Introducing Qardio: Press Release
Qardio Unveils Daily-Wear, Wireless Devices for Continuous Health Monitoring by Consumers & Their Physicians at CE WEEK, Booth #20 QardioCore & QardioArm Provide Ongoing Medical Insights for Healthier Lives New York, NY (June 26, 2013) – Qardio, a healthcare technology company, today unveils two revolutionary, cardiovascular monitoring devices. QardioCore and QardioArm are elegantly designed for effortless daily-wear, continuous monitoring by those with, or at risk of developing, cardiovascular conditions, and sharing with physicians or loved ones.
  • QardioCore – Breakthrough core strap for daily wear, delivering user-friendly continuous monitoring of EKG (ECG, electrocardiogram), heart rate, physical activity and skin temperature monitoring. QardioCore’s small and practical design provides a simple solution for users: It clips on underneath clothing in seconds, automatically turns itself on and connects to a smartphone.
  • QardioArm – A streamlined blood pressure monitor device with a revolutionary design and user experience. QardioArm makes it simple and convenient to have your blood pressure monitor with you for daily measurements. The QardioArm measures systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate.
A groundbreaking solution to understanding and controlling cardiovascular health through an effortless experience, Qardio intends to transform the way people monitor their hearts and blood pressure by capturing daily-life data that can be automatically and selectively shared with their physicians and their families. By replacing snap shop readings at scheduled appointments with a steady flow of vital information gathered during daily activities, Qardio provides a significantly more personalized, convenient and cost-effective solution for monitoring cardiovascular conditions than traditional technologies. “Instead of having to adapt your life to sensors and medical devices, you now have a medical tracking system that fits effortlessly into your life. We have created technologies and solutions that make healthcare personal, the way it should be, and we are very excited by the impact that this can have on the lives of many people,” said Marco Peluso, CEO of Qardio. QardioArm and QardioCore connect wirelessly to your iOS device and the Qardio secure, integrated digital platform. Data is uploaded automatically and can be shared with your doctors and loved ones. The data is accessible on Qardio’s consumer iOS app and a doctor’s dashboard, both of which automatically translate it into engaging and understandable charts for an in-depth picture of the wearer’s cardiovascular health. “We want to change healthcare with preventive solutions you effortlessly wear,” said Rosario Iannella, co-founder of Qardio. “With a clearer understanding of how our bodies work on a daily basis, we empower ourselves to live smarter. With extended monitoring, physicians can leverage richer data to potentially make better and earlier assessments.” Qardio envisages the products will be available later this year.
  • QardioCore and QardioArm will be on display and available for demos at CE Week, Booth #20, June 26-27th. Co-founders, Marco Peluso and Rosario Iannella, will both be available for interviews throughout the show and Marco will be participating in the Digital Health Summit panel, “Sensors Uncensored” on June 26th at 2:50pm.
