According to Hypertension Canada, more than seven and a half million people in Canada – nearly one in five adults – live with high blood pressure (hypertension), which can lead to heart disease. In addition, the agency reports that weight plays predominantly into the equation, with a healthy weight helping to promote lower blood pressure levels.

To that end, routine monitoring of both blood pressure and weight provides the information people can use to see how the lifestyle changes they make impact their overall health and well-being.

“The combination of our new smart blood pressure monitors and weight scale will be the most technologically-advanced devices on the Canadian market,” said Terry Duesterhoeft, President and CEO of A&D Medical. “We designed the devices based on consumer feedback, who wanted easy-to-use products with wireless capability, while also delivering accurate measurements that can be seamlessly shared with healthcare providers and other caregivers.”

LifeSource ULTRACONNECT Blood Pressure Monitors
To help Canadians better track and monitor the vital signs critical to long-term chronic disease care and wellness, the LifeSource blood pressure monitors feature sleek, streamlined profiles and technology-heavy features, and offer an unmatched set of features and capabilities:

  • Virtual log book automatically stores all readings and syncs with the A&D Connect App for seamless tracking and sharing of data;
  • Light-weight, compact design allows consumers to effortlessly transport the device wherever they go, ensuring they can consistently track and share blood pressure readings;
  • Smart Connect feature which allows the company’s A&D Connect App to automatically detect and connect to the monitor for unparalleled ease of use;
  • Offline mode feature ensures blood pressure measurements can be taken without a connected phone and results will be displayed on the device’s screen. Measurements can then be uploaded at a later time to the user’s account, providing the flexibility to take a measurement at any time;
  • Multi-user support functionality for 5 users plus a guest; and  
  • Robust compatibility with both iOS and a wide range of Android devices.

LifeSource PLUSCONNECT Wireless Weight Scale
The easy-to-use scale offers a sleek, light-weight design with a wide, sturdy base that has a capacity of up to 400 pounds, and is precise within 0.2 pounds. It also includes multi-user support functionality for up to seven users plus a guest. 

Better Health Management
As with existing LifeSource devices, users can download the company’s free device companion app – A&D Connect – to use with both the blood pressure monitors and weight scale. The app was designed to enhance the end-user experience with engaging and easy-to-use features such as graphing, trending, unlimited memory, reminders, and goal setting.

The blood pressure and weight data points collected via the app are then transmitted through the user’s smartphone to his/her personal account on A&D’s secure cloud, and can then be shared with physicians and other caregivers, via email, social media, or through an A&D partner API.

“Through Auto Control Medical’s distribution channels, A&D Medical is committed to changing the way Canadians will be able to manage their health,” said Robert Burgy, General Manager of Auto Control Medical. “Our WellnessConnected product line can be used in conjunction with the A&D Connect app and other LIFESOURCE products to provide a more complete picture of overall health and wellness.”

The new PLUSCONNECT weight scale is available for sale in the Canadian marketplace. LifeSource ULTRACONNECT blood pressure monitors will be available in the summer.
