Other companies honored were Medibabble, a medical translation tool that won the prize of the Best Medical App for Healthcare Professionals, and Webicina, a comprehensive online medical resource.

Since its launch in January 2011, iHealth has reaped awards worldwide, wining the Red Dot Award for Industrial Design in Germany as well as the Gold Medal at the Concours Lepine in Paris. The innovative system allows patients to record, track and share their blood pressure using an iPhone, iPod or iPad.

Innovative edge

The crucial element in the jury’s decision was rational innovation, which clearly improves the present-day state of the art and sets the prizewinners apart from their competitors. The jury recognized such an innovative edge in the iHealth blood pressure monitoring system.

Patients who self-monitor their vital signs are 50 percent more likely to have their blood pressure under control than those who do not care for them. “Giving people the chance to take responsibility for their health is a major issue,” said Uwe DIEGEL, an expert in cardiovascular disease management. “The future of health management begins with the individual. By identifying how daily activities affect vital signs such as blood pressure and heart rate, people become more proactive about their personal health.”

A natural evolution in the world of blood pressure

For Uwe DIEGEL, head of research of Magnien, the French company behind iHealth, the creation of the iHealth blood pressure monitoring is the natural evolution of cardiovascular diagnostics. “Regularly monitoring blood pressure in a relaxed and coherent gives users more reliable information on the status of their cardiovascular health. What is more important is that iHealth - for the first time - reveals the trends and fluctuations in the data and allows the user to easily share this information with their doctor. This is what health management is all about. It’s all about making information more comprehensible so that people can use it towards a better lifestyle.”
