Stayhealthy Inc., Tommy G. Thompson, Edward P. Bliss, John Collins Stayhealthy device performs inaccurate medical diagnosis Monrovia, California
*Author of original report: Additional Information about Stayhealthy Inc.
The following complaint was sent to the California State Department of Consumer Affairs:
I wish to bring to your attention that a new medical device is being placed in consumer locations, such as supermarkets, food courts, museums, and more. The device, called a "StayHealthy650" is manufactured by Stayhealthy, Inc., 717 South Myrtle Avenue, Monrovia, California 91016 - Tel. (626) 256-6152
The point of this email is to raise concerns about accuracy of the device, and the fact that it seems to be performing a medical diagnosis. To the best of my knowledge, the devices made by this company have not been approved by the FDA or other agency in any way, only defined as an FDA class II device, nor been evaluated by any standards organization for either accuracy or efficacy.
I am aware of at least one case where the device inaccurately identified an invidual health, when in fact he suffered from acute angina, and suffered a fatal heart attack less than a week after using the device. While there have been similar, though vastly simpler blood-pressure measuring devices in consumer settings for some years, this device goes far beyond, and in the minds of consumers is actually giving them a diagnosis or providing medical recommendations. In essence practicing medicine without license or regulation.
I strongly urge the Department of Consumer Affairs to review these devices and consider the appropriateness of these devices in consumer settings, where no guidance or interpretation is available from a licensed medical practitioner.
