LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- (Consumer Electronics Show) -- iHealth Labs Inc., the pioneering designer and manufacturer of mobile personal healthcare products for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch today unveiled two new additions to its suite of devices: the iHealth Wireless Smart Gluco-Monitoring System and iHealth Pulse Oximeter at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show.
The next-generation Wireless Smart Gluco-Monitoring System is an International CES® Best of Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award honoree and provides a portable system for people who regularly monitor their blood glucose levels. For people tracking the level of oxygen in their blood for fitness or health, the Pulse Oximeter offers a quick and reliable way to measure blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate directly from a mobile device.
As with existing iHealth devices, users of these products and the companion mobile apps will be able to take full advantage of the iHealth Cloud Service to instantly store and share their results online.
"These new products are intuitive FDA-reviewed devices which empower people to easily manage critical health problems such as diabetes and heart disease, and fitness activities such as oxygen levels and pulse conditions," said Adam Lin, general manager of iHealth Labs.
How They Work
iHealth's Wireless Smart Gluco-Monitoring System provides diabetics with a convenient way to measure and record blood glucose levels from their mobile devices. The Wireless Smart Gluco-Monitoring System connects wirelessly to a wide range of iOS devices, including the new iPhone 5. Users can instantly save up to 500 test results on the wireless meter, track trends over time, set up reminders to take medications and track test strip expiration dates automatically without requiring counting or coding.
The iHealth Pulse Oximeter is a reliable way to easily measure blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate (BPM) directly from an iOS device. Both athletes and patients with breathing conditions will find the Pulse Oximeter useful to check their status and track their progress. This lightweight and portable device connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to take fast, non-invasive measurements at the fingertip and displays results on an easy-to-read LED screen. Tracking oxygen levels over time is crucially important for athletes, along with people with breathing difficulties, heart issues, or other health challenges requiring a quick view of their blood oxygen levels.
Pending FDA approval, these products will be available for purchase in the 2nd half of 2013 at www.ihealthlabs.com and national retailers. Pricing has not yet been announced. The companion iHealth MyVitals App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad at www.iTunes.com/AppStore.
