Caretaker Medical has received CE certification for Caretaker4® wireless Continuous Non-Invasive Blood Pressure (CNIBP) and vital signs monitoring.
Caretaker 4 is recognized as an FDA-Cleared wearable vital signs monitor for measuring ICU Quality Continuous Beat-by-Beat Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, SP02 and Body Temperature. Winning the CE Mark registration now allows the company to immediately expand its global sales and distribution efforts.
The Caretaker4 helps streamline clinician workflow and improves patient comfort and safety with its simple to use Continuous Blood Pressure and vital signs without the need for bulky external arm cuffs. In addition, Caretaker 4 enables robust integration onto OEM solutions, including Philips IntelliVue monitors with its ability to send patient data to other monitoring platforms.
“The Caretaker4 wearable vital signs device sets a new standard in monitoring patients’ Continuous Blood Pressure and vital signs, either in hospital or remote monitoring situations. Caretaker has clear benefits over traditional intermittent spot check methods, offering a clear alternative to invasive arterial catheters or expensive bulky vital signs monitoring equipment. The CE compliance of Caretaker4 is another important stage of growth for Caretaker Medical and allows further expansion into the key EMEA and APAC markets,” said Warren Kressinger-Dunn, Managing Director EMEA APAC Regions.
