-- Blipcare presents World's 1st Wi-Fi Blood Pressure Monitor on Indiegogo.
High blood pressure is the second leading cause of death and nearly one-third of American adults have high blood pressure with many unaware they have it or receiving proper treatment. People with hypertension are 3x more likely to have a heart attack, 5x more likely to have heart failure and 8x more likely to have stroke. Hypertension costs over $70 billion annually.
"My own father had undiagnosed systolic hypertension. In his case, it was discovered during the development of this device" said Dr. Sukhwant Khanuja.
The Blipcare Wi-Fi Blood Pressure Monitor can be used by 2 users to track readings over the home Wi-Fi network. It is also the 1st Blood Pressure monitor that can be programmed over the web, to provide "timely reminders" to take readings. Users can set goals, visualize data, and get tailored insights using the free portal and tracking tools. The BP monitor comes in a beautiful gift box making it an ideal gift for aging parents living at a distance.
Users also will be able to get analytical reports for discussion with their doctor on how to change medication for improved Blood Pressure control! They will be able to answer many questions like-
- What time of the day is Blood Pressure highest?
- Which day of the week is Blood Pressure lowest for them?
- Is their average BP higher in winter months or summer months?
"We saw the need for a Wi-Fi based Blood pressure monitor that I could give to my father and monitor him remotely," said Dr. Khanuja. "He does not care for a smart phone so Bluetooth was not a possibility - but he does have Wi-Fi at home. We now know when he does not take a reading, or if the reading is out of predefined levels. This keeps our whole family stay connected and involved in his care."
