Discontinued Sphygmomanometers

Below is a list of blood pressure monitors which previously appeared on the main device tables but have been moved to this table due to the fact that they are no longer available on the market. We have kept the recommendation column should you wish to check the status of a device you already have but which does not appear on the main recommendation tables.

For a complete list of devices see our Device Index and for discontinued devices see our Discontinued Devices Index.
