Liv Health Hub
Health in the hands of the consumer.
Introducing Liv Health Hub
Liv-Connected’s mission includes a health-focused home. We would like to provide you with resources to digital health devices and other market-tested health tools that can help you optimize care at home.
You should always consult with medical professionals if questions arise, but we understand navigating the complex world of healthcare is not easy, and Liv is here to enhance your knowledge base on what's available so you can make sound and essential decisions with your healthcare provider.
How it works
When you order a Liv-connected home you can add a health care package, depending upon your needs, all in the same purchase.
Suppose you have balance difficulties, a motor neurological condition, or an elderly parent. You have the option to order an autonomous fall detection system that can be factory installed to blend in with the home.
The system will be set up by our partner WellAware Care and a text message will go to a care giver, notifying them of a fall and the location. We can provide more information throughout the home selection process to help establish peace of mind and a home that takes care of you.

✔The Truth about Blood Pressure Measurement
What the data tells us.
Be aware of errors that may falsely label you as hypertensive.
A 5 mmHg BP measurement error can lead
to an incorrect hypertension diagnosis in 84
million individuals worldwide.
Poor technique can lead to errors that
inappropriately alter management decisions
in 20% to 45% of cases.
HIGH - STAGE 1 HYPERTENSION
HIGH - STAGE 2 HYPERTENSION
Attention to the measurement process is essential or you may have a falsely elevated blood pressure.
You, the patient, who ingests caffeine before the measurement, has a full bladder, has just eaten a meal, or feels nervous (a.k.a. White Coat Syndrome) may get an elevated blood pressure reading.
Your provider inaccurately measures your blood pressure by having your arm lower than your heart level, for example, resulting in an error of anywhere from 4 mmHg - 23 mmHg.
The equipment (cuff size) may be too small or too large.
Your provider didn’t allow you to rest before the measurement, were asking you to talk or didn’t tell you to un-cross your legs.
What to Do?
Preparing correctly will improve measurement accuracy.
No eating or drinking 30 minutes before.
Empty your bladder.
Put your feet flat on the floor.
Arms at chest (heart) height.
Wear cuff against bear skin.
Validated semi-automated or automated upper arm cuff devices should be used to simplify measurement and prevent observer error
