Technology has revolutionized a lot in the past few years. It has done a lot of effort to help make our lives better and that struggle still continues. Everyone is taking advantage of the technology around us. The small chips present in our smart phone are a piece of amazing engineering. You can take your smart phone and make it a lab on the chip.
You can perform blood, urine or saliva tests, all kind of things (even sweat tests) on it. You can take ECG and even do ultrasounds using your smart phone. And that piece of technology can save a lot of money and time. There is so much digital technology around us that we can make the visits to doctors much more enjoyable, less painful, less expensive and more accurate. The visits to the hospitals can be even reduced. With the use of technology, people can send their test reports to the doctors at the hospitals and can even get medications delivered to their door steps.
Some people think that technology can not get in between a doctor-patient relation but the people at Qardio think it can. They have developed a Blood Pressure Monitor that works with your smart phone to give you readings and what is amazing in that? Well everyone can do it. Anyone can take blood pressure readings using this device. Qardio is compatible with both major mobile platforms i.e iOS and Android and it connects to your smart phone via Bluetooth.
How to take measurements?
QardioArm Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor will turn itself on or off automatically as you open the device. For pairing the QardioArm with your smart phone, download the Qardio app and turn on the bluetooth. Next, open the QardioArm and make a nice and snug fit on your arm. Sign up on the app to make your account on Qardio so you can sync your results between different devices. Then hold the device against the QardioArm and a pop-up will appear asking you to pair it. When done pairing, Start button will turn green and all you have to do to take your blood pressure reading is sitting relaxed and hit Start on your smart phone. It will inflate the arm cuff to appropriate pressure and then deflate it while saving the reading on your smart phone. If you’re on iPhone you can even sync this with the Health app built for iOS 8.

One of my friend bought QardioArm Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor and I have used it quiet a few times. The readings were accurate (or very close to accurate) for me. The best thing about QardioArm is that you can travel with it anywhere and it is cheap than going to a doctor and getting your blood pressure readings taken. Technologies like this can really do wonders in health care and can enable people to start living healthy lives.
You can find a lot of good reviews and bad comments bashing the technology and QardioArm, which is a great average consumer grade product in my opinion. But the technology is as good as the user. How good are you?
