Remote health monitoring system automatically sends readings from anywhere in a patient’s house.
Ambio Health’s Remote Health Monitoring System, a wireless health-monitoring product, is now available for purchase online.
The system has a “plug-and-play” set-up with no Bluetooth or Wi-Fi configuration, and it automatically sends readings from anywhere in a patient’s house. Patients can use meters and send readings without having to possess a wireless gateway hub, connect a cable, or start a personal computer or smartphone application.
Ambio automatically logs readings, which can be viewed in a secure, Web-based portal and can be printed or emailed as needed. Users can be notified when their test strip supplies are low and need to be reordered.
A single device costs $49.97 and includes a glucose meter with wireless connectivity as well as an annual subscription costing about $4.99 per month. Wireless blood pressure meters and weight scales are sold separately.
The system has been named one of eWeek’s “10 health and fitness tools to track exercise, chronic conditions.”
