About the services
Depending on the programme, one or more different readings are performed every day. With cardiac rehabilitation it is all about the improvement of physical fitness, with activities and the pulse being registered. With heart failure, the weight is measured daily and the blood pressure can also be measured.
HC@Home uses clinically validated sphygmomanometers and scales. The sphygmomanometers meet the directives of the European Society of Hypertension. The heart rate monitor communicates, just like the sphygmomanometers and scales, via Bluetooth with a programmed smartphone. Because of the use of wireless equipment, patients can use it everywhere and work on the improvement of fitness in their own environment.
Reading data is sent to a secured website via the smartphone and it is there that they are available for both the patient and their healthcare professional. HC@Home is used as part of a treatment and helps patients actively work on their health at home.
