How to place the blood pressure monitor properly

The blood pressure monitor has a one-size cuff. It adapts to any wrist circumference from 13.5 to 22 cm.

Note - The design and algorithm of our iHealth View Blood Pressure Monitor are optimized for left wrist measurements. To ensure the most accurate measurements possible, we recommend that you make measurements only on the left wrist.

 

Blood pressure can be affected by the position of the device and by your physiological state. It is very important to keep your wrist at heart level throughout the measurement.

  • Sit comfortably, legs uncrossed, feet flat on the floor. 
  • Stay still while the measurement is being taken. 
  • Use the iHealth View blood pressure monitor bracelet on the left wrist only.
  • Place your hand, palm facing upward, in front of you and wrap the cuff around the bare wrist, 2 cm below the fold of the wrist. If the blood pressure monitor is placed properly, the iHealth logo will be placed at the bottom.

      

It is recommended to place the blood pressure monitor storage box under your arm to support it and keep it at an optimal height throughout the measurement (at heart height).
