The device is like a arm cuff with a base attachment for your portable device. All you want to do is - plug in the phone, put on the cuff, launch the app. Now you have a full featured blood pressure meter.

The app stores readings for historical review, works with multiple users, and can share them with your doctor and caregiver. It also purportedly detects irregular heartbeats.

The American Heart Association recommends home monitoring for all people with high blood pressure. This will help the healthcare provider determine whether treatments are working.

However, home monitoring is not a substitute for regular visits to your physician. If you have been prescribed medication to lower your BP, don't stop taking them without consulting your doctor. This rule is applicable even if your blood pressure readings are in the normal range during home monitoring.
