More information at: Konsument, issue 12/2010 Custom made Having permanently high blood pressure is damaging to your health. There is an increased risk of a heart attack or a stroke, or even kidney disorders. The cruellest thing about it is that you initially don’t notice when you’re suffering from high blood pressure (hypertension). It’s not something you can hear or feel and you can often have high blood pressure for years without presenting any symptoms. ... In test: We tested 11 blood pressure monitors, including 6 upper arm devices and 5 wrist devices. Test criteria were blood pressure measurements (measurement accuracy, accuracy with repeated measurements, margin of error), handling (maintenance and battery, display and operational elements, battery use ...) and instruction manual (detail, comprehension, ease of use).

More information at: ÖKO-TEST, issue 5/2010 Calm down, blood! You can also measure your blood pressure in the comfort of your own home. Whether used on the upper arm or wrist, most of the devices tested deliver a good performance. However, the cuffs do contain quite a lot of harmful materials. In test: We tested 15 blood pressure monitors, including 7 upper arm devices and 8 wrist devices. They were rated from “very good” to “poor”. The overall quality rating was based 70% on the results of the practical test and 30% on the examination of the material. In terms of practical application, blood pressure measurements were monitored mainly by examining the degree of systolic/ diastolic pressure deviation and the percentage amount of false readings. Device operation was also tested. When testing quality and material contents, the devices were checked for the presence of PVC, PVDC, chlorinated plastics, legally restricted Phthalates as well as for other dangerous and potentially hazardous materials.

More information at: test (Stiftung Warentest), issue 1/2006 “Master monitors” - upper arm A healthy blood pressure can help you live longer. Owning a monitor enables patients to measure their blood pressure themselves. They’re easy to use, even cheap devices. But not every blood pressure monitor delivers reliable results. ‘STIFTUNG WARENTEST’ tested 20 models. Twelve were good, but two were poor: the devices from German retailers ‘Rossmann’ and ‘Plus’ gave too many false readings. Almost half of the measurements were incorrect. The special offer model from ‘Lidl’ is also a poor choice. To put this into perspective, the best blood pressure monitors deliver around 80 correct results out of 100. So a few false readings are acceptable. In test: We tested 20 blood pressure monitors, including 11 upper arm devices and 9 wrist devices. The verdict for the upper arm devices was: 7 rated “good”, 2 “satisfactory” and 2 “sufficient”.

More information at: test (Stiftung Warentest), issue 12/2010 Hardly any false readings Blood pressure monitors: there are many good blood pressure monitors available, some of them cheap. But not every device is suitable for everyone. In test: Twelve automatic blood pressure monitors for self-use were tested, including five wrist and seven upper arm devices, which take measurements using the oscillometric method. Two devices also use the Korotkoff method as well. The verdict: nine were rated “good” and three “satisfactory”. Test criteria were blood pressure measurement (measurement accuracy, accuracy with repeated measurements, margin of error), handling (maintenance and battery, display and operational elements, battery use ...) and instruction manual (detail, comprehension, ease of use, readability).

Small, digital wrist blood pressure monitors are becoming more common, as they require no special knowledge and are easy to use. Digital monitors for the upper arm are a little more cumbersome, but more accurate. Analog blood pressure monitors are becoming increasingly rare in the private sector, since few people can properly operate them.
