InBody released a new BP 170 consumer blood pressure device. The at-home automatic blood pressure monitor uses the oscillometric method to more accurately track daily changes in systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and pulse rate.
To test, users will simply apply the one-touch cuff to one arm and begin the reading with the touch of a button. Within minutes, a digital health report will be available for the user to access from the palm of their hand. Harry Yun, CEO of InBody USA said:
“We are thrilled to bring the benefits of a medical-grade blood pressure device to households across the globe. By doing so, our hope is to expand access to this technology, pinpoint early data variances that could be indicative of serious health conditions, and support the use of blood pressure outputs for assessing general wellbeing.”
Equipped with a large display for optimal visibility, the InBody BP 170 makes it simple for users to review data that reveals signs of:
- Early morning hypertension
- Irregular pulse rate
- Incorrect cuff posture
In addition, users can track progress through the InBody app. Syncing the InBody BP 170 with the mobile app allows individuals to seamlessly view blood pressure results in real time and monitor any major fluctuations. In this instance, it is necessary to interfere in matters of the heart to understand how this data can be used to create healthy lifestyle changes that will result in reduced instances of chronic disease and general improvements in overall quality of life.
