I was skeptical about using such an easy and convenient blood pressure monitor. I also have the arm monitor. Since I was a skeptic, I compared it to the other monitor, and the readings were in the same range. I recommend this for ease of use, accuracy, price and convenience. This monitor would be easy for the elderly to use. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.

I originally purchased this product for my mother because of its ease of use. Within a few months of ownership, I was found to be hypertensive. I had been having what were thought to be classic hypertension related headaches, but whenever I used this product to check my own blood pressure, it was reading on the low end of the normal range. When I couldn't take the headaches any more, I went to the doctor and was found to be severely hypertensive. Within one hour of the physician office results, I rechecked my pressure with this product. The reading was once again in the low end of normal, about 75 points from what was found at the MD office. As a medical professional, the false sense of security that this machine offers is scary. Do not buy this product.

      I like the product and it seems accurate but I AM UNABLE TO TURN IT OFF. I have to remove battery or it stays on.. very annoying. Five stars if it would turn off on it's own.

                  got two of these by mistake. So Gave one to my friend. Both of us are nurses, who would need a xl cuff on traditional B/P set up. We both found this to be reliable, easy to use and great for "big Girls" who live alone and need to check B/P.
