ForaCare is participating in World Heart Day to help raise awareness about cardiovascular disease—the world’s number one killer. Cardiovascular disease affects the heart and blood vessels, and can lead to complications such as heart attack, stroke, and chest pain.

Many cardiovascular diseases end in heart failure, a condition in which the heart doesn’t pump enough blood to the body. But it’s possible for an individual to take more control of their heart health with ForaCare’s remote patient monitoring solution. Our congestive heart failure chronic disease management kit has already seen reduced mortalities, fewer hospitalizations, and lower direct costs.

The kit includes a TN’G Scale 550, P20b blood pressure monitor and Gateway device that transmits data from patients to clinicians.  

TN’G Scale 550

  • Supports up to 550 lbs
  • 30% wider than an ordinary scale
  • Low profile
  • Audible results in English, Spanish or French

P20b blood pressure monitor

  • Irregular rapid beat technology
  • Averaging (AVG) technology
  • Smart pumping function
  • Audible results in English, Spanish or Chinese

These devices automatically connect to the Gateway after every measurement so results can be uploaded to the FORA® 24/7 HealthView Telehealth System. Our software allows physicians to access results in real time and adjust medications as needed or intervene immediately in an emergency.
