LAS VEGAS — iHealth Labs on Monday 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 here.
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," stated Adam Lin, general manager of iHealth Labs.
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 and pulse rate 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 Food and Drug Administration approval, these products will be available for purchase in the second half of 2013, iHealth stated. Pricing has not yet been announced.
