MediGenix Large Blood Pressure Monitor Cuff has a more generous cuff size than your standard cuff. The size ranges from 22-42cm. It is made to work with the MediGenix Automatic Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor only as it's not calibrated to work with other BP monitors.
Why is blood pressure important? Blood pressure is important as it tell us the pressure when blood is pushed out of the heart and when your heart relaxes in between beats. If, for example, your blood pressure is too high, it can lead to a stroke or a heart attack and increase your chance of developing long-term health problems such as kidney disease, dementia, or coronary heart disease. By monitoring your blood pressure it can indicate if you are at risk of developing these problems and potentially prevent them from happening.
By having a more generous cuff available, it ensures everyone can monitor their blood pressure.
