LifeSource Blood Pressure Monitors

LifeSource is part of A&D Medical, a leading manufacturer of home-use and professional electronic healthcare equipment. At its website it classifies its blood pressure monitors into four types:

* Automatic Blood Pressure Monitors

* Manual Inflate Blood Pressure Monitors

* Wrist Blood Pressure Monitors

* Professional Blood Pressure Monitors

The website also provides articles on various aspects of blood pressure monitoring.

LifeSource has an excellent reputation for its blood pressure monitors. An article at the US Pharmacist website, titled “Home Blood Pressure Monitoring: A Technology That Has Come of Age” (no longer online), said:

The home blood pressure monitor market is flooded with a multitude of manufacturers offering closely competitive products. These products continue to change with respect to their complexity, variety of functions, and cost. Accuracy should be the primary goal for device selection. The number of products available to patients can understandably cause confusion and an opportunity for the pharmacist to provide knowledgeable information to the buyer. Internet-based medical device retailers are another common venue for purchasing a monitor.

Data gathered by Information Resources, Inc showed that at least 65% of the home blood pressure monitors in the US are sold by Omron Healthcare Corporation.34 Other popular device manufacturers include A&D Medical/LifeSource, Lumiscope, Mark of Fitness, Panasonic, and Samsung. All are producing high-quality, clinically tested monitors.

In June 2003 Consumer Reports journal published a survey of blood pressure monitors. This is available to subscribers only. However, in 2004 the Pharmacist's Letter/Prescriber's Letter published a three-page newssheet "Home Blood Pressure Monitors", for doctors to give their patients. It included a comparison table of leading models. It said that, among automatic arm units, the "products rated most highly by Consumer Reports" were the LifeSource One Step UA-767V and the LifeSource One Step UA-767VL.

In May 2005, Choice magazine, the Australian equivalent of Consumer Reports, published its own survey of 18 home blood pressure monitors. It is worth noting that the UA-767 was the top-rated model in Australia.

The About: Exercise web portal reviewed a LifeSource blood pressure monitor, and, without stating the particular model, said:

LifeSource provides an affordable, easy-to-use blood pressure monitor for home use. For those who need to monitor blood pressure regularly, you won't find a better buy....LifeSource has a great reputation for providing innovative and practical products like heart rate monitors and scales. Their blood pressure monitor is no exception.
