[CES 2018] Healthcare IoT sign company Vital and Lenovo/Motorola have teamed up to launch the Lenovo Vital Moto Mod at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 today in Las Vegas. It’s described as the first integrated vital signs monitoring platform that accurately measures five vital signs, including systolic and diastolic blood pressure from the finger. The mod is paired with a Moto Z smartphone and it operates via Bluetooth and the Vital app to measure the vital signs.
The Lenovo Vital Moto Mod enables users to track their vital signs data over time and then share it with their care team. It measures heart rate, respiratory rate, pulse oximetry, non-contact core body temperature, and accurate blood pressure.
It uses proprietary finger cuff technology with advanced sensors and a novel inflatable bladder to accurately measure systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The mod is able to perform all five measurements in 2-3 minutes, making it easy for users to track these vital signs multiple times a day on the go.
All of the vital sign data that’s generated through the app is instantly stored in the HIPAA-compliant Vital app and the cloud, allowing users to track their measurements over time. The Lenovo Vital Moto Mod adds all of this functionality to the Moto Z handset without obstructing any other features like the microphone or camera.
The Lenovo Vital Moto Mod is going to be available for pruchase starting April 1st. Pricing has not yet been confirmed.
