New Delhi:Nicholas Piramal India Limited (NPIL), one of India’s leading pharmaceutical companies, has launched ‘RESPeRATE’, aimed at the management of hypertension.
A patented product, based on the yogic principles of Pranayamam, it happens to be the first and only medical device cleared by the US FDA for adjunctive treatment of hypertension.
Designed as a portable electronic device that helps lower blood pressure naturally by enabling the patient to quickly harness the power of paced breathing it is backed by scientific research that corroborates that that paced breathing, if done effortlessly, can lower blood pressure significantly by relaxing the muscles surrounding constricted blood vessels.
It is the only medical device for high blood pressure treatment using patented Interactive Respiratory Pacing technology. According to an official statement released by the company it is a proven, effective, non-drug approach to lowering high blood pressure. It has no side effects and brings results within eight weeks of use.
Speaking at the launch, Swati Piramal, director, Strategic Alliances & Communications, NPIL, said, “RESPeRATE is a perfect fit within our health solutions portfolio. It complements our existing pharmacy product offerings, and we look forward to bringing our expertise to this innovative solution for hypertension in India.”
RESPeRATE is manufactured by Intercure Ltd. – an Israeli company founded in 1997 that is headquartered in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
