If you want a toy, buy this, if you want a serious blood pressure monitor buy an Omron (for example).

This measures wrist blood pressure - ever seen a doctor do that? Silly. Cold.

Maybe not a toy and a lifesaver if used correctly?:-

http://bio-medical.com/news_display.cfm?newsid=60

"The traditional way of measuring blood pressure uses a cuff that goes on the upper arm. Recently, wrist monitors have been introduced that are much smaller and easier to use than arm monitors. They also have the advantage that the same cuff size can be used in fat and thin people, because the diameter of the wrist is affected little by obesity, in comparison with the upper arm.

A study conducted in Switzerland compared the blood pressure measured by a wrist monitor (the Omron R3) with the traditional mercury sphygmomanometer measuring blood pressure from the upper arm, and a catheter placed directly in the artery, which is the 'gold standard' of blood pressure measurement. It was done in 100 patients who were undergoing catheterization of their hearts, which entailed measurement of blood pressure from inside the major arteries. It was found that the wrist monitor gave readings that were a little closer to the pressure measured directly from the artery than the readings given by the mercury sphygmomanometer.

Doctor’s Comments

This study shows that the Omron wrist monitor can give accurate measurements of blood pressure, even when it gives readings that differ from the conventional mercury sphygmomanometer. The main source of error with the wrist monitors is that the monitor has to be at the level of the heart when the reading is taken (which was not a problem with this study, because the patients were all lying flat when the readings were taken).

If you are really serious about your health buy a clinically validated Blood Pressure Monitor from an established and reputable manufacturer. (The NHS also tests and evaluates them). If you have no faith in the readings these devices are worse than useless. But if you just want a party toy... :-D (without prejudice to this particular model :))

I wouldn't go as far as recommending a specific monitor, but here is a link to the NHS procurement guide (got some useful info). :thumbsup: - http://www.pasa.nhs.uk/pasa/Doc.aspx?Path=[MN][SP]/NHSprocurement/CEP/POC/CEP08035.pdf (They also publish a guide to hospital grade monitors. - http://www.pasa.nhs.uk/pasa/Doc.aspx?Path=[MN][SP]/NHSprocurement/CEP/Critical/CEP08018.pdf) The British Hypertension Society also has a list of clinically validated monitors. - http://www.bhsoc.org/

Yes, it appears that all is above board. :thumbsup: The monitor is probably pretty OK for what it is - a "lie detector" :-D

Your best off with a cuff BP meter, wrist ones are very sensetive and can fluctuate with movement, arm position. You will be hard pressed to find any GP or practice nurse use a one off the wrist so to speak.
