The kit is currently in the last stages of production before going on sale, and the company anticipates that each gadget in the kit will be available to customers in the first quarter of 2022.

FREMONT, CA: Biotricity, a company specializing in medical diagnostics and consumer healthcare technologies, recently released a personal medical device kit called Biokit. The bundled home-use set includes a pulse oximeter, a digital thermometer, and a blood pressure cuff. All three devices are FDA-approved, wireless-capable, and part of the Biotricity ecosystem, an interconnectivity platform. This is the next step in the Bioflux system's evolution, where other existing tools are fully integrated to produce a complete remote cardiac monitoring solution.

"We created the Biokit to strengthen our long-term vision of supporting diagnosed cardiac patients throughout their cardiac health journey," explained Waqaas Al Siddiq, CEO, Biotricity. "Biokit is a natural extension of our Bioflux cardiac-diagnostic offering. For patients with cardiac disease, a personal medical device kit is ideal for long term monitoring. After speaking with both patients and physicians, it was clear that a product like this was an immediate need. I am pleased with how quickly we have been able to develop a solution to fulfill this customer feedback, which is a testament to the team here. The Biokit will expand our total addressable market with a tailored offering for the 18.4 billion-dollar North American portable medical device market. With Bioflux and Biokit combined, Biotricity will soon offer a comprehensive cardiac diagnostics and management product line for effective, accurate and economic long-term disease management."

The kit is currently in the last stages of production before going on sale, and the company anticipates that each gadget in the kit will be available to customers in the first quarter of 2022. The company does not expect any additional FDA filings before commercial launch because all devices have been FDA cleared.

The Biokit is a wirelessly connected personal medical device kit designed to solve problems with current home-based medical devices. It consists of the following devices, all of which are integrated into the Biotricity ecosystem and deliver near-real-time data to both the physician and the patient through the web and an App:

Biokit BP: A wireless digital blood pressure cuff facilitating patients to collect BP data.

Biokit TP: A wireless digital thermometer assisting patients in collecting temperature data.

Biokit 02: A wireless digital pulse oximeter helping patients to collect blood-oxygen data.

Biotricity Ecosystem Integration: All devices within the Biokit are seamlessly incorporated into the Biotricity ecosystem, permitting patients to track and store their data. Most significantly, this data is also stored and accessible for interim physician review and follow-up visits.
