While the aneroid (mechanical) sphygmomanometer, invented by Emile Spengler, has been used by almost all health professionals since 1907, it has not changed significantly for more than a century.
The new MOBI sphygmomanometer had the ambitious goal of succeeding its big brother, the Vaquez-Laubry, and taking up the torch of innovation, which is very much part of Spengler’s DNA.
It took more than 5 years of work and testing to develop the MOBI, but in the end the work paid off as the MOBI won the prestigious RED DOT DESIGN AWARD 2019, for its design as well as for its ingenious and revolutionary conception.
At SPENGLER we don’t develop instruments to look good, but create medical diagnostic instruments so that doctors can focus on their diagnosis. The MOBI was developed with this in mind. One of the innovations was born out of the latest recommendations to adapt the cuff to the patient’s morphology. We have therefore designed the LIFELINK, a magnetic connector for quick cuff changes.
