    5. Please maintain your position during the measurement and don‘t speak or move.
    6. When the measurement is complete, the arm cuff completely deflates. Your blood pressure and pulse rate are displayed.

  • Problems and limitations
    • Don‘t eat, smoke, drink, bathe or do any high impact sport within half an hour before measuring. 
    • In order not to distort the result, it is important to keep still during the measurement and not to talk. The display will show an icon, if the body moves when measuring. Please measure again or it will show inaccurate results.
    • Before every measurement, relax for about five minutes – otherwise there may be divergences.
    • In order to ensure comparable values, always measure your blood pressure at the same time of the day.
    • If you want to perform several measurements on the same person, wait five minutes between each measurement.
    • Cardiovascular diseases may lead to incorrect measurements or have a detrimental effect on measurement accuracy. The same also applies to very low blood pressure, diabetes, circulatory disorders and arrhythmias as well as chills or shaking.
       
  • Further information
    • You can perform the measurement either sitting or lying down. Always make sure that the cuff is on a level with your heart.
    • To carry out a blood pressure measurement, make sure you are sitting comfortably with your arms and back leaning on something. Do not cross your legs. Place your feet flat on the ground.
    • For a detailed classification of the measurements, please use the classification table by the WHO provided in the instruction leaflet.
