Over the decades, medical devices have diversified from simplest to more complex to help patients diagnosed with different types of health issues. And, to ensure patients’ health safety doctors only recommend validated medical devices to their patients which is why It is very crucial to validate these varieties of devices to ensure authenticity and accuracy of the device. Along with approving the devices the validation also builds trustworthiness and reliability among the healthcare community & general patients all over the world for that doctors can faithfully recommend the devices. There are a number of organizations renowned for the validation process in every sector and ESH, DABL, and STRIDE BP are one of the. In accordance with it, HINGMED WBP-02A Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor also passed the ESH certification and is indexed as a certified blood pressure monitor by doctors and researchers on the Dabl, and Stride BP websites.
What is clinical validation & why it is so important in healthcare?
Clinical validation is a process where different internationally approved organizations check the BP device’s performance and accuracy according to the standard provided by the respected organizations. The devices need to undergo different types of examinations according to the standards throughout the whole procedure. The whole procedure is quite essential to any type of medical device. After performing tests on different parameters and analyzing the data, researchers come up with the result of whether the device is suitable according to the standards and can be a certified blood pressure monitor or not. If the device failed in any procedure the device will not be validated and returned to its owner.
As said earlier, clinical validation not only validated the devices but also builds trust for the certified blood pressure monitors among all the people who are using them. As organizations are internationally approved and the validation program is quite unbiased and researchers carefully observe the process so any kind of error will not occur. Hospitals and healthcare providers have deep reliability on these organizations that any medical devices with clinical validation are maintained all the standard and compatible for general use. Many times, it has been seen that patients have died because of inaccurate results as well as defective devices. That is why clinical validation brings assurance along with the relief that patients are not using any faulty devices in their diagnosis and there will be no compromise to their health.
Why are ESH, DABL, and STRIDE BP important For BP devices?
Similar to other medical device sectors blood pressure monitors have also different well-known organizations who perform the validation of all the blood pressure monitors.

On the other hand, Dabl and Stride BP are non-profit organizations established by high blood pressure experts. These international organizations have been providing guidance and educational information on the procedure & technology for evaluating our blood pressure accurately based on research evidence. Durable educational trust also provides updated information about certified blood pressure monitors on a regular basis.
