VitaDock App is a medically-certified application that makes it possible to monitor your health using an iPhone®, iPod touch® or iPad® in conjunction with the accompanying VitaDock health measurement modules. In addition, all vital signs can be saved, retrieved, evaluated and exported via the VitaDock® Online Portal developed by MEDISANA®. This means that blood pressure, blood gucose, weight and temperature data can be saved independent of the device and be viewed online as statistics and tables any time and anywhere.
There are four products in the innovative VitaDock ® series on the market: GlucoDock® – a blood glucose module that, thanks to its diary function, makes the tedious recording of measurements and insulin units a thing of the past for diabetics. ThermoDock® that transforms an iPhone® , iPad ® or iPod touch® into an infrared thermometer. CardioDock® that lets you monitor blood pressure and pulse simply, quickly and accurately. And TargetScale® – a body analysis scale with integrated target function that enables you to monitor a variety of weight measurements. The VitaDock® App is available free of charge in the Apple App Store.

As a manufacturer of technical health care products (home health care), a variety of our brands are available in 35 countries, with the European market being our strongest.
