ABOUT CLINICAL VALIDATION:
What is Clinical Validation for a Blood Pressure Monitor?
One of the most common questions we hear is “What does clinical validation mean?”. When you see a “Clinically Validated for Accuracy” symbol on a LifeSource product, it means that the product has been thoroughly tested and has stood up to the medical industry’s world-class protocols.
In recent years, physicians have come to see the value of monitoring blood pressure at home to compliment treatment of their hypertensive patients. One of the most important considerations when home monitoring is recommended is the patient having access to accurate devices with validations performed under strict protocols. At LifeSource, because we are confident in the accuracy of our devices and the ability to be able to fulfill the strict requirements of healthcare professionals, all our blood pressure monitors are rigorously tested and validated independently to meet clinical standards.
The clinical validation tests verify the accuracy of the device according to certain criteria, like whether they have high, low, or normal blood pressure, and pre-existing diseases. Essentially, this means that the blood pressure monitor has been confirmed to give accurate and reliable results.
This helps give physicians, healthcare professionals, and people taking their measurements at home confidence that they’re using a reliable device – no matter if it’s used in a healthcare facility or the comfort of your living room.
