“Fora Care Suisse AG was honored to present to the African market.  Our offerings attracted much attention by the professionals who visited our booth, many of whom are now our new customers,” said Ty-Minh Tan, CEO of Fora Care Suisse AG.  “We are pleased to have gained the approval of an audience of doctors, nurses, and experts from private and public hospitals, charities, distributors and the governmental sector.”

Professionals who visited the showcase highly rated Fora Care’s Diamond range products because of their innovative design as well as superior product performance and attention to the needs of patients in their use; for example, visitors paid much attention to Fora Care’s Diamond Voice has a large back-lit LED screen particularly suited for diabetic patients with poor eye sight and provides audible voice instructions that can be provided in a loud voice for patients who have poor hearing.

“Professionals who were concerned that clever and convenient design may not always equal accuracy were pleased to know that Fora Care’s products provide clinical accuracy while delivering style and comfort,” said Mr. Tan.

Fora Care representatives demonstrated the ease of use and consistency of the new line of blood pressure monitoring technologies – AVG and IRB – for finding the most accurate blood pressure measurement by taking three consecutive measurements and automatically averaging them and for the detection of irregular heart beat.

All ForaCare monitoring devices are validated as highly accurate in the industry and provide superior quality directly to consumers.  FORA Blood Glucose Monitors are validated according to ISO 15197 requirements at an internationally renowned diabetes institute in Ulm, Germany. ForaCare provides FDA cleared and CE marked innovative health monitoring devices that provide simple connection to the FORA system. For more information, please visit http://www.ForaCare.ch
