Assessment:

The technology used in the iHealth Track (KN-550BT), to measure blood pressure, has passed in a clinical validation study, in a pregnancy population, according to a recognised standard protocol, as published in a peer-reviewed publication. It has also been declared as being equivalent to that used in a clinically validated device but 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.

The reference device used was the Omron M3 Intellisense (HEM-7051-E). However, this is a major and fundamental violation of the protocol requirements. Despite its claims, this study is simply a comparison of two devices and cannot be considered as a validation according to the ESH-IP protocol.

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.
