3. Important information for your
health and safety:
The information contained in this handbook and that
obtained from measurements with the appliance should
not encourage you to make any forms of diagnosis, to
treat health problems or to make any decisions about
• The measurements taken by yourself can only
be used for your information - they cannot be
a substitute for examination by a doctor!
• Blood pressure is heavily influenced by time of day,
physical exertion and other factors. Do not rely on
individual measurements.
Diseases of the cardio-vascular system can result
in erroneous measurements, as can very low blood
pressure, circulatory disorder, arrhythmia, and other
pre-existing conditions (for example, diabetes mellitus).
• Especially in such cases you should not rely on the
measurement values determined by yourself!
• Under no circumstances should you abstain from
having your blood pressure measured by a doctor in
cases of known ailment, although the values shown
by this appliance are without defect!
This blood pressure meter contains precision components and electronics. Measurement accuracy and
the usable life of the appliance both depend on careful
You must ...
- protect the appliance from knocks and from being
- use the appliance only in normal interior ambient
conditions; protect it from humidity, dirt, exposure to
excess heat or cold, and temperature fluctuations.

The month and day as well as the time
appear at the top of the display. You can move from
one position to the next by pressing the button
again. The currently selected position flashes.
Press the button SET , to change the value of
the flashing position. In the time display, the second
part of the day is indicated by a small letter “P”
(for PM) under the colon character.
Then press the button MODE , to save the programmed details and change over to programming the
systolic and diastolic value limits.
6. Enter limit values
After you have entered in the time and date, the first
programmable limit value for systolic blood pressure
blinks in the display.
Press the button SET , to raise the value in
5 mmHg steps. The adjustment range for systolic
blood pressure lies between 70-250 mmHg.
Press the button MODE , to save this setting and
move to programming the diastolic limit values.
Press the button SET , to raise the value in
5 mmHg steps. The adjusment range for diastolic
blood pressure lies between 40-245 mmHg.
Press the button MODE , to save the setting.
Repeat the last five instructions to enter the
value limits for further users (2 + 3).
Press the button START / STOP , to discontinue
the programming of limit values.
The programming of limit values into each of the
3 memory slots ("no. 1" to "no. 3") can also be
carried out at a later time.
7. Fitting the appliance
Use the appliance only on persons whose wrist 'fits'
the pressure sleeve. The sleeve must be attached
lightly and closed firmly with the Velcro fastener.
The sleeve is appropriate to a wrist perimeter
of 135m-195mm.
If ...
- the wrist is too thin, it may not be possible to pump
up the pressure sleeve sufficiently, and in this case
an exact measurement is not possible.
- the wrist is too thick, it may not be possible to fasten
the pressure sleeve firmly enough and, in this case
also, it is not possible to obtain an exact
Caution: Do not use the appliance if you have any
injuries or lesions to the wrist. These could be aggravated by pressure when the sleeve is pumped up.
A measurement of blood pressure can only be meaningful if the blood circulation has settled. You should take a
seat and relax for 3 - 5 minutes before taking a
Notice: Before taking the first measurement, remove
the protective foil from the display.
Place the appliance on the inside of the left wrist, as
Close the Velcro fastener firmly - but only sufficiently
to ensure the sleeve is lying evenly.
8. Measuring blood pressure
It is important to avoid moving the appliance in any way
while a measurement is being taken. The arm should
be supported on a firm surface and held still. As far as
possible, do not talk!
Position the arm such that the appliance is at the
same level as the heart. This is roughly a hand's
breadth above the bottom of the rib cage.
Now press the button START / STOP .
Press the button SET , to programme the desired
memory block (no.1 to no.3).
Press the button START / STOP again. All elements in
the display appear shortly, then the desired memory
The measurement process starts with the pumping up of the sleeve.
To break off the measurement process press the
button START / STOP again.
During measurement, air is gradually released from the
sleeve. If the measurement fails at this point, the appliance may pump some more air into the sleeve. If a
measurement is taken successfully, the remaining air is
released and the display shows ...
the „systolic“ blood pressure at the top, in healthy
adults it lies between about 105-140 mmHg,
the “diastolic” blood pressure in the middle, in
healthy adults it lies between about 60-90 mmHg,
the pulse measurement at the bottom.
The m easured blood pressure as well as the programmed limit values are displayed alternatively. Should a
limit value be exceeded (SYS or DIA) the appropriate
value flashes in the display. Press the button
START / STOP to change over to the Start display and
possibly alter the programmed values.
The appliance is equipped with an automatic switch-off.
Should a button not be activated within one minute,
the appliance switches itself off. Press the button
START / STOP , to switch the appliance back on.
9. Saving measured values
The appliance has three memory blocks (numbered 1 to 3),
each with 30 memory locations. It can therefore save
up to 30 measurements for 3 persons, or up to 90 measurements for one person. Additionally, the average of
the last three measurements can also be displayed.
