Simple, Lightweight & Robust
We offer a range of three different aneroid sphygmomanometers in this range – Duplex, Limpet & Pocket.
The Pocket model has a belt clip on the back of the gauge, the main use of the belt clip is to slide it onto the blood pressure cuff when taking a BP measurement. This means the device does not need to be held in position or placed on a nearby surface, the gauge is facing the user and allows very convenient viewing of the device during a BP reading. The clip also allows it to be clipped onto the front pocket of a Doctors coat for example.
The Duplex model is made to be held and inflated with one hand, leaving the other hand free to hold the stethoscope in place when taking a BP reading. Moreover, it is a more traditional design and is made completely from metal parts. Therefore, it is solid and very durable. Ideal for the rigours of use ‘on the move’ across varying environments. Community Nurses/Midwives or Doctors on call are the ideal users of this version, as well as the usual GP consultation rooms.
The Limpet model is also designed for use in much the same way as the Duplex. However, this version is much lighter and less bulky. It is a good value option, providing a great balance of price with the trusted accuracy and reliability of our other products.
