Kyoto (Japan): Omron Corporation Limited, one of the world`s biggest medical equipment makers, has developed world`s first blood pressure analysis service named `Medical Link`.
Kohno Seiji, a representative of the system`s developer Omron Co., says: "We have got a lot of positive feedback from the user. Even a 96-years-old lady living on her own said, she didn`t face any problems while using it."
Unlike the present method, where the patient have to measure their blood pressure by themselves, and then put it down to a memo, and show it to the doctor which sometimes leads to mistakes and errors on the part of the patients, while taking the blood pressure, or during writing the results down, this service sends all the necessary data directly to the doctor by using 3G network (3rd Generations mobile network) based on which the doctor decides the treatment.
Not only `Medical Link` makes the patients` data more reliable, it also leads to a better communication between the doctor and the patient. Furthermore, due to graphs showing the measured results, it becomes easier to see the small changes in the level of blood pressure.
Japan, with a population of around 127,000,000 citizens has one third of its population suffering from high blood pressure.
Presently, 1500 hospitals and medical facilities in Japan are using this technology. Going by the experience, the company is confident of introducing the technology in the foreign markets as well.
" We will start with the presentation in Las Vegas in May and China in June. We are planning to spread our new service to all over the world." Seiji said.
This latest blood pressure analysis service made by Omron will be the world`s first connecting medical care technology.
This new style of treatment will prove to be a boon for all the people suffering from high blood pressure around the world.
