Our standard blood pressure cuffs consist of cover and bladder, which can both also be ordered separately. In order to select the correct cuff from our range you will need to know the sphygmomanometer type and the upper arm circumference of the patient.

There are 3 basic types of cuff which differ in form as well as in the number of connecting tubes:
Cuffs with a single connecting tube for hand-held aneroid devices with a single air valve eg. for our Kobold and Rektro-Erkameter models Cuffs wtth a double tube for connection to aneroid devices with two air valves e.g. for our Perfect Aneroid and Profi models To protect the measuhng instruments the pressure in these devices is built up indirectly via the bladder, thus preventing unwanted surges in pressure. Cuffs with 2 separate tubes for stationary devices and tabletop models e.g, for our Varic model and all mercurial sphygmomanometers


There are still no generally applicable specifications for the dimensions of blood pressure cuffs. The relation between the width of the cuff and the patient’s upper- arm circumference is, however, of particular importance. In order to achieve precise measurement values we recommend measurement of the upper-arm circumference at heart level and strict observation of the recommended measuring range of the respective cuff. The centre of the bladder (ndicoted by the V symbol) should lie on the brachial artery
If the cuff size (bladder width) is too small in relation to the upper-a(m circumference the measured values will be too high, and fit is too large the measured values will be too low
