LAS VEGAS, January 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Qardio, a technology company dedicated to transforming the way we manage our heart health and track our wellness, is formally announcing the launch of the QardioArm at the 2014 CES show. QardioArm is a revolutionary blood pressure monitor.
SMART, BEAUTIFUL, CONNECTED
QardioArm is a smart blood pressure monitor that connects wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet. It is controlled through an app, which automatically tracks your measurements and uploads them to a dedicated cloud service where it can be shared with your family, friends or doctors.
Using QardioArm is simplicity itself. There are no buttons, no displays and no wires, just a sleek device whose design was inspired by a bound notebook. Unwrap it and it switches on, tap it and it pairs with your smartphone or tablet, press "START" and the rest is automatic.
Qardio offers a better way of tracking health that fits effortlessly into people's lives. Our devices are smart, wearable and connected: with wireless communications, integration with Apple's iOS devices, beautiful design and a delightful user experience, our products look like everyday objects that you can conveniently have with you, when and where you like. We believe with our solutions everybody can be smarter about their healthcare.
Whether you are looking for a smarter way to track your blood pressure, or you want to follow and support a loved one, QardioArm is the perfect solution.
PUTTING YOU IN CONTROL OF YOUR HEART HEALTH
"In the market today you can either buy well-designed lifestyle products that offer only "lite" data or proper medical devices that are ugly, desperately user-unfriendly and based on technologies from last century. We knew that it was possible for a device to be serious and yet beautiful and effortless," said Rosario Iannella, CTO of Qardio.
Qardio's focus is on empowering the user and giving them the information and the inclination to be engaged in managing their health and wellness together with their physicians.
LAUNCHING PRE-SALES CAMPAIGN ON INDIEGOGO
The company is launching a pre-sales campaign for QardioArm on Indiegogo to spread the message to the widest possible audience, engage with its customers and to develop a community around its products. Since launch in the early hours of 6 January, the campaign has already generated an extremely enthusiastic response. "There is a incredible demand for change: people want devices that are simpler, more friendly and connected. We are solving an old problem in a novel way and Indiegogo is a unique platform for us to interact and engage with our customers. We are just at the beginning, but we're thrilled by the response and support we are receiving," said Marco Peluso, CEO of Qardio.
Pre-ordering of QardioArm can be done via qardioarm.com on Indiegogo. During the pre-sales campaign, QardioArm will be available at $85. After the campaign, QardioArm will retail for $99.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry.
