Medaval only awards a star rating to validated devices and the Star rating policy for BPM devices is:

Medaval’s registry of devices filters clinically validated devices from non validated devices and or from devices for which it was not possible to find evidence for a reported validation study.

Currently over 3,500 devices available in the market place are listed in the registries for Blood Pressure Monitors, Blood Glucose Meters and Pulse Oximeters.  

Over 88% of all devices have never been tested for accuracy in accordance with a standard protocol.

However, only 4% of those that have undertaken a clinical validation, have done so within the last 10 years.

A Medaval Certified device is one that has been scrutinised from scratch

  • to ensure that a suitable protocol , meeting current standards, was used,
  • to ensure that the protocol was followed correctly and
  • to ensure that the measurement technology satisfied the passing criteria.

The Best Blood Pressure Monitors are Clincially Validated Monitors.
