ForaCare Suisse AG Launches Video to Introduce the Diamond Wireless Full Care System Bluetooth Capabilities
ST. GALLEN, Switzerland, May 6, 2014 / ForaCare Suisse AG has announced the launch of a video to educate the diabetes and hypertension health care community about the Bluetooth v3.0 technology that enables the FORA Diamond Wireless Full Care System of mobile health products to keep patients confidently connected to their network across the mobile device of their choice. FORA Diamond devices will upgrade to Bluetooth Low Energy v4.0 by late 2014.
Bluetooth technology has transformed the medical device industry and ForaCare has been at the forefront of that trend by integrating the technology into the FORA Diamond Wireless Full Care line of products for a fully immersed wireless experience for patients and health care providers. Bluetooth offers mobile connectivity and autonomy from desktop systems and the increased demand for wireless compatibility will encourage more companies to integrate the technology into their solutions and services. ForaCare is proud to represent the empowerment that Bluetooth integration solutions offer busy, on-the-go patients who want to easily access and upload test results and analysis for tracking and sharing.

The FORA Diamond Wireless Full Care System is designed to enhance the patient experience by increasing autonomy in self-testing. The innovative product suite includes the Diamond MINI blood glucose monitor, the Diamond CUFF BP blood pressure monitor, a 2-in-1 blood glucose and blood pressure monitor, thermometers, a pulse oximeter and a Bluetooth-enabled Weight Scale W310 for both weight and BMI. The popular Diamond MINI works in unison with the iFORA app that enables easy blood glucose sharing across Android, iOS, Blackberry and Windows Phone devices. Patients can also upload their data directly to their health care provider via the FORA web-based TeleHealth solution that can be customized per doctor’s needs.

“ForaCare is proud to serve as a game changer in the industry, offering patients the freedom that comes with wireless mobility, “stated Ty Minh-Tan, CEO of ForaCare. “Being able to access and transmit data from a wireless device means that patients are no longer tethered to desktop wired systems and can instead explore and enjoy more of what life has to offer.”

ForaCare is dedicated to offering the highest level of innovation without compromising safety or precision. Aside from Bluetooth wireless, ForaCare integrates Irregular Rapid Beat (IRB) technology to detect pulse irregularities, Automated Averaging (AVG) technology to eliminate single testing discrepancies, and Advanced Superior Sip In (ASSI) test trip technology for enhanced test precision. ForaCare blood glucose monitors also meet ISO 15197:2013 measurement standards and blood pressure monitors are tested in accordance with ESH 2010.
