QardioArm Is the First Medical Device With Health Support Available on Apple's App Store

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2014) - Qardio is delighted to announce that QardioArm, the blood pressure monitor you can use anytime, anywhere, is the first medical device to offer integration with Apple's Health App on the App Store.

The Qardio App and Apple's HealthKit work together, enabling the sharing of blood pressure, heart rate and other health data. Apple's Health app lets users access all their health and wellness information in one place.

"The clarity and simplicity of the information controls that Apple's Health offers are refreshing for consumers, and a big step forward for the industry. They were fundamental to our decision to offer HealthKit support," said Rosario Iannella, Qardio's CTO. 

With Qardio App's support for Apple's Health, users have all the conveniences and accuracy of the QardioArm blood pressure monitor, and even more powerful ways to use their health and wellness data.

The focus that Apple and other large players are bringing to the health arena is set to accelerate the realization of Qardio's transformational vision. Marco Peluso, Qardio's CEO, commented: "We believe that people deserve a better way to monitor their health. The fact that QardioArm is the first medical device to support Apple's HealthKit on the App Store results from our drive to be at the forefront in driving the health care revolution."

Now it is even easier for those who have been using other blood pressure monitors to migrate their data and start using the QardioArm.

In order to protect the privacy of health and wellness data, the Qardio App data sharing with Health is turned-off by default. For more details see our Health support page here. The Qardio App works with iOS 7.0 or later, while support for Health requires iOS 8.0.2. The Qardio App is available for download now here.
