Most individuals are familiar with manual blood pressure monitor (sphygmomanometer), which is comprised of an inflatable cuff attached to a small hand pump and measuring scale. Blood pressure monitors are ideal for fitness professionals who are monitoring more than body composition, particularly those who work with older and other at-risk clients. Manual blood pressure monitors offer outstanding accuracy with a bit of practice and are handy to help you determine how intense of a program you can assign to your clients, even if measurements are only performed during the initial assessment. Keep in mind that all manual blood pressure monitors also require a stethoscope to properly measure diastolic in addition to systolic blood pressure.
