Accurate. Easy-to-use. Portable…Different types of blood pressure monitors have their respective advantages. Because a blood pressure monitor is designed for everyday use, it’s important to choose a device that best fits your needs.
Home-use blood pressure monitors are roughly divided into two types-the upper arm type and the wrist type. These differ according to where you place the cuff when you take the measurement, but they also differ in the types of features they offer. The upper arm blood pressure monitors are available in the regular cuff wrapping type, in which you wrap the cuff around your arm yourself,and the fully automatic type with an integrated cylinder cuff in which you just insert your arm.
The upper arm type is the standard doctor-recommended device, but the wrist type monitor also has advantages, including ease of monitoring without the need to take off your jacket. This type is also compact and portable, so it is especially convenient for blood pressure measurement while you are traveling or on the go.
Whichever type you choose, there is no difference in accuracy as long as you maintain the correct posture for measurement and follow the correct procedures. So we recommend that you choose the type that best fits your usage patterns, your degree of experience in blood pressure monitoring, and other preferences.
