The blood pressure monitor has a one-size cuff. It adapts to any wrist circumference from 14 to 19.5 cm.
Blood pressure can be affected by the position of the device and by your physiological state. It is very important to keep your wrist at the level of the heart throughout the measurement.
- Sit comfortably, legs uncrossed, feet flat on the floor.
- Stay still while the measurement is being taken.
- Place your hand, palm facing upward, in front of you and wrap the cuff around the bare wrist, 1 to 2 cm below the fold of the wrist.
- It is recommended to place the blood pressure monitor storage box under your arm to support it and keep it at an optimal height throughout the measurement (at heart level).
Measure on the right wrist
It is possible to take measurements on the right wrist. To optimise measurement accuracy, you must turn over the blood pressure monitor as shown below.
