Devices

June 20, 2011 – French technology company Withings announced today the U.S. availability of its blood pressure monitor (BPM) for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It is offered as a modern way to measure and record blood pressure readings in the personal and professional arenas.

The Withings BPM is a plug-and-play solution for blood pressure measurement and tracking. Users 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 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 be shared with a doctor via e-mail and/or by using the device’s automatic sharing feature to sync with popular personal health record sites like Google Health and Microsoft HealthVault.

When used in conjunction with the company’s Wi-Fi body scale, weight and blood pressure are tracked on the same graph within the app, giving users a quick, comprehensive health snapshot, which is ideal when tracking trends and early warning signs of health problems.
