Reviewers say the A&D Medical LifeSource UA-767T self-inflating, upper-arm blood pressure monitor is best for users with visual impairments. A voice announces readings of blood pressure and pulse through the built-in speaker or headphones (not included). Owners say the UA-767T is easy to use, offers a large display for easy reading and passes professional tests for accuracy. The downside is that the monitor is expensive, so if you don't need these special features, reviewers recommend the basic Panasonic EW3109W (*Est. $50) or the Omron 10 Series BP785 (*Est. $80) , which can store the last 200 readings and comes with the adjustable ComFit cuff.
The British Hypertension Society gives the LifeSource UA-767T blood pressure monitor the highest double-A grade for accuracy, and the American Foundation for the Blind recommends the monitor for ease of use. Yet few user reviews of this unit are available; we found many more posts for other monitors in the UA-767 series at Amazon.com.
