A wrist blood pressure monitor is a portable device used to measure blood pressure. This device is usually worn around the wrist and the values are read by the sensors in it. The device works by compressing air into the cuff on the wrist and measuring changes in blood pressure as air is inflated and withdrawn from the cuff.
A wrist blood pressure monitor can be useful for people who need to measure their blood pressure regularly at home or on the go. This device may help monitor your arterial pressure and track changes over time. However, the performance of different devices may vary, therefore it is advised to follow the instructions for use specific to each device and refer to health professionals for assessment of readings and appropriate healthcare guidance.
