HassleFREE / Medical Device

HassleFREE

As more and more people have hypertension today, personal blood pressure monitoring is becoming common and important for a healthy life. However, when upper arm blood pressure measuring tools were invented in 1896, it was not designed for one-person operation. Therefore, it is always difficult to put on a traditional cuff by one hand. In this device, the annoying tubes and wires are removed, and through a brand new mechanism design which replaces the old velcro models, this design helps people put on the cuff and adjust the size easily and quietly with one hand, making personal blood pressure monitoring a hassle-free experience.
