ok it isnt a great product, but seems a good product. plus he mentioned Llandudno so... lol
#2
So why is this being voted cold?
It seems to be a good price. ( especially if it's nationwide)
It seems to be a good bit of kit.
So where is the problem, or where is the link to something better?
#3
Seems a good idea to me.

Stuff like this probably does more harm than good. There's no way to know if it's accurate - so you could end up worrying that you're about to die, when in fact you are fine (or, that you think you're OK when you're really about to have a stroke). The small experience I've had of wrist measuring devices like this is that you can affect the results hugely simply by raising or lowering your arm. The only ones that seem to be close to useful measure b.p.on your upper arm - even then, without having the medical background to know why your b.p. measurements are what they are makes taking a single reading pretty pointless.
If you are worried about your b.p. see a doctor. If you're not worried, then there's no reason to have something like this. Avoid.

Have you ever done that when a doctor takes your blood pressure?
I bet not.
Why would you do it with this machine then. :roll:

And I suppose you have asked the doctors have you?
Could it be that the hospitals already have the older equipment installed and can't afford the more modern stuff at the moment so they have to rely on older, already paid for equipment.
If they had a bottomless pit of money, then perhaps they would be buying newer,smaller,cheaper equipment that does the same job.
Who knows.

Show me the evidence that doctors think this is freezing cold please.

I believe you are supposed to keep your hand around heart level when taking a reading.

I think the upper arm ones are the most accurate, however my dad has high BP and tells me his doctor currently uses an automatic wrist cuff one.

To know if it is reasonably accurate - Make a note of the readings the next time your doctor checks your BP, and then you'll be able to compare them with the typical readings you get from your own monitor - although your BP may be a bit higher than normal while you are visiting the doctor.

Aaaahhh, so you tried it then?
How did it compare with your conventional one that you pump up by hand while feeling for the pulse?
Was it not as accurate? Was it close?
Who paid for it? Was it you, or the practise?
If it was you, did you get your money back?

It's a shame they make all these leaps forward in technology but they can't seem to get it right.
Hopefully a mark two version will come out soon which will be an improvemnet on this one.
Please let me know when one comes out that you like. :thumbsup:

i am glad for u as it seems u have not been to a Hospital for long time .. we actually stopped using the ones which require hand pumping ... the one used in hospitals now are electronic and the only thing u do is to press a button and if u dont wanna do that u can actually get periodic readings every 2,3,510 or 15 mins ... now back to ur toy ... the difference between the wrist and the upper arm is that there are 2 arteries instead of 1 .. 2 arteries ( Radial and Ulnar ) which are differen in Diameter and position ... and you u get 2 different signals in different times and i can not beleive that u ll be able to geta reliable reading from that ... honsetly speaking here .. i would not mind this toy if it s to be used on the upper arm .. nothing personal here man ... so cheer up ... and stay away from Hospitals
