Hilden. MEDISANA AG presented their health devices of the Vitadock series at the IFA 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Berlin for the first time. In conjunction with custom-made software applications (apps), the new measuring and monitoring devices facilitate the continuous recording of various vital parameters and historical progression over days, weeks, months and years and various analysis and classification functions, e.g. according to the WHO standard (the UN World Health Organisation).
The VitaDock health monitors are extremely compact modules which can be attached to a Smart Phone, PDA or Tablet PC, etc.). Based on the various measurements they provide the readings to the corresponding software application. The Software Application or App automatically displays the measurement result, computes it and saves it in a personal data base. Thus important vital data and parameters are available anytime to be displayed, shared and communicated with the doctor, family members and friends or caregivers; in social networks or with individual interest groups.
The launch for the VitaDock Monitors and Measuring devices for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G, 2G, iPad and iPod touch is planned for 1st 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 later this year.
Ralf Lindner, CEO of MEDISANA AG, sees his expectations by the previous course of the exhibition fully confirmed: “In the following months we are going to position VitaDock very selectively in line with cooperations to make the considerable sales and turnover potential accessible.“
