With my husband and I being on the bigger size being able to take our blood pressure at home well was impossible. I am still on the lookout for a extra cuff but none have crossed my path yet.
Luckily Ozeri came to the rescue with a nice lower arm blood pressure monitor that works great. My husband has always had huge wrists either being on the smaller size or larger size. Most things need to be custom made for him, so it was a bit surprise to see that this cuff was able to fit him and get an accurate reading.
Neither of us has high blood pressure yet, but with our weight and getting older it, there is a good chance that could change. So we wanted to be prepared for when the time comes. Also recently we had a high blood pressure scare with my husband but now he seems to be doing better without having to have taken any medication for it.
We have this to monitor it just in case. Great to have in the home, because some medications you might be asked to take over your lifetime may need monitoring of your blood pressure on a daily basis.
What Ozeri has to say about their product.
CardioTech products offer clinically proven technology and are used by physicians and hospitals around the world. Unlike traditional blood pressure monitors that inflate to 170 mmHg or higher by default, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor is an advanced wrist cuff monitor with MWI (Measure While Inflate) technology that automatically inflates to the appropriate level (no adjustments required) while reducing measurement time. This advanced capability adds convenience and ease of use to those with conditions (such as arrhythmia) that lead to fluctuating blood pressure. With ample memory, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor stores up to 180 blood pressure readings with date and time Memory recall (90 readings x 2 users), and automatically classifies each blood pressure reading according to World Health Organization hypertension guidelines. It also calculates average blood pressure readings based on the 3 most recent readings, and detects irregular heart (Arrhythmia) for an improved understanding of your heart's health. Based on a wrist cuff design, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor is especially helpful for users with above average arm sizes and it stores compactly in a carrying case for travel. Compact, portable and simple-to-use, the Ozeri CardioTech Blood Pressure Monitor is backed by a 5 year warranty, and ships with 2 AAA batteries included, a carrying case and user manual.
