The new blood pressure monitors are an extension of the company’s commitment to evolving its product line to meet the needs of consumers – and their care providers – who are looking to monitor key aspects of health while keeping costs low.

“We know today’s retail pharmacists are trying to address the needs of a wide range of customers – from the extremely health conscious to patients struggling to manage a chronic condition,” said Terry Duesterhoeft, President and CEO of A&D Medical.  “So before we designed this new line, we collected extensive consumer feedback. The result is what customers told us they want: an easy-to-use product that consistently delivers accurate measurements, paired with the ability to allow streamlined sharing of data with healthcare providers.”

The new A&D Medical ULTRACONNECT blood pressure monitors represent the premium end of the company's retail offering, and offer an unmatched set of features and capabilities including:

  • A sleek, tubeless design that slips easily onto the wrist or arm;
  • Light-weight, compact design allowing users to effortlessly transport the device wherever they go, ensuring they can consistently track and share blood pressure readings;
  • Smart Connect feature automatically detects and connects the monitor to the company’s A&D Connect app for unparalleled ease of use;
  • An offline, stand-alone operation, allows for the subsequent transfer of up to 100 readings to the A&D Connect app at a later time;
  • A bright OLED display to provide illuminated feedback of measurement results;
  • Multi-user support functionality for 5 users plus a guest; and
  • Robust compatibility with both iOS and Android devices.

As with existing A&D Medical WellnessConnected devices, users will be able to operate the smart blood pressure monitors with their mobile device using the company’s free companion app – A&D Connect – designed to enhance the end-user experience with engaging and easy-to-use features such as graphing, trending, unlimited memory, reminders, and goal setting.

“The new product line leverages our more than four decades of experience in designing and delivering connected products to both the consumer and healthcare spaces – which is precisely where pharmacies sit in the spectrum of healthcare delivery,” said Mr. Duesterhoeft. “We look forward to sharing the ways we can help retail pharmacists as they care for their customers now and in the future.”
