Homegrown Indian mobile handset brand, Lava International Limited, has announced the launch of its latest feature phone – Lava Pulse. It is said to be the first-ever feature phone in the world to have a heart rate and blood pressure sensor.
Moreover, Lava also claims that Lava Pulse’s sensor readings have accuracy similar to present electronic Heart Rate and Blood Pressure measuring digital devices. However, the company says that it is not a substitute for a medical device.
This unique feature enables its user to measure their heart health in just a few seconds. Users need to place their fingertips on the pulse scanner, and it will display their heart rate and BP readings data immediately on the screen.
There is also an option to save readings data on the phone itself for future reference. Users can share these readings with others through messages.
Commenting on the launch, Tejinder Singh, Head- Product, Lava International, said, “Thousands of Indians die due to cardiovascular diseases every year. While early detection can save a lot of these lives, there’s still a large chunk of our population which lacks basic medical health facility. Lava Pulse is a solution, made to empower Indians to screen and monitor, who don’t have access to or cannot afford the high cost of regular heart health check-ups. As an Indian Brand, it is our constant endeavor to provide meaningful solutions to our customers, especially in the current anxious environment. With Lava Pulse, we are taking a big step to push the boundaries of innovation in Mobile Phones.”
