A&D Medical, Tactio to Optimize Home Health System

A&D Medical announced that it has collaborated with Tactio Software for integrating its medical devices with Tactio TargetWeight PRO application for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad, to arrive at a complete home health system.

Michel Nadeau, CEO of Tactio Software, said in a release, “With TargetWeight PRO on my iPhone 4S, the Activity Monitor on my belt, the scale in my bathroom and the blood pressure at home, I have a complete home health system that is easy to use, that tracks it all, computes my health risks and just drives me into the healthy green gorgeous indicators. Everybody in my family wants one!”

It was revealed that the combination of A&D Medical’s monitoring devices with ANT+ wireless technology and Tactio TargetWeight PRO application offers feedback components in personal health tracking for factors like activity, weight, and blood pressure. By leveraging the advantages of mobility of the application users can track their health metrics from anywhere and at anytime. The data is transferred electronically from all three A&D ANT+ products to the Tactio TargetWeight application. The user has to just follow the simple step-by-step wizards on the iPhone screen.

According to officials, the A&D products encompass a tri-axial activity monitor (XL-25ANT), a precision personal health scale (UC-324ANT), and an automatic blood pressure monitor (UA-851ANT). Also each product comes with an ANT+ wireless radio which can communicate to any iOS device through a Fisica Sensor Key.

Users will benefit from TargetWeight PRO as it ensures a personalized health dashboard which features all details color coded in green-yellow-orange and red to indicate all parameters. TargetWeight PRO tracks weight, height, body fat, waist, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, resting pulse, ldl and hdl cholesterol, triglycerides and fasting glucose. These details help in the calculation of Body Mass Index, Mean Arterial Pressure and Total Cholesterol.

TargetWeight PRO also has a step-by-step lifestyle profile builder which works with available personal details to compute the health risk scores such as cardio vascular, type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome. It tracks physical activity by tracking daily steps, workouts and active minutes of the user, said officials.

By using the profile and target indicators, it arrives at the basal metabolic rate, the total amount of daily dalories that the user needs to maintain weight, and the total amount of daily calories required to reach the target weight. Also up to eight users can be added in the system which allows easy addition of text notes, recording of audio notes and photo notes.

Users can also activate its online backup service to keep data safely stored and recoverable in case of loss or up gradation of the iPhone.
