The Electronic House Call received its FDA clearance in April and will be used by healthcare professionals who manage patients with chronic conditions, such as heart disease, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and diabetes. SunTech Medical’s OEM NIBP module will provide professional grade BP monitoring in combination with the Eclipse™ D-ring blood pressure cuff to allow easy self-application for in-home use.

The Electronic House Call monitor securely transmits information to its data center making it conveniently available to each licensed care provider via a secure website.
Dayn McBee, CEO of SunTech Medical adds “We’re excited that the value of our OEM NIBP technology continues to be recognized by the home telemedicine market.
