ABPM-05


Since 1991, five generations of Meditech ABPM instruments has served hundreds of patients, medical professionals and researchers. While launching each new type, the previous one would be slowly withdrawn from the circulation and Meditech will still continue providing support and service to customers who have old systems. Currently, two generations of  clinically tested and validated Meditech ambulatory blood pressure monitors are in distribution, ABPM-04 as solid but cost-effective solution and ABPM-05, which incorporates the latest improvements, such as optional built-in Bluetooth module for communication with the PC.

Features and benefits of Meditech ABPM-05 and CardioVisions software:


- incorporated oscillometric technology is based on a proprietary algorithm, validated according to BHS and AAMI protocols, recommended by  European Society of Hypertension

- allows you to measure systolic, diastolic blood pressure and pulse rate over 24 or up to a period of 48 hours, using two AA rechargeable batteries

- lightweight and compact recorder unit with quiet functioning

- includes CardioVisions, intuitive, easy-to-use but powerful software

- well organized patient database and various numeric, graphical presentations of the results and medical reports created with free editing are all standard features of relating software

- flexible programming with configuration of 4 different time ranges: day, night, morning and special period provide an unlimited number of protocols to met the needs of any study

 

Basic set includes the high quality sleeve cuff with silent inflation which meets high quality standards.
