LiveMetric played a central role in the discussion and both professors Uriel and Bakris commented that the LiveMetric Band can indeed transform the care of hypertensives by providing physicians with a much more comprehensive and detailed picture on each patient’s blood pressure measurements, 24/7. “The discussion was enlightening” said Ms. Kelly Benning, LiveMetric’s VP Sales and Marketing, who also tool part in the discussion. “What became clear is that continuous, non-invasive monitoring of blood pressure can be instrumental in getting blood pressure under control and in early detection of various chronic CVD conditions.”
