Technology has undoubtedly made life and living healthy super easy and hassle-free. You no longer have to wait in queues at your nearby clinic to get your blood test done or to measure your blood sugar levels.
Modern day technology has developed numerous health monitoring home devices that are portable, easy to use and practical.
An Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitor is a device that measures and checks the electrical activity of your heart. It records the heart’s activity and rhythm through a strip of paper that moves on a line on a screen. By measuring the electrical current running through our heart, the device helps us know if our heart is working normally as it should, or not. An ECG can also screen and diagnose different cardiac problems, allowing us to check if our heart is healthy. This makes it an incredibly useful device for people who constantly monitor their heart health.
Blood Pressure Monitor
One of the easiest ways to regularly check your blood pressure at home is through an automated blood pressure cuff. These devices have a digital monitor attached with them that records your blood pressure and displays the readings on a screen.
You can also use a sphygmomanometer, which is also referred to as a blood pressure gauge or a blood pressure meter. It consists of an inflatable cuff which first collapses the artery under it and then releases it in a controlled manner. Along with the cuff, it also has a manometer which helps record the pressure of your blood.
