ForaCare Announces New Faster Smart Technology for Combined Blood Pressure, Blood Glucose Monitor
Company Unveils 3G version of its 2-in-1 Fora® DUO Ultima D40g
ST. GALLEN, Switzerland, February 1, 2016 / ForaCare Suisse AG located in St. Gallen, Switzerland today announced the launch of its faster smart technology 2-in-1 blood pressure and blood glucose monitor, the new 3G Fora® DUO Ultima D40g.

This upgrade to the Fora® DUO Ultima D40g dramatically improves the transmission speed and automatic upload of data by increasing the power from 2G to 3G, the fastest transmission speed available to allow for real-time tracking of blood pressure and blood glucose results anytime, anywhere.   The upgraded technology allows for more stable transmission speed and better connection performance all while requiring less energy.

Two major additional improvements include a new auto cycling mode feature that helps to automatically measure and upload a patient’s data every five, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 or 60 minutes for a period of five hours, allowing healthcare professionals a continuous record of patient results.  A new auto data transmission fix automatically checks whether data has been successfully uploaded. If it detects an error, it will resend the data in two minutes. Giving patients the assurance that their results were succesfully transmitted to their healthcare professional.

“ForaCare Suisse AG is excited to bring this new and improved 2-in-1 device to the marketplace,” said Ty-Minh Tan, CEO of ForaCare Suisse AG.  “We are pleased to provide the most advanced technology while also helping people live better by improving management of their diabetes and blood pressure.”
