ForaCare Suisse AG Launches New FORA Diamond Blood Pressure Cuff, Hematocrit Blood Glucose Monitor and iOS/Android Mobile Tracking and Sharing App at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) Event

ST. GALLEN, Switzerland, October 18, 2013 / ForaCare Suisse AG, located in St. Gallen, Switzerland, announced today it successfully showcased the latest in professional diabetes measurement and consumer blood pressure monitoring technology at the annual European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) meeting September 23-27, 2013 in Barcelona, Spain.

New products launched by ForaCare at the event include the FORA Diamond Blood Pressure Monitor (FORA Diamond Cuff BP) that offers enhanced patient comfort and faster measurement capabilities, the new iFORA Blood Pressure App (iFORA BP) that allows users to track their morning to night or 7/14/30 day blood pressure trends and share their progress across iOS or Android mobile devices, and the new FORA COMFORT Pro GD40 blood glucose monitor with 5-Electrode Technology, offering the highest clinical accuracy for measurement by minimizing interference from varying hematocrit levels. The FORA COMFORT Pro GD40 is recommended for hospital/clinic settings, neonatal care, gestational diabetes care and other treatments that require tight glycemic control.

ForaCare’s booth was designed to offer an interactive experience, using product demonstrations to educate EASD attendees first hand on the innovative yet easy-to-use products for diabetes and related illnesses.

“ForaCare Suisse AG is proud to say that our demonstrations of the FORA Diamond Cuff BP were so successful that several doctors expressed interest in purchasing a cuff directly off the floor,” stated Ty-Minh Tan, CEO of ForaCare Suisse AG. “Attendees also appreciated how the iFORA app analyzes trends that will empower patients to better manage their health by identifying activities that lead to glucose variations and to share and celebrate their progress over Facebook or email.”

While attendees were learning about the new product offerings, ForaCare experts also explained another important feature already implemented on all FORA and FORA Diamond strips. Advanced Superior Sip In (ASSI) is an enhanced strip technology that builds upon Superior Sip In (SSI) first introduced by ForaCare in 2011. ASSI adds an additional hydrophilic layer to the blood glucose strips, making blood sip-in speed even faster, which increases glucose test precision. Both lay users and professional users will find it easier to apply blood samples which greatly improves the user experience.

Overall, ForaCare Suisse AG showcased to the EASD audience a strong commitment to improving the quality of life for people affected by diabetes and enhancing the ability for doctors to monitor and care for their patients. Attendees and professionals who missed EASD have two upcoming opportunities to learn more about ForaCare’s products at the MEDICA World Forum in Düsseldorf, Germany in November 2013 and the Arab Health Congress in Dubai in January 2014.

Fora Care s'apprête à lancer un nouveau glycomètre mesurant le taux d'hématocrite dans le sang, ainsi qu'un nouveau tensiomètre Bluetooth pour iOS et Android, à l'occasion de la conférence de l'European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) à Barcelone (stand F.06)

Saint-Gall, Suisse, le 13 septembre 2013 / Fora Care Suisse AG, basée à Saint-Gall, en Suisse, a annoncé aujourd'hui sa présence à la conférence de l'European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) du 23 au 27 septembre 2013 à Barcelone, en Espagne. C'est en effet à l'occasion de l'exposition Fira de Barcelona de Gran Via qu'elle présentera ses nouveautés dans les domaines de la mesure professionnelle du diabète et des technologies de monitorage de la pression artérielle destinées au grand public. Fora Care occupera le stand F.06.

Fora Care présentera son glycomètre FORA COMFORT pro GD40 équipé de la technologie à 5 électrodes, qui offre les plus hautes performances en matière de précision clinique et de fonctionnement. Les mesures de la glycémie peuvent être faussement élevées ou basses en fonction du taux d'hématocrite, ce qui peut conduire à un mauvais dosage d'insuline, voire à un diagnostic erroné. Étant donné que les variations du taux d'hématocrite représentent une source importante d'erreurs dans la mesure de la glycémie, la technologie à 5 électrodes de Fora Care mesure le taux d'hématocrite, puis compense son impact sur la mesure. Elle répond ainsi aux nouvelles directives relatives au monitorage de l'impact des taux d'hématocrite ajoutées à la nouvelle norme ISO 15197:2013.

Le glycomètre FORA COMFORT pro GD40 est recommandé pour les milieux hospitaliers/cliniques, les soins néonatals, les soins ou les traitements liés au diabète gestationnel et dans d'autres contextes qui nécessitent un contrôle rigoureux de la glycémie.

Fora Care présentera le FORA Diamond CUFF BP, son plus récent tensiomètre qui permet d'envoyer facilement les mesures de la pression artérielle (PA) via Bluetooth à iFORA BP, une application mobile gratuite disponible sur les plateformes iOS (y compris l'iPhone®) et Android®. Cette nouvelle offre est une extension de la solution totale et complète Mobility.

iFORA BP suit les pressions artérielles systolique et diastolique, ainsi que la pulsation du pouls, et présente les tendances hebdomadaires et mensuelles sous forme de graphiques qui peuvent être exportés ou partagés avec la famille ou avec le corps médical. Les données numériques peuvent également être exportées. L'application permet à l'utilisateur d'associer des notes personnelles à chaque résultat et fournit un tutoriel comportant des conseils destinés à l'aider à gérer sa pression artérielle dans l'optique d'une meilleure santé.

«Fora Care Suisse AG est honorée d'effectuer ce lancement à Barcelone, à l'intention du marché européen, et de présenter ses nouvelles technologies à ses clients», a déclaré Ty-Minh Tan, CEO de Fora Care Suisse AG. «Nous invitons les médecins et les chercheurs à venir nous rencontrer sur notre stand pour discuter des possibilités d'études d'applications cliniques.»

L'ensemble des dispositifs de monitorage Fora Care sont reconnus par l'industrie comme étant très précis et capables de fournir une qualité supérieure directement aux consommateurs. Les glycomètres FORA ont été validés conformément aux exigences de la norme ISO 15197 dans un institut d'étude du diabète de renommée internationale basé à Ulm (Allemagne).

 

Les dispositifs Fora Care sont conformes aux nouvelles normes ISO et ont été validés par les organismes tiers suivants :
• Les bandelettes FORA Diamond (pour la série Diamond) sont validées cliniquement en République tchèque et en Suisse. Elles affichent l'écart prouvé de +/-15 % exigé par la nouvelle norme ISO 15197:2013.
• Le glycomètre FORA Comfort pro GD40 (avec technologie à 5 électrodes) est validé cliniquement en Suisse. Il affiche l'écart prouvé de +/-15 % exigé par la nouvelle norme ISO 15197:2013.

Fora Care fournit des dispositifs de monitorage de santé novateurs approuvés par la FDA et munis du marquage CE qui offrent une connexion simple au système FORA. Pour tout complément d'information, veuillez consulter le site Internet suivant :

ForaCare Suisse AG Launches Clinically Validated Total and Complete Mobility Line

New iDiamond and Diamond Mini Monitoring Tools Offer Sleek, Elegant Design, Superior Accuracy

ST. GALLEN, Switzerland, October 28, 2011, Fora Care Suisse AG located in St. Gallen, Switzerland announced today the launch of its Total and Complete Mobility line of blood glucose monitoring devices and tools. All ForaCare monitoring devices are validated as highly accurate in the industry and provide superior quality directly to consumers.

[October 28, 2011

The Total and Complete Mobility line (TCM) which was presented for the first time at the (EASD) in Lisbon, Portugal in September will be the focus of ForaCare’s exhibition experience at Medica in Germany in November.

The line is a solution that is now available to diabetic patients to help bridge the gap between physician’s care and diabetes self management, and to allow individual patients to have full control of diabetes management simply and easily using the most convenient method for them, personalizing self-monitoring more than ever before.

The iDiamond is the most elegant yet sophisticated glucose monitoring device offered and it requires an Apple © iPhone or iPad device. The iDiamond allows patients to monitor their health while not sacrificing access to their high technology platforms and tools. The monitor sends data automatically to health care providers at the touch of a button for remote patient monitoring by medical professionals.

The Mini Diamond provides a choice for consumers who like incorporating their glucose readings into their high tech iPhone or iPad, or any other smart phone device but want the flexibility of using the glucose monitor on its own, as well. Users can choose how and when to upload their glucose data to their health care provider.

"The Total and Complete Mobility Line raises the bar of consumer friendly devices by offering elegance, sophistication and ease-of-use all in one device. The iDiamond and the Mini Diamond don’t require patients to choose between a device that works well and one that has an attractive aesthetic appearance. Many patients carry their devices wherever they go and having one that is attractive, functional and highly accurate gives the discerning consumer the best of all worlds for diabetes self monitoring," said Ty-Minh Tan, CEO of Fora Care Suisse AG.

Both new devices make it possible for patients to self-monitor as well as track their conditions to better control them. There is significant evidence that patients who monitor their chronic conditions have better glycemic control, leading to improved therapy outcomes and lower risk of long-term complications.

Fora Care provides flexible solutions to bridge gaps among medical devices including glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, and thermometers to transmission gateways and the Internet-based backend system. FORA technology has embedded wired or wireless modules (including ZigBee and Bluetooth) and provides corresponding home gateways to overcome transmission barriers that patients face with other telehealth technologies.

FORA Blood Glucose Monitors are validated according to ISO 15197 requirements at an internationally renowned diabetes institute in Ulm, Germany.
