New Continua Certified A&D devices announced

Categories: Latest News.

A&D and Continua chalk up another win-win as A&D announces that two of its Bluetooth-enabled telehealth blood pressure and weight monitoring devices have been certified as conforming to the Continua Alliance’s Version One Design Guidelines, incorporating the Bluetooth Health Device Profile and the ISO/IEEE 11073 data protocols. More information in the A&D press release.

It cannot be long before tender specifications require the use of Continua Certified devices not only to ensure future compatibility within their systems but also as a quick way of assuring a level of general technical competence, if not excellence. So it makes sense for device manufacturers to be going for this certification as quickly as possible.

For an additional angle on the development, read the Cambridge Consultants press release which says that they offered A&D “a quickly deployed, cost-effective solution to achieve complete Continua certification without a costly hardware redesign.”

It also looks as though Continua intends to maintain a list of certified products here.
