CES is back in Las Vegas this year, and with that comes a slew of new product launches. The consumer technology event now has its own digital health track with a number of new companies and established names presenting and introducing new products.
Read on below for MobiHealthNews’ list of CES 2022’s product announcements (and check back throughout the week as the reveals keep rolling in).
Omron Healthcare announced a new remote patient monitoring tool and connected blood pressure monitors. Called VitalSight, the tool is designed to help individuals manage hypertension by sharing data to boost engagement and treatment. The VitalSight kit includes a connected blood pressure monitor and a “data hub” where data can be shared with patients and physicians.
“VitalSight engages patients more in their hypertension management. This service securely shares accurate patient data with the patient’s care team and provides clinically relevant information that evolves treatment.
“Physicians who immediately adopted VitalSight are already telling us they are gaining greater insights into their patients and noting measurable behavior change for better heart health,” said Jeffrey Ray, executive director of business and technology at OMRON.
According to the release, the tool can be integrated into a provider’s EHR and doctors can set up an automatic notification system.
Avokad is looking to help give users insight on their nutritional needs based on breath analysis. Users breathe into a nano-sensor device, which is able to measure ketones in their breath.
The company’s artificial intelligence is then able to show a ketone score and keep track of a person’s fat-burning metabolism. It also includes AI-based suggestions to help users plan meals.
Circular Ring is a connected wearable that helps track sleep and activity. It is able to analyze a person’s “bio-signals” when they are sleeping. It can also help users keep track of their physical activity and performance over time. Users can tap into the corresponding app to gain more insights about their health and wellbeing.
BBalance created a mat-based scale that is able to give users a posture score and recommendations on how to improve posture. The mat is also able to give users information about their daily balanced weight and if it is in line with their health goals. The information is sent to an app and users can choose whether or not they would like to view their weight amount.
The app also provides users with daily coaching about improving their health.

Parents are also able to use the Dream App to gather information about a baby’s sleep status and sleep over time.
