CES 2017: A&D Medical Expands Its WellnessConnected® Platform
Suite of Connected Products and App Enables Consumers to Better Manage Health
LAS VEGAS – January 4, 2017 –– For the thousands of attendees atthis year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), A&D Medical, a leader in connected health and biometric measurement devices and services, is featuring its newly-expanded WellnessConnected® platform of products and services at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year.
On display in a special CES Exhibit Suite, the expanded WellnessConnected collection features the most technologically-advanced blood pressure monitor – ULTRACONNECT – and its newest weight scale, PLUSCONNECT.
Launched initially at CES 2015, WellnessConnected is the first complete, connected health platform with built-in sharing capabilities that offer both the simplicity to meet the needs of consumers, as well as the security and precision demanded by healthcare providers.
A&D’s WellnessConnected platform combines the company’s and partners’ health monitoring devices, A&D Connect mobile app, and cloud-based personal account, to give individuals and organizations the tools to track progress toward healthy living goals. It is a complete health and wellness platform to connect consumers with their healthcare providers, for even greater insight into their health.
“Rising healthcare costs and an increase in the incidence of chronic disease are incentivizing more health conscious consumers, as well as their families, employers, and healthcare providers to find and incorporate tools that support a healthier lifestyle,” said Terry Duesterhoeft, President and CEO of A&D Medical. “Our WellnessConnected platform was developed in direct response to those evolving needs of the marketplace.”
The Wellness Connected Bluetooth devices consist of weight scales, blood pressure monitors, thermometers, and activity trackers. All devices easily connect to Bluetooth enabled iOS and Android mobile devices, and the suite of products provide diagnostic readings such as blood pressure, weight, BMI, steps taken and calories burned. That data is transmitted through a user’s smart mobile devices to his/her personal account on A&D’s secure cloud, and can then be shared with physicians, other care givers, and loved ones directly via email or social media or through an A&D partner API.
WellnessConnected Mobile App
The WellnessConnected app – A&D Connect – is designed to enhance the end-user experience with engaging and easy-to-use features such as graphing, trending, unlimited memory, reminders, and goal setting. Available free of charge through Apple’s app store and Google Play, there is also a social component, letting users share what they choose through mediums such as Facebook and Twitter.
WellnessConnected Cloud Service
The flexibility of the A&D WellnessConnected framework allows wellness and healthcare partners to customize an end-to-end solution with the A&D Connect app and cloud API. The cloud API provides a programming interface making it easy to connect to a web portal, third party cloud (cloud-to-cloud) or other back-end monitoring solutions.
“This product offering leverages our extensive experience in delivering connected products to the healthcare industry,” said Mr. Duesterhoeft. “With WellnessConnected, we can now meet the needs of consumers who may want to track multiple biometrics and are seeking better ways to track and manage their health-related goals.”
