Basic usability mistakes were improved. Large connector and ring in red. Only if the tube is positioned correct in the crook of the arm the measuring will be correct. A red mark makes it easier to apply the cuff. The shape at the end of the cuff fixes it into the crook of the arm. Two users can save results as “1” and “2” easily. They can mark their names on the matt area. Large functional elements, numbers, connector and buttons, combined with an up-to-date medical design fulfill the intention of “universal design”.
