Healthcare for the rest of us
Now owned by Nokia, Withings leads in digital health – it’s Health/iPhone-compatible scales remain hugely popular. The company says its new devices make monitoring overall heart health and identifying issues early much easier.
“We are excited to be introducing BPM Core and BPM Connect, as both medical devices go way beyond simply providing people with easy access to their personal blood pressure information,” said Eric Carreel, President of Withings.
“BPM Core is by far the most sophisticated and wide-ranging, at-home cardiovascular monitor yet that gives people and their physicians a detailed look at their daily heart health from the comfort of their home. On the other hand, our new BPM Connect was specifically designed to offer people that want a simple way to monitor their general heart health a user-friendly and convenient solution they can use without the need of a phone and even while on-the-go.”
Withings BPM Core
This is the first over-the-counter device able to measure blood pressure, record an electrocardiogram (ECG) and listen to the heart via a digital stethoscope in one device.
These technologies go several steps further than Apple Watch as they allow the users to detect serious conditions from home that are often underdiagnosed or missed, such as atrial fibrillation and valvular diseases.
In addition, its digital stethoscope listens for heart abnormalities to provide early detection of valvular heart disease, characterized by damage to one of the four heart valves that may require surgical intervention.
It can transact all its measurements inside 90-seconds.
Withings BPM Connect
This is an updated version of the classic Withings BPM. It now features an LED display and advanced sync options that make taking, viewing and sharing cardiovascular readings simpler than ever.
