The TM-2657P is the latest model in the range of A&D freestanding fully automatic blood pressure monitors.
A&D first launched the Waiting Room monitor over 10 years ago, and it is widely used in pharmacies, hospitals and GP surgeries – in fact, it is estimated that it is used in over 1 in every 7 GP surgeries across the UK!
The reason for the popularity of the TM-2657P is because it enables patients to ‘self-screen’ and take their own blood pressure readings (and weight using a connected Medical Scale). This saves valuable clinical staff time, and therefore cost. It also allows clinical staff to see more patients, and to focus on the patients that most need help.
Where a practice has over 3,500 patients a waiting room monitor should be considered to help optimise patient screening. Once installed, the return on investment is often less than 6 months.
Building on the reputation of the previous models, the TM-2657P provides fast and accurate measurement, with its compact profile, it is extremely easy to use, and is very durable.
The TM-2657P also offers a diverse range of connectivity options – helping to expand market potential in various locations and areas of everyday life such as hospitals, medical clinics, health check-ups, corporate wellness, pharmacy services, and fitness centres.
The monitor benefits from extremely accurate Oscillometric BP measurement, first developed and patented by A&D back in 1984.
It also boasts A&D’s IHB (Irregular HeartBeat Indicator), pioneered by A&D in 2001. This A&D ground breaking technology is now used worldwide assisting in the opportunistic detection of arrhythmias – which include Afib (or Atrial Fibrillation).
The “Torque Controlled Belt drive Method” (TCBM) cuff fastening technology is an accurate, durable and reliable oscillometric measurement of blood pressure on the upper arm relies on the correct cuff/bladder dimensions and pressure applied.
TCBM holds the upper arm perfectly with a personalized cuff circumference, the same measurement preparation carried out by clinical nurses.
