While the technology used in the BpTru BPM-300, to measure blood pressure, has been declared as being equivalent to that used in another device, not only has no evidence has been published to show that the devices were compared according to a protocol compliant with (EU) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4 but there is no evidence provided on a validation of the other device.

Accuracy AssessmentRecommendationBasis
MedavalNoneAlthough equivalence to another device is claimed, this has not been tested to MDR requirements.
BIHS (UK and IRL)Previous recommendation, now archivedManufacturer declaration of equivalence
ESH (Europe)Professional use for adults and childrenThe BIHS recommendation, despite the absence of the scientific evidence required by the same authors' criteria.

Device Family:BpTru BPM-100B, BpTru BPM-200B, BpTru BPM-300B (B BIHS Derivative)
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.
