Terumo Elemano Blood Pressure Monitor

This automatic blood pressure monitor is an easy and effective way to measure one’s blood pressure and pulse at the same time. We have sizes S, M, and L to fit people of allproportions. Blood pressure will also be recorded manually to verify results.

Blood Pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out blood. Due to stress, lack of exercise, and improper diet, blood pressure may rise and stay high over time, known as hypertension. This causes damage to the body and may lead to coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, and other health problems.
