A&D Medical Introduces Its UltraConnect Wireless Devices
Premium Line of BLE Devices Blends Function and Design for Better Health Management
MINNEAPOLIS – May 14, 2016 – A&D Medical, a global leader in connected health and biometric measurement devices and services, will be unveiling a new line of personal mobile health devices as part of the WellnessConnected family – A&D Medical UltraConnect – at ATA 2016, with the introduction of its A&D Medical UltraConnect Wireless upper arm and wrist blood pressure monitors.
With a sleek, streamlined profile, the new upper arm and wrist wireless blood pressure monitors represent the launch of the first products in a new line of connected health devices that will expand the company’s family of medical-grade and consumer health monitoring devices.
"The new form factor brings blood pressure monitoring to an enhanced level, allowing the products to support both traditional stand-alone use as well as improved wireless use when coupled with a smartphone," said Terry Duesterhoeft, President and CEO of A&D Medical. "We designed the new products based on feedback from consumers, who wanted simplified products with easy-to-use wireless capability, while also delivering accurate data points that can be seamlessly shared with healthcare providers."
The new A&D Medical UltraConnect blood pressure monitors offer an unmatched set of features and capabilities including:
- A sleek, tubeless design that slips easily on the wrist or arm;
- Light-weight style so users can effortlessly transport the device wherever they go, ensuring they can consistently track and share blood pressure readings;
- Proximity Bluetooth sensing which allows the company’s A&D Connect App to automatically detect and connect to the monitor for a seamless user experience;
- An offline, stand-alone operation, allowing for the subsequent transfer of up to 100 readings to the A&D Connect app at a later time;
- A bright OLED display to provide illuminated feedback of measurement results; and
- Multi-user support functionality for 5 users plus a guest.
As with existing A&D Medical devices, users will be able to operate the new blood pressure monitors with their mobile device using the company’s free companion app – A&D Connect – designed to enhance the end-user experience with engaging and easy-to-use features such as graphing, trending, unlimited memory, reminders, and goal setting.
Designed for simplified monitoring and data transfer, the new A&D Medical UltraConnect provides even more robust compatibility with both iOS and a wider range of Android devices.
That data is transmitted through the user’s smartphone to his/her personal WellnessConnected account on A&D’s secure cloud, and can then be shared with physicians, other care givers, and loved ones via email, social media, or through an A&D partner API.
"The new product line leverages our deep experience in designing and delivering connected products to both the consumer wellness and healthcare spaces," said Mr. Duesterhoeft.
The new A&D Medical UltraConnect blood pressure monitors will be available in Q3 2016.
