Who said the life of a Geek is easy ? Well not me !
And as viruses are not only reserved to Windows OS here is a bit of healthcare news that can’t do us any harm.
(From official press release)
The Omron Healthcare Co., Ltd announced that its i-Temp digital thermometer (model MC-670-E), which will debut in Europe this October, won a Gold Award at the iF Product Design Awards 2007. In addition, the Company’s SpotArm i-Q132 digital blood pressure monitor (model HEM-1010-E), to be launched in the region this June, was recognized with a general prize.
The prize-winning thermometer is the European version of model MC-670, which went on sale in Japan in November 2004. Sharing many features with the MC-670 – a flat tip that allows users to hold it comfortably in the armpit, a large, easy-to-read LCD and a sleek body that fits easily in the hand – i-Temp will be released in Europe, the Middle East and Africa this October. The only gold winner in the Medicine/Health care category, i-Temp was highly regarded by iF judges for its large LCD, which is designed for easy reading by users of all ages.
The SpotArm i-Q132 digital blood pressure monitor is the European version of a model that was released in Japan in September 2006. Featuring a cylindrical cuff ergonomically designed to ensure that users maintain proper posture for accurate measurement, SpotArm i-Q132 can record blood pressure data taken in the morning and evening to calculate an average value, helping users detect ‘morning hypertension’.
Thanks to OMRON for these excellent products.
