Assessment:

The technology used in the Remler M2000, to measure blood pressure, has been assessed, in a general population, according to a non-standard protocol.

Accuracy AssessmentRecommendationBasis
MedavalNoneWhen an evaluation is carried out using a non-standard protocol, no inference can be made on accuracy based on a standard protocol.
