QardioBase: Start your day with a smile!

QardioBase is a smart scale that combines health and weight management with beautiful and innovative design. It measures body weight, body fat, muscle, water and bone composition and calculates your BMI with a number of distinctive features:

  • Friendly and Intelligent: QardioBase introduces Expressive Feedback and haptic responses for a more human experience. Step on the scale and you will be greeted with a friendly face to let you know how well you are doing against your personal goals. Vibrational signals also let you know your readings are complete and recorded for review on your phone or tablet.
  • Elegant Design and Premium Materials: Made with premium natural acrylic stone that is warm to the touch and a sleek minimalist design that complements the most elegant of environments.  You will want to showcase your QardioBase in any room.
  • Pregnancy Mode: QardioBase features a unique Pregnancy Mode that helps mothers-to-be track their progress during this exciting and happy time.
  • For Home Use or On the Go: While other smart scales can only manage a small number of users, QardioBase can operate its smart functionalities in semi-public places like hotels, spas and gyms, linking individual's data to their personal profiles.

QardioBase works with Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi wireless connectivity. It is controlled through the Qardio App and will be available in Spring 2015 with a suggested retail price of $149.  

QardioMD: Harnessing data for smarter heart health management

QardioMD is a unique multi-patient heart health monitoring tool that lowers the barriers to preventative health and increases the resource efficiencies of healthcare provisioning. QardioMD's pervasive remote monitoring has minimal impact on healthcare professionals' daily workflow, replacing most routine check-ups/office visits and helps keep patients from unexpected hospital visits. At the patient level, QardioMD enables healthcare professionals to visualize, organize and manipulate the richer and more comprehensive heart health data generated by Qardio's revolutionary sensors. At the patient group level, QardioMD enables intelligent clustering and actionable prioritization of patients. Whether in a large health organization or a single practice, QardioMD seamlessly helps monitor patients' heart health, resulting in clear benefits to patients, physicians and payers:

"We have created an ecosystem of smart, connected heart health products that fits seamlessly into people's lives. QardioMD is the physician's side of the equation: by combining richer data sets from multiple sensors and across longer time periods, QardioMD offers a powerful tool supporting the decision-making of healthcare professionals. This drives the shift towards preventative care, cost efficiency and enhanced diagnostic yields," said Marco Peluso, CEO and Co-Founder of Qardio.

QardioMD will be available to healthcare professionals starting in Spring 2015 and is designed to work alongside Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems.
