MEDISANA introduces new platform for mobile healthPlease visit our joint booth with Microlife in Hall 11, B No.60

Neuss. MEDISANA AG presents its health devices of the VitaDock series at the Medica 2010 in Düsseldorf for the first time to the medical expert audience. Medisana exhibits on a joint booth with Microlife, a Swiss company with a leading edge position in the development and manufacturing of medical diagnostic equipment for home monitoring and institutional use.

VitaDock is a health management system providing a platform for various health monitors for vital body signs and health parameters such as blood glucose, blood pressure, pulse and temperature. The VitaDock health monitors are extremely compact modules which connect to a Smart Phone, PDA or Tablet PC. MEDISANA will continuously expand the VitaDock platform and add new health monitors to cover different needs and purposes in the area of medical self-monitoring.

The whole health data collected from the VitaDock health monitors will be processed, synchronized and visualized by a tailored software application (App). Thanks to the personal health data base the user/patient can easily keep track of vital parameters and their historical progression over days, weeks, months and years. Various diagnostic functions will assist the user to analyze the results. In the new area of mobile health management vital data and parameters are available anytime to be displayed, shared and communicated with the doctor, family members, friends or caregivers.

The launch for the VitaDock Monitors and Measuring devices for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is planned for 2nd quarter of 2011 in Germany and Europe. In detail this includes the blood glucose meter “GlucoDock”, the infrared thermometer “ThermoDock” and the blood pressure and pulse monitor “CardioDock”. The VitaDock Software App will be available on the iTunes Appstore for download simultaneously.

Ralf Lindner, CEO of MEDISANA AG, sees his expectations by the previous market reactions fully confirmed: “The feedback is just overwhelming. It is a pleasure to see how our vision of the future of mobile health becomes a reality.“
