Midmark 626 Barrier-Free® Examination Chair

As health systems struggle to standardize care, blood pressure inaccuracy is one of the biggest areas of concern. Midmark can help.

FEATURES

Many healthcare providers are not aware of current standards for proper blood pressure measurement.1 If this isn't addressed, it leaves health systems at serious risk. 9.8% of the population is affected by overestimation of high blood pressure errors.2 Multiply the cost of treatment for hypertension by the typical patient panel size and the cost of overtreatment could be as much as $135,000 per each practicing physician.3 The impact of overmedication can also result in complications such as dizziness, fainting, exhaustion or even patient falls. The Midmark 626 is the first of its kind designed to ‭promote proper patient ‭positioning for a more accurate blood pressure ‭measurement.

BETTER BP POSITIONING

  • Easily position patients for a better BP measurement.
  • Powered movement of the back section ensures the patient's back is supported.
  • A Barrier-Free low chair height allows the majority of patients, even female patients with heights in the 3rd percentile, to place their feet flat on the floor.4

AUTOMATED VITALS

  • Connect the IQvitals® Zone device to the Midmark 626 Barrier-Free Exam Chair with the integrated IQscale® to weigh patients quickly and discreetly from the comfort of the exam chair. Then, send data to the EMR with the push of a button.

SEAMLESS CONNECTIVITY

  • The Midmark IQconnect® framework provides a seamless connection from your devices to your EMR system. In other words, it allows you to operate all of your devices and transfer data to the EMR from one, single "pane of glass"—your computer screen.
