Device Manual:
Description:
The BpTru BPM-100 is an automatic blood pressure monitor. Its blood pressure measurement technology has been proven to be accurate, with a 1-star Medaval rating. Blood pressure measurements are taken from the upper arm and it is intended for professional use. This device is now obsolete.
Assessment:
The technology used in the BpTru BPM-100, to measure blood pressure, has passed in four clinical validation studies, between general and young populations, according to recognised standard protocols, as published in peer-reviewed publications.
Recommendations:
