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.
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.
From our findings, it would appear that the majority of online sales are now going to non validated devices.
