A&D Medical announces mHealth partnership with Tactio Software

SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwire – Dec 5, 2011) - A&D Medical has joined Tactio Software, integrating A&D Medical devices with Tactio TargetWeight PRO application for iPod Touch, iPhone & iPad, together providing you a complete home health system. The combination of A&D Medical’s monitoring devices with ANT+ wireless technology and Tactio TargetWeight PRO application provides essential feedback components in personal health tracking for activity, weight, and blood pressure. Thanks to the mobility of the application you can now track your health metrics anytime, anyplace. The data is transferred electronically from all three A&D ANT+ products to the Tactio TargetWeight application. It’s incredibly simple as there is practically nothing to do but to follow the step-by-step wizards on the iPhone screen. The A&D products include a tri-axial activity monitor (XL-25ANT), a precision personal health scale (UC-324ANT), and an automatic blood pressure monitor (UA-851ANT). Each product has an ANT+ wireless radio which can communicate to any iOS device through a Fisica Sensor Key.

TargetWeight PRO gives you a personalized health dashboard with everything you need to know, all color coded in green-yellow-orange and red so you know where you stand. TargetWeight PRO tracks your Weight, Height, Body Fat, Waist, Systolic and Diastolic Blood Pressure, Resting Pulse, LDL and HDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides and Fasting Glucose. From these it computes your Body Mass Index, Mean Arterial Pressure and Total Cholesterol. TargetWeight PRO provides a step-by-step lifestyle profile builder from which, combined with your data, it computes your Health Risks scores such as Cardio Vascular, Type II Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome. TargetWeight PRO also keeps track of your physical activity by tracking your daily steps, your workouts and active minutes. From your profile and target indicators it provides your Basal Metabolic Rate, the total amount of Daily Calories your body needs to maintain your weight, and the total amount of Daily Calories you need to reach your target weight. TargetWeight PRO does all the above and more, lets you add up to eight users, provides you the ease to add text notes, record audio notes and photo notes. You can also activate its online backup service so your data is safely stored and recoverable should you break, lose or upgrade your iPhone.

“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!” stated Michel Nadeau, CEO of Tactio Software.
