The Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor is not clunky or overbearing. The reading that you get from this particular monitor is easy to understand. Many of the blood pressure monitors out there are going to use some numbers that may confuse older people that truly have to watch their blood pressure. The team that built the Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor worked hard to simply the process, whether it is a nurse doing the blood pressure reading or it is the patient doing the reading on their own.
The cuff size on this particular device is adjustable. It makes sense for a blood pressure monitor to fit on your arm. You have to know that there is no voice activated assistance that can help a patient learn how to put the monitor on. The whole thing may be lacking technology wise; competitors may be able to move ahead of the Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor in some different ways. There are indicator lights on the monitor which can give the patient a good idea of whether a reading has been completed or not. The monitor is easy to bring to a job site, so this means a user can have their blood pressure checked while at a fairly stressful job site. The blood pressure monitor can be a good measure of whether someone has to sit down and take a break.
The number of batteries that you need of 4 is not particularly excessive. Some batteries are going to come in the initial pack when you actually purchase the blood monitor. If a patient is not able to purchase the batteries on their own, hopefully, Medicare or some other program can help them with the purchasing process.
Product replacement options are available, and you will also find that there is customer support over the phone. It is troubling that a storage case is not available with the monitor, but you may be able to create your own case.
It may take some time to learn how to use the blood pressure monitor, and there is a warranty that does with some of the equipment. The fact that no USB cable or a PC link are included should surprise no one. This device is a rather bare, brass knuckles kind of device. A patient will be able to check their blood pressure in certain situations, but they will not be able to plug in the device in a hotel room for example unless they happen to create their own setup where that becomes possible.
A patient may find that the monitor is the simple kind of tool that they need in order to stay on top of things. It is a good idea to consult with a doctor in order to see whether this is the best option.
