The technology used in the Panasonic EW-BU16, to measure blood pressure, has been compared to a clinically validated device but the results of the equivalence study have not been published and cannot be verified; nor can the protocol be checked for compliance with (EU) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4.
|Medaval||None||Although equivalence to another device is claimed, this has not been tested to MDR requirements.|
|Japanese Society of Hypertension||Self-measurement (2017, 2019-2020)||Implied equivalence to the Panasonic EW-BU15|
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.
