CES 2011, Las Vegas - Withings has been making some health related gear for a while now that interfaces with the iPhone. The first thing that we saw from the company was a scale that worked with an iPhone app for tracking weight loss and the scale could tweet your weight if you wanted. Withings has unveiled its latest iPhone using medical gadget at CES today and the new product is a blood pressure monitor.

The system has a white blood pressure cuff and a pump that will inflate the cuff that attaches to the sync port on the iPhone. An app running on the iPhone records the blood pressure and shows the current reading for the user to see. The readings can be stored for comparison and sharing with a caregiver that is monitoring the blood pressure of the user.

 

The Withings Blood Pressure monitor will also work with the iPad and the iPod touch. The app on the iOS device runs the Withings API that allows the sharing of the readings with Google Health and Microsoft HealthVault services. The blood pressure system will ship this month for $129.
