Assessment:

The technology used in the Microlife BP 3AC1-1 PC, to measure blood pressure, has passed in a clinical validation study, in a specific population, according to a recognised standard protocol, as published in a peer-reviewed publication. It has also been declared as being equivalent to that used in a clinically validated device but no evidence has been published to show that the devices have been compared according to a protocol compliant with (EU) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4.
