There appears to be no peer-reviewed clinical validation information available on the technology used in the GE Tonoport V to measure blood pressure. However, this device appears to be very similar to a validated device by the same (OEM) manufacturer but equivalence needs to be proven according to a protocol compliant with (EU) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4.
