What is the Betterlife Blood Pressure Monitor?
The Betterlife Blood Pressure Monitor is a clinically validated blood pressure monitor that can also detect if the user has an irregular heartbeat. Lightweight and portable, the device can be carried out and about so users can take their blood pressure wherever they are.
How do blood pressure monitors work?
A device is cuffed around your arm at a height roughly level to your heart. When activated, the cuff inflates, briefly cutting off the blood flow to your arm before relaxing again. During that process, the monitor records two measurements: systolic and diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure occurs when your heart beats and pumps blood through the arteries, while diastolic pressure is measured when your heart is resting and filling with blood. Both are recorded to make an accurate measurement of your blood pressure.
Do I need a blood pressure monitor?
If you have a history of either high (hypertension) or low (hypotension) blood pressure, your doctor may recommend purchasing a blood pressure monitor so you can keep an eye on it at home. The Betterlife montor also has an indicator based on World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines, so you’ll know if your blood pressure is in the right region.
