Microlife developed devices and solutions for clinical practice

Microlife’s mission is to improve hypertension diagnosis, treatment and long-term monitoring.



Facilitating the implementation of guidelines

Implementing new blood pressure measurement protocols as recommended by the leading hypertension societies (ESH, AHA) can be a major challenge for busy physicians and patients. Microlife has embedded these recommendations into all WatchBP devices. By automating many of the recommendations, WatchBP devices reduce time and efforts and increase accuracy for physicians and patients.

Patient classification for advanced diagnosis and treatment

Analysis of patient’s blood pressure data collected with WatchBP Office (office) and Watch BP O3 and Home  (out-of-office) lead to the classification of patients in different groups:  normotension, sustained hypertension, masked hypertension, or white coat hypertension. With this information, physicians are prevented from erroneous diagnosing, leading to higher hypertension control rates and better patient outcomes.
