One great feature of the Pulsewave® Health Monitor system is that it allows you to connect to Bluetooth enabled health monitoring devices. This feature is currently supported only in Windows.
If Bluetooth is not listed on your device manager and your PC settings does not include Bluetooth, then Bluetooth wireless technology is not installed on your computer. Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 requires a special USB dongle supplied by Cloud DX Inc. in order for the Pulsewave® Software to communicate with a Bluetooth device. Windows 8 requires a standard Bluetooth 4.0 controller. This can be embedded in your computer or connected via USB.
Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
User has to add the Bluetooth devices to the Control Panel first before he/she can add the devices to the Pulsewave® Software.
For Windows 8 and 8.1, plug in the dongle
to the USB port in your computer so that the device driver will be installed.
Once the driver has completed installation, tap or click PC and devices, and tap or click Bluetooth. Another shortcut is to go to Search and type Bluetooth Settings to go directly to the Bluetooth settings menu.
Turn on your Oximeter or scale. When pairing on Windows 8 and 10, the Oximeter will appear under the name “Medical”. The scale will appear under the name “Samico Scales”. If prompted for a pairing code, the user should enter “0000”.
Select your device and click Add or Pair.
The newly added device will show up in your list of Bluetooth devices. Once added, the Bluetooth Oximeter device or the Scale can now be added to the Pulsewave® Software application.
Follow the Steps below for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 to add the devices to the Pulsewave® Software.
