THERMOMETRY & FREE DEVICE GIVEAWAY AT BOOTH

Specifically, ForaCare will present its new Nexus IR30 thermometer for the first time - an infrared thermometer that is capable of detecting body temperature without making contact with the skin.  ForaCare will be giving 200 of its Nexus IR19 thermometers away at their exhibit to all distributors and customers visiting the exhibit booth [6J30].

The new Nexus IR30 is capable of detecting objects automatically and begins the measurement process within a range of 1.5 centimeters (cm).  The device is capable of measuring even inanimate objects without making contact and can even safely measure a baby’s bath water, for example.

BLOOD GLUCOSE MONITORING

ForaCare will also present its FORA Diamond line of glucose meters featuring new SSI Technology that provides five main improved performance features:  fast blood absorption (completes within five seconds), testing from most any angle, easier strip handling, reduced strip wastage and more accuracy in test results.  ForaCare’s Diamond products, Diamond Prima, Voice, Mini and iDiamond, deliver solutions for better self-management through the ForaCare TeleHealth System.  The innovative technology enables users to update their blood glucoses level on mobile devices (iOS and Android platform enabled) instantly and transmit data to the TeleHealth system, allowing them to upload data whenever, wherever and share information with their family and physician if desired.

BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING

ForaCare’s AVG technology will also be presented at the meeting demonstrating its simple innovation of taking three measurements and averaging them together as well as its IRB technology that can detect irregular heart beat.  When used in at home, patients can be confident of their self-monitoring readings when they share them with their doctor.  (Note: the technology does not substitute for cardiac examination).
