SAN JOSE, Calif. — Bridging the health care and consumer arenas, A&D Medical is rolling out its new line of UltraConnect blood pressure monitors to the retail space.
A&D said the UltraConnect BP monitors, to be on display at the NACDS Total Store Expo (booth 4241), are targeted at retail pharmacists looking to help consumers better manage their health and well-being.
With a sleek, tubeless design that slips easily onto the wrist or arm, the new UltraConnect monitors are lightweight and compact, allowing users to easily transport the device and track and share blood pressure readings wherever they go. A bright OLED display provides illuminated feedback of measurement results, and multi-user support functionality accommodates five users plus a guest.
The Smart Connect feature automatically detects and connects the monitor to the A&D Connect app. The device’s offline, stand-alone operation allows for the transfer of up to 100 readings to the A&D Connect app at a later time.
“We know today’s retail pharmacists are trying to address the needs of a wide range of customers, from the extremely health-conscious to patients struggling to manage a chronic condition,” stated Terry Duesterhoeft, president and chief executive officer of A&D Medical. “So before we designed this new line, we collected extensive consumer feedback. The result is what customers told us they want: an easy-to-use product that consistently delivers accurate measurements, paired with the ability to allow streamlined sharing of data with health care providers.”
As with the A&D Medical WellnessConnected devices, users will be able to operate the UltraConnect monitors with their mobile device using the free A&D Connect app, which offers such functions as graphing, trending, unlimited memory, reminders and goal setting. The app is compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
“The new product line leverages our more than four decades of experience in designing and delivering connected products to both the consumer and healthcare spaces, which is precisely where pharmacies sit in the spectrum of healthcare delivery,” Duesterhoeft added. “We look forward to sharing the ways we can help retail pharmacists as they care for their customers now and in the future.”
