Blood Pressure Monitors are now Star Rated by Medaval

Medaval has introduced for the very first time, a scientific means of star rating Blood Pressure monitors for accuracy.

Why is it necessary to do so?..

To protect consumers from inaccurate devices.

star rating blood pressure monitors

Comparison sites such as ‘Which’, ‘Best Reviews’, ‘Consumer Reports’ etc and ‘Amazon’ and ‘Alibaba’ and countless others, combined with the search engines sites of ‘Google’, ‘Yahoo’ and ‘Bing’ etc, means the consumer side of the medical device industry is nothing short of a lottery.

The ACCURACY,  of any medical device,  is the first and only consideration,  when it comes to making a purchase decision.

Extra features and comforts, coupled with price,  are then only a bonus.

If the device is not ACCURATE, then it is a toy, and your health is at serious risk.

The scientific community over the last 25 year or more, have done all the hard work for the consumer.

The science is there, its called Clinically Validated Devices, and if it’s not Clinically Validated,  then it is not proven to be accurate. It’s as simple as that.

From last month, we STAR RATE all clinically validated blood pressure monitors (BPM’s) from 5 stars down, with a special emphasis on 3, 4 and 5-star devices.

Please see here for the criteria for our ratings. We have also added the 3, 4 & 5-star rated devices to our Device Registry landing page for BPM’s and will be rolling out the same for BGM’s shortly.
 
HOWEVER, we watermark all images on our site where no validation information can be found for a device. We further list under Assessment, categories for Non-Published Studies, and Non-Standard Studies,  as well as a multitude of filtering options.
 
This is the most comprehensive market study ever undertaken for Blood Pressure Monitors and supersedes the recent ESH study editorial, (using listings by Medaval)  Ref: Journal of Hypertension 2018,36:479-487, which had many inaccuracies.
 
We are concerned for the consumer with the proliferation of pseudo validation studies and advertisements designed to be inferred as scientific assessments. We plan to carry out further analysis over the year in order to highlight the shocking state of the market and lack of any meaningful regulation to prevent non-validated devices being sold as “clinically tested”. From our findings, it would appear that the majority of online sales are now going to non validated devices.

Where No Clinical Validation Information can be found for a range of Consumer Medical Devices, it is probably safe to say they are not accurate.

Medaval announces that where BPM devices that have ‘no validation information found’ (marked in red on this site), those devices are now watermarked with a question mark and a image from our logo.

Watermark Not Validated

We have been highlighting  Non Validated Devices and accurate devices for some time to allow for correction to the information we display and all corrections notified to us and verified have now been made.

Less than 20% of the known devices in the market place,  which we list in our registries,  for Blood Pressure Monitors, Blood Glucose Meters and Pulse Oximeters,  have been clinically validated.

Therefore there is a high likelihood, that the medical device you purchased and thought was accurate, is probably not.

Manufacturers who’s devices are not validated are encouraged to contact us for further assistance.

Consumers are cautioned against buying non-validated medical devices.

accurate certificates

Certified Accurate Blood Pressure Monitors Medica 2017.

Certified Accurate Blood Pressure Monitors awarded to 7 more Manufacturers at the recent Medica 2017 Trade Fair  in Dusseldorf. The certificates that Medaval awards are a Certificate of Accuracy for Blood Pressure Monitors that have been proven to be accurate, for a particular function, according to a specified protocol.

The validation is studied, not only for the results but also to ensure the protocol was followed correctly. Blood Pressure Monitors certified by Medaval can carry a Medaval Accurate Certificates , on its packaging, in its literature and in advertisements for that device for a period of time.
Medaval certifies the measurement technology, rather than the device itself. Medaval also provides a Comparative-Equivalence Service whereby devices that share the same technology can also carry the certification.

Currently 11 manufacturer’s have now received Medaval’s Certificates proving the accuracy of their Blood Pressure Monitors (see all in our News Section of the website)

Medaval and Accuracy

yt_icon_rgb

The accuracy of medical measurements is crucial for your health and the health of your loved ones.

Inaccurate measurements can easily result in misdiagnosis and that means that your medical treatment could be incorrect. 

Medaval rolls out its New Comparative Equivalence Service!

yt_icon_rgb

To see a video explanation click on YouTube logo

It is first a foremost a services for manufacturers.

  • Where a manufacturer incorporates identical technology in more than one device, Medaval can provide independent assessment of this claim via its Comparative-Equivalence service.
  • The Medaval Comparative-Equivalence process involves comparing every feature of the respective devices. Those features required for measurement technology must be identical.
  • Devices are then compared according to how they differ in other features, providing practical-use summary comparisons.
  • Comparative-Equivalence is independent of validation but, where a device is certified for a particular technology, that certification can be applied to all devices where that technology is proven to be identical.
  • Comparative–Equivalence is a full scientific study and the results are subjected to peer review.
Medaval Launches its New Website

Medaval Launches its New Website

Medaval Launches its new Website with details on 2,450 blood pressure monitors, 596 blood glucose meters and 152 pulse oximeters, at medaval.ie and hosts, by far, the web’s largest database on these medical devices and is an invaluable source of information for both the public and professional institutions.

Medaval stresses the importance of accuracy and provides several lists of validated blood pressure monitors, for a wide variety of requirements, and a list of blood glucose meters. While most users take accuracy for granted, the reality is that only 17% of blood pressure monitors and 9% of blood glucose meters have had their measurement technology validated, according to a standard protocol, as published on PubMed, the primary database for medical publications. No such publication could be found for any pulse oximeter.

Even these low figures hide the fact that many of these devices have been on the market for some time and were validated according to protocols that are now obsolete and replaced by protocols with stricter accuracy criteria.

Medaval launches their own Certification of Accuracy to provide both private and professional users of a guarantee of proven accuracy according to current standards. To achieve this certification, validations must be carried out exactly as required under the relevant protocols and fulfil the criteria. They hope that their single mark will provide a simple way for consumers to recognise accurate devices. With so many different CE, ISO, FDA and other marks for different functions and device types, not to mention spurious and misleading terminology on some packaging and advertisements, it is difficult for any user to know whether a device is accurate or not.

The simplicity of the Medaval stamp will, hopefully, over time provide users with a single indicator of medical device accuracy. Given the percentage of devices listed as validated, the caution they provide “Health care professionals, patients and consumers are cautioned against using any medical device that has not been tested correctly for accuracy” is chilling. The reality is that, if you are using a medical device, the chances are very high that it has not been tested properly for accuracy and that the values you have been assuming are correct may not be so correct after all.

It only takes a few minutes to check your device on their website and full validation information is provided on each one. You can even download the manual, if you need it. They have an excellent filtering and search system to help you find your device easily and speedily. If it is not validated, please send a query. Medaval will collate all queries and present them to the Manufactures.

Medaval Certificates of Accuracy

Medaval Awards for Blood Pressure Monitors

Medaval awards for Blood Pressure Monitors its first Certificates to 3 manufactures of Accurate Devices

at the recent European Society of Hypertension (ESH) conference in Milan 2017.  The certificates that Medaval awards for Blood Pressure Monitors are a Certificate of Accuracy for devices that have been proven to be accurate, for a particular function, according to a specified protocol.

The validation is studied, not only for the results but also to ensure the protocol was followed correctly. Devices certified by Medaval can carry a Medaval Certification of accuracy, on its packaging, in its literature and in advertisements for that device for a period of time.
Medaval certifies the measurement technology, rather than the device itself. Medaval also provide a comparative-equivalence service whereby devices that share the same technology can also carry the certification.
