Hypertension is a pandemic. Inadequate diagnosis and control increases the risk of diseases: Stroke, Retinopathy, Nephropathy, Hypertensive Encephalopathy, Myocardial Infarction, cognitive impairment and death from cardiovascular events. Approximately 30% of the world's population is hypertensive. Single-chamber blood pressure cuffs with different measurements are available on the market. An inappropriate pressure measurement leads to miscuffing; a smaller chamber can undercuff blood pressure; a larger chamber can overcuff. This has consequences in the diagnosis and wrong treatments and millions in costs for the health system. Even if you have a very accurate, modern cuff with manometer, but without the right cuff, it is very likely that the measurement will be wrong.
MARKET NEED AND VALUE PROPOSITION: PATAGONIUM is a multi-chamber cuff for manual and digital blood pressure monitors with selective connection. This means several chamber sizes in one cuff. In only 3 steps it can be adapted to people of different physical conditions, age and nutritional status.
SOME REASONS TO CHOOSE PATAGONIUM: Universalization of blood pressure measurement. It can be used with all types of new/used manometers. Allows a special hospital organization. Prevents hospitalized patients from sharing cuffs, avoiding potential intra-hospital infections. It has means of identifying the cameras placed on the cuff and means of connection that facilitates its correct use. There is no need to change the cuff to move from one chamber to another and take the pressure. An optimized attachment system. In case of damage or deterioration, the doctor or paramedic can replace the part by themselves.
