iHealth Wins at the Concours Lepine in Paris

iHealth Wins at the Concours Lepine in Paris

Paris, France - May 9, 2011 - iHealth, the dock that transforms your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a blood pressure monitor won four major awards last night at the Concours Lépine in Paris at a glittering ceremony under the patronage of Mr. Nicolas SARKOZY, President of the French Republic.

iHealth not only received the Gold Medal at the Concours Lépine 2011, but also the Medal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the OSEO Innovation Award and the Medal of the French Society of Sports Medicine. For Uwe Diegel, inventor, the Concours Lépine prizes are the supreme acknowledgement of long years of research and development. “For the last 15 years, I have developed new technologies for the rapid diagnosis of arterial diseases, and I’m just really glad that iHealth meets public and medical expectations. By identifying how daily activities affect vital signs such as blood pressure and pulse, people become more proactive about their personal health. To be the winner of the Concours Lépine 2011 is an important event for us because it underscores the importance of hard work and long-term research and development “.

Since its launch in January 2011, iHealth has accumulated honors, receiving the award for best new Apple application in Las Vegas in January and the prestigious Red Dot industrial design award in Germany in April.

How does it work?

iHealth is a plug-and-play docking station allowing quick and easy installation of the App. The user can then simply place blood pressure cuff on his arm and place the iPhone/iPod/iPad on the dock to start a measurement. This intuitive system makes measuring blood pressure far easier for older people.

The iHealth application includes a user-friendly interface with data and graphics that allow the multiple users to view their blood pressure, to follow it over time, and to make reports. Users can easily access previously recorded data, rearrange it by date or time of day and create custom graphics and reports of the evolution of their arterial health. Users can also instantly share their results with their doctors or relatives.

Regular monitoring of blood pressure in a relaxed environment gives users more reliable information on the status of their cardiovascular health. What is more important is that iHealth - for the first time - reveals trends and fluctuations in blood pressure and allows users to easily share this information with their doctor.

Availability and Pricing

iHealth is available on http://www.ihealth99.fr for € 99.99.

The iHealth application is available for free on the App Store or on http://www.iTunes.com/AppStore
