Fora Care Suisse AG Signs Deal with Truworth Health Technologies to Launch Diabetes and Home Health Care Products in Indian Market

Fora Care Suisse AG located in St. Gallen, Switzerland announced today it is partnering with Truworth Health Technologies Pvt Ltd, based in Mumbai, India to bring Fora Care’s Diabetes and Home Health Care products to the Indian market. The deal was signed via memorandum of understanding to provide exclusive distribution rights for the Indian market to Truworth.

ST. GALLEN, SWITZERLAND, March 27, 2013

Fora Care Suisse AG is an established supplier of innovative and secure healthcare products internationally, with expertise in providing reliable and consistent diabetes health monitoring solutions. Truworth Health Technologies is India’s leading health and wellness management company, providing products for biometric screening solutions, and mobile and cloud-based health and chronic disease management solutions in the space of mHealth, Tele-health and health informatics. Together, this distribution partnership provides extensive reach for Fora Care into the Indian market.

Recent research figures have suggested that about 61 million people are diabetic in India – the largest population of diabetes patients in the world.

“More people suffer from diabetes in India than in any other country and this is a situation where we, industry leaders, should devise a strategy to help prevent the continued increases of the disease in that population,” said Ty-Minh Tan, CEO of Fora Care Suisse AG. “We should also develop a strategy to help health care providers manage the current diabetic Indian population with a robust mechanism powered by advanced technology and engagement initiatives. To that end, we believe our diabetes care range of home health devices is among the best in the world and together with Truworth Health and their connectivity solutions, we are well positioned to meet the challenge.“

“The key to our success is realizing that devices alone cannot yield the desired results and connectivity alone cannot reach the objective – it’s the combination of stellar products in both critical areas and the important constant and successful engagement of patients with this technology that will bring change and better health to the people of India and around the world,” added Tan. “We are pleased to partner with Truworth Health to penetrate the Indian market’s pharmacies, hospitals and physicians who treat diabetes (diabetologists).”

“In India, the preventive healthcare market, especially with respect to the diabetes management segment, is experiencing a complete overhaul as technology solutions are creating an ecosystem with a holistic approach. It goes beyond people just measuring their blood glucose,” said Rajeish Moondraa, managing director and CEO of Truworth Health. “Our strategic collaboration with Fora Care allows us to offer a comprehensive mobile-enabled diabetes management solution. Together with Fora Care’s blue-tooth enabled devices, and smart feedback, we can provide opportunity for timely interventions by specialists in a single package. This suite of products provides unique and simple-to-use solutions so pharmacies, hospitals and diabetologists can enable their patients to have better outcomes.”

“We sought to provide quality products with the latest technology and best price proposition in the premium category. Fora Care was the obvious choice in the marketplace. Together with Fora Care, we can create a robust distribution network in India providing opportunity for the wide range of Fora Care products across India”, Moondraa added. “We are proud to be associated with Fora Care in India and we stand committed to make quality, patient-friendly diabetes management products that provide complete mobile solutions.”

FORACARE SUISSE AG LAUNCHES BLUETOOTH ENABLED SINGLE-DEVICE SMART DIABETES, BP MONITORS

Contact: Elena Birrer Elena.birrer@foracare.com +41-71-220-1001
[ September , 2011]

ForaCare Suisse AG located in St. Gallen, Switzerland announced today the launch of a Bluetooth enabled innovative, smart single-unit devices for combined blood glucose and blood pressure (BP) monitoring.  One device, the Comfort Pro GD 40, is approved for use by medical professionals and the other, Duo Ultima D40b, is being made available directly to consumers.  Both the Duo Ultima D40b and the Comfort Pro GD 40 are validated as highly accurate by the Institute for Diabetes Technology (IDT).

The Comfort Pro GD 40 is validated according to guidelines of the IDT in Germany, while the Duo Ultima D 40 b has been validated according to the European Society of Hypertension-international protocol 2010.

It is well recognized in the scientific and medical community that people suffering from diabetes often suffer the co-morbidity of high blood pressure.  It is often difficult for patients to manage both medical problems due to the bulkiness and complications associated with using multiple devices to manage the conditions. 

“We are proud to offer these two new tools which continue the excellence of Fora Care technology by delivering smarter, faster and easier products that are highly accurate as well as budget-friendly,” said Ty-Minh Tan, CEO of Fora Care.

The new consumer device, Duo Ultima D40b, makes it possible for patients to self-monitor as well as track their conditions to better control them.  There is significant evidence that patients who monitor their chronic conditions have better glycemic control, leading to improved therapy outcomes and lower risk of long-term complications.   

The Duo Ultima D40b the Blue tooth enabled device may also used by medical professionals to provide measurement from an adjacent room, helping patients avoid “white coat” or unmasked hypertension.  The device provides a unique inflation technique that is more comfortable for patients when measuring BP because it uses an inflation mode to measure BP levels instead of the traditional deflation mode. Fora Care’s BP and blood glucose meter guides patients and features easy-to-use technology include a built-in voice-read out talking function that makes monitoring simple and increases patient understanding of each important reading.  The device also features an easy-to-see read out on a big screen with large buttons. To accommodate patient needs for frequent testing, high usage batteries are also included with the unit.  The device is specially suited for use in telemedicine studies and for remote health monitoring. 

The professional model, Comfort Pro GD 40, provides a budget-friendly device that can facilitate a wide range of patient-type monitoring adjusting easily to accommodate newborns, children, adolescents and teens, adults and geriatrics.  Unlike traditional diabetes monitors used by professionals, the device provides accurate measurement without the requirement of a special temperature range.  The device’s form factor makes it comfortable to use and it is well designed for versatility from the out-patient setting to the hospital bedside.  The device’s back display has large, white digits making it easy to read in difficult lighting situations. Diabetes strips are easily removed from the device using a strip ejection function much like an ink pen.

Fora Care provides flexible solutions to bridge gaps among medical devices including glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, and thermometers to transmission gateways and the Internet-based backend system.  FORA technology has embedded wired or wireless modules (including ZigBee and Bluetooth) and provides corresponding home gateways to overcome transmission barriers that patients face with other telehealth technologies.
