Blood pressure meters are devices that are used to measure blood pressure, which is the pressure the heart makes to send blood to the arteries. The athletes need to control their blood pressure periodically and with the new models of tensiometers for homes it is possible to do it without having to go to a professional.
There are two major types of tensiometers:
- Traditional tensiometers . This type of tensiometer is the one used by professionals in the field of medicine, physiotherapy and pharmacists. - Electronic or digital tensiometers . They are home blood pressure monitors, designed for citizens and athletes who want to measure their blood pressure at home. They are very easy to use and present fairly accurate results. All you have to do is read the instruction manual to know how to operate the electronic device and where to place it. Once this is done, the digital blood pressure monitor does all the work. The results are expressed in very easy to interpret numbers and some even have a built-in voice system that announces the results to the user, for greater comfort.
Within the electronic tensiometers, two models can be distinguished, the cuff tensiometers and the wrist tensiometers. For athletes, tensiometers, together with heart rate monitors, are necessary devices to control their performance and many of them prefer to use wrist blood pressure monitors for their effectiveness in this specific function. To control health, it is more advisable to use the cuff tensiometer.
