One of the important things to consider when buying a blood pressure monitor is the reliability of the results. To do this, it is essential that your blood pressure monitor has a European standard (CE) as well as three French standards (NF) + clinical validation (90% of the blood pressure monitors on the market do not have this validation). If they don't have them, your measuring device will fail. The CE must appear on the packaging or on the product itself. It must also be clinically validated using a protocol established by internationally recognized organizations (ESH, BHS).

For it to be valid for all types of people, specific validation is necessary.
