The Blood Pressure Association chose to partner with Microlife because the company is one of the world leaders in the development and production of medical diagnostic equipment for home monitoring and clinical use.
Microlife works hard to make sure that its machines are accurate, reliable, and easy to use. Its blood pressure monitors are clinically validated.
Microlife believes that everyone should be able to buy and use high-quality blood pressure monitors, not just doctors and nurses.
Microlife is dedicated to highest accuracy in medical measurements. It is represented in the SP committee of ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and AAMI (Association of American Medical Instruments) for the development of industrial standards in accuracy and the essential performance of non-invasive blood pressure monitors.
