Medaval’s registry of devices filters clinically validated devices from non validated devices and or from devices for which it was not possible to find evidence for a reported validation study.
Currently over 4,000 devices available in the market place are listed in the registries for Blood Pressure Monitors, Blood Glucose Meters and Pulse Oximeters.
Over 88% of all devices have never been tested for accuracy in accordance with a standard protocol.
However, only 4% of those that have undertaken a clinical validation, have done so within the last 10 years.
A Medaval Certified device is one that has been scrutinised from scratch
- to ensure that a suitable protocol , meeting current standards, was used,
- to ensure that the protocol was followed correctly and
- to ensure that the measurement technology satisfied the passing criteria.
The Best Blood Pressure Monitors and Blood Glucose Meters are those that are Clinically Validated Devices.
