Cuff-less blood pressure monitors reach the market


HANDY: Checkme Health Monitor by Viatom Technology

China-based Viatom recently received CE approval for sales of its Checkme tricorder device in Europe. Check me is a portable, personal device that measures vital signs easily.

Checkme can measure blood pressure in 20 seconds without a cuff. The wireless device is a little smaller than a smartphone and said to be easy to use, enabled to track blood pressure variation.

It can also track cardiac rate, blood oxygenation, body temperature and pulse. Taking the temperature is just a question of sliding the device over the forehead, so it's possible to not wake sleeping children.

Additionally, the device offers heath-tracking capabilities normally found in wearable trackers such as a pedometer, sleep monitor and calorie tracking.

In October 2013 San Diego-based Sotera Wireless, Inc. received FDA approval for its continuous, non-invasive blood pressure tracking technology, which was added to the company's ViSi Mobile patient monitor.

The system is worn on the wrist and it measures all core vital signs 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

Viatom has not yet set a price for Checkme, but more information can be found at www.viatomtech.com.
