Biometric measurement devices provider A&D Medical has joined forces with Salutron to expand its consumer technology platform.

As part of the new deal, A&D Medic will add Salutron’s LifeTrak family of Bluetooth Smart activity trackers to its new WellnessConnected platform and suite of connected devices.

A&D Medi president and CEO Terry Duesterhoeft said the blending of firm’s biometrics expertise with Salutron’s pioneering wearable technology provides an opportunity to redefine the connected health user experience.

"With the integration of LifeTrak and WellnessConnected, consumers can now better manage their own health while healthcare and wellness service providers can manage their patients and members more efficiently and cost effectively," Duesterhoeft added.

The WellnessConnected platform includes devices, which provide heart rate monitoring, automatic sleep monitoring, calorie tracking and ultra-low power monitoring.

Salutron president and CEO Mike Tsai said: "We felt A&D Medical’s technology leadership, WellnessConnected platform, and commitment to delivering an expanding suite of essential health and wellness devices make A&D a great partner for Salutron and will enhance the value of our LifeTrak connected activity monitor family."
