iHealth Dock and App lets you monitor your blood pressure from the comfort of your own home

From time to time, we all wish we had the necessary devices that would help us keep track on our health from the comfort of our own homes. Especially when it comes to taking ones blood pressure, which a lot of us get told to do by the doctors.

The iHealth Blood Pressure Dock looks like any other iPhone/iPad charging device, but accompanied with the Blood Pressure Monitor app, it is the blood pressure test of the 21st Century. iHealth simplifies the act of taking your blood pressure and sending it through to your GP.

It comes with a blood pressure arm cuff that can be detached and stored when you’re not using it. Just download the app – a quite colourful and easy to use one – from the iTunes store and you’re set to go. Place the blood pressure cuff on your arm, wait for the familiar squeeze, and wait for lots of useful data to come through to your phone or pad.

The app lets you see your testing process in motion, keep track of your readings which by the way are displayed in easy-to-read graphs, and with the click of a button you can share them with your friends, family and GP via email.

The iHealth dock is available from iHealth99.com for $99.95 and the app from iTunes (free).
