Lifeclinic International, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of health testing stations and automated blood pressure monitors (http://www. lifeclinic. com/index. aspx), is exhibiting its LC500 Health Station and integrated wellness management solutions in conjunction with UnitedHealth Group's Passport to Health and Well Being at the 2009 AARP Vegas@50+ National Event and Expo (http://www. aarp. org/aarp/events/Life_at_50_Las_Vegas/). The event will be held at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, Nevada October 22 - 24. Lifeclinic will be located at UnitedHealth Group's booth #1611.
Conference attendees will receive a Passport to Health and Well Being sponsored by UnitedHealth Group, enabling them to embark on an interactive excursion promoting good health and safety with free health and well-being activities and information. Attendees can present their passports to collect stamps upon completing various activities, which in turn will qualify them to receive free prizes. Each passport will have a unique barcode which can be scanned at the Lifeclinic LC500 Health Station, allowing attendees to take various non-invasive biometric tests, and their results can be saved for later tracking and management at Lifeclinic. com. Attendees will be able to securely share their data with their healthcare provider from the Lifeclinic Web site.
"Lifeclinic has a long and trusted relationship with Americans 50 years of age and older. Of the 1 million people who use our automated blood pressure machines and health stations daily, whether at their neighborhood pharmacy or place of employment, a large segment are in the 50-plus age group," said Lifeclinic's Chief Marketing Officer, Steve Halperin. Halperin added, "Lifeclinic is committed to serving this community of people, not only in providing them with free access to vital biometric data, but in empowering them to become proactive in the management of their own health and wellness. We want to encourage people to utilize our technology to make good health decisions."
Featured at the UnitedHealth booth will be the LC500 -- a wellness program-friendly health station (http://www. lifeclinic. com/lc500.aspx) that offers automated blood pressure, weight, body fat, BMI and blood oxygen tests, along with glucose meter upload capability. Additional peripheral input ports include IR (infrared) and USB for interfacing with various personal health devices including pedometers. Users can easily navigate through the LC500's interface of test options and health information via a 10.4" color LCD touch screen.
The LC500 is Internet-ready for secure, HIPAA-compliant, open source integration into most network environments and can easily interface with existing wellness applications so that all data gathered by it can be saved. The LC500, along with Lifeclinic's Web-based Group-Stat management system, can collect, track and manage real-time biometric data for individuals or in the aggregate to improve the overall outcome of corporate health programs. Users can also manage their own data from any Web browser via Lifeclinic. com. Optional features include both a magnetic stripe and barcode reader for store loyalty membership cards or employee identification badges.
