Lifeclinic International, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of automated blood pressure monitors and health testing stations, will be showcasing its latest consumer healthcare technology and its corporate wellness initiative for its retail customers at the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) Supermarket Pharmacy Conference, May 3 - 6, 2008, Table 51, Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV.
Within the healthcare sector, Lifeclinic is leading the industry in the development and promotion of technology that allows people to become proactive in tracking and managing their own vital-signs. "Our retailer customers provide our blood pressure monitors to their customers as a free service, promoting self-monitoring and wellness, while also driving that consumer traffic to the retailer's pharmacy where the unit resides. However, there's an incredible opportunity to serve a population of people who are at the store almost every day - the retailer's employees," says Lifeclinic Senior Vice President, David Read. Read continues, "Workplace wellness is a critical component of any health promotion strategy and a legitimate investment in any organization. Lifeclinic is committed in providing the programs and tools to help our retail clients meet the health and wellness needs of their employees."
Lifeclinic's latest line of automated health testing stations offer automated blood pressure, weight, body fat and blood oxygen tests. The health station's scalability allows for the integration of additional tests, such as those for sight, hearing and bone density, from multiple manufact¬ur-ers. Peripheral input ports include IR, USB and Bluetooth for interfacing and uploading data from various personal health devices such as glucose meters and pedometers.
Consumers and employees can easily navigate through the health station's interface of test options, health information, and a database of the retailer's products, coupons and discounts, via a color LCD touch screen. Optional features include both a magnetic stripe and a barcode reader for retail loyalty card programs. The barcode reader can also generate multimedia product information, allowing consumers to retrieve tailored product information for general merchandise, HBA, OTC and Rx products.
