What works better a manual or electronic blood pressure monitor?

Manual vs. Automatic--Speaking Off the Cuff

You may actually be comfortable with the old-fashioned way of taking blood pressure, especially if you're bombarded with electronic and automatic health product ideas. However, do infomercials even sell manual blood pressure monitors? Yes, actually. Battery-powered, also AC-powered, manual cuff blood pressure monitors available through health care product infomercials are on a par with the equipment in a doctor's office.

Alternatively, if you're like many people and want a compact solution, automatic blood pressure monitors are probably your style. If you have thin or overly bulked-up arms, you may be uncomfortable with the cuff. WrisTech just fastens to your wrist, but it isn't an off-the-cuff solution!
