BpTru BPM-200

Device Model:BPM-200

OBL: BpTru (Suspended?), Unit 1, 1850 Hartley Avenue Coquitlam, BC Canada V3K 7, CANADA.

OEM: VSM MedTech Ltd. (Suspended?), 9 Burbidge Street, Coquitlam, British Columbia V3K 7B2, CANADA.

Measuring functions:Blood pressure
Primary Client Use:Intended for professional use
Measurement Site:Upper Arm
Measurement Occurrence:Single and repeated measurements
Description: The BpTru BPM-200 is a clinically validated automatic blood pressure monitor. Measurements are taken from the upper arm and it is intended for professional use. This device is now obsolete.

While the technology used in the BpTru BPM-200, to measure blood pressure, has been declared as being equivalent to that used in a clinically validated device, no evidence has been published to show that the devices have been compared according to a protocol compliant with (EU) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4.

Measurements from the BpTru BPM-200 are compared to those from the Microlife Watch BP Office, though not in a formal validation.

Validation Publications for Equivalent Devices

Note: This is a provisional list, as equivalence according to EU Regulation 2017/745 (e.g. MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4) is not proven. Accordingly, these publications are not used in the assessment of star-ratings.
