Health care is on its way to being available on-the-go with the recent announcement that Vital USA Inc. has partnered with the Partners Connected Health team to validate its Vital Moto Mod health and wellness device.
Employing frictionless vital sign biometric technology, the device is a 5-in-1: an integrated vital sign monitoring platform pairs with a smartphone to monitor give vital signs including heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation (SpO2), non-contact core body temperature and blood pressure all within three minutes.
The device eliminates the need for cumbersome and difficult to self-administer arm-cuff blood pressure measurement. With its light and pressure sensors, Vital’s proprietary finger cuff measures systolic and diastolic blood pressure from the finger. The technology captures the patient’s data and wirelessly uploads this information to using Bluetooth technology to wirelessly upload to the cloud.
“This is really the next frontier for personal wellness,” said Dr. Mark Blatt, Chief Medical Officer at Vital USA Inc. “By providing the consumer with a simple way to measure and monitor the five critical vital health signs they are empowered to take control, and keep an eye on their own overall health and wellness.”
Currently, the the Vital Moto Mod works with the HIPAA-compliant Vital App and the two companies are working together on a clinical trial to compare Vital Moto Mod to similar medical devices as part of a step to FDA approval.
