Convenient New iHealth Blood Pressure Monitors and Body Analysis Scale Now Available for Purchase at Major Retailers and Online


11/7/2012 2:14:46 PM

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- iHealth Labs Inc., the pioneering designer and manufacturer of mobile personal healthcare products for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, today announced that its latest suite of products will be available for purchase at major retailers and online. The iHealth Wireless Blood Pressure Wrist Monitor, Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor and Wireless Body Analysis Scale are now available at Best Buy and www.ihealthlabs.com, with availability at Apple stores also rolling out this month.

"Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Lifestyle changes such as utilizing an iHealth Blood Pressure Monitor or Body Analysis Scale can help equip users to make informed health decisions to significantly reduce their risk," said Adam Lin, general manager of iHealth Labs. "By employing these simple to use products which connect with iOS devices to easily show progress, people can vastly improve their health and quality of life."

Supporting both new and existing iHealth products, the newest free app, iHealth MyVitals, seamlessly brings together all of a user's iHealth health data into one easy-to-access hub. The app further empowers people to manage their health through a personal dashboard and share their results with their doctors, on social media networks or with their family and personal trainers. This easy sharing of information allows medical professionals to better keep track of their patients in between office visits and observe changes over time.

How They Work

The iHealth Wireless Blood Pressure Wrist Monitor allows people to measure their blood pressure directly from their iOS device. Employing Motion Sensor Technology in conjunction with the iHealth MyVitals app, the Wrist Monitor increases accuracy by automatically inflating once the user's hand is in the correct position for a measurement. The non-traditional device takes the guesswork out of obtaining an accurate reading and records systolic/diastolic numbers, heart rate and pulse wave, and allows people to view historical blood pressure readings using customizable colorful graphs.

The iHealth Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor lets users test, track and share their blood pressure wirelessly using an upper-arm cuff connected via Bluetooth to their iOS device. With the automated reading, people can easily test, track and share their results. The comprehensive companion iHealth MyVitals app includes an easy-to-use interface with data and graphics that allows users to view their blood pressure numbers and track changes over time.

The iHealth Wireless Body Analysis Scale combines a sleek black ergonomic design with the ability to wirelessly track a complete range of body metrics including such as weight, body fat, lean mass, muscle mass, bone mass, body water, visceral fat rating and Daily Calorie Intake, providing a more complete view of overall health to increase awareness on areas for improvement. In addition to the display on the scale itself, results are shown through the iHealth app on the users' iOS device. The device will automatically detect which person is using the scale, making it the ideal tool for the entire family or fitness practice.

Availability, Compatibility and Price

iHealth's latest products will be available for purchase at www.ihealthlabs.com, Apple and Best Buy at the following retail prices:

  • Wireless Blood Pressure Wrist Monitor $79.95
  • Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor $99.95
  • Wireless Body Analysis Scale $109.95

The new companion integrated app, iHealth MyVitals, is available at no cost from the App Store on the iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, or iPod touch at www.iTunes.com/AppStore.
