FDA clears mobile blood pressure monitoring device

French start-up Withings, known for creating connected devices, recently was given 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its iOS-powered blood pressure monitor. The product--which is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch--records blood pressure test results via a free app, which then are timestamped and can be emailed to a patient's doctor for further evaluation. The app also is compatible with Microsoft HealthVault and Google Health, reports MobileMarketingWatch. Post
