Microlife WatchBP Invites Medical Professionals for a 'New way through together' at ESH Meeting
Date:6/11/2009

WIDNAU, Switzerland, June 12 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- According to National Stroke Association, high blood pressure is the one of the top two stroke risk factors. To measure true blood pressure is crucial and indispensable for hypertension treatment and management. From perspectives of primary care doctors and physicians, how to obtain the best estimation of a patient's "true" blood pressure in an accurate way is very important for their daily diagnoses and treatment outcomes. Blood pressure measurement devices for office, home, and ambulatory use indubitably play an important role in such diagnoses and treatment.

Microlife, known as one of the global market leaders in the development and manufacturing of medical diagnostic devices for home monitoring and clinical use, initiates "A New Way Through Together" to have hypertension under control by 2015. With such a concept of "A New Way Through Together", Microlife opened intensive dialogues with worldwide medical societies, physicians, doctors, specialists, patients, and pharmas, in order to empower each individual to be able to manage his own health. Microlife WatchBP(R) solution, based on extensive long-term clinical research and many dialogues with medical societies, physicians and patients, is ultimate solution for blood pressure measurement for both doctors and patients. The WatchBP(R) family of blood pressure monitors is with implemented schedules that support measuring according to European Society of Hypertension (ESH) guidelines.(1, 2) In addition to aforementioned hardware, the easy-to-use software, called "WatchBP(R) analyzer", clearly presents data for easy diagnosis by doctors. Today many doctors have experienced such a convenience by using WatchBP(R).

    Major advantages of WatchBP(R) family in professional use are as follows:

    -- WatchBP(R) Office: simultaneous double-arm measurements, following
       WHO/ESH/AHA measurement protocol, and wireless connectivity
    -- WatchBP(R) Home: implemented diagnostic schedule for self-blood
       pressure measurements at home according to ESH guidelines (officially
       recommended! (3))
    -- WatchBP(R) O3 (Out-Of-Office): ambulatory device, additional mode for
       performing self-blood pressure measurements at home with diagnostic
       schedule.

Microlife is located at booth #30 at MIC - Milan Convention Centre from June 12-16 in Milan. With great enthusiasm and devotion, Microlife invites medical professionals from all over the world to experience the concept of WatchBP(R) solution in blood pressure measurement.
