Devices measuring blood pressure oscillometrically at the wrist are becoming more and more popular. These devices are small, easy to handle and can measure blood pressure without the need to undress. However, few of the wrist devices have been validated properly, i.e. according to internationally accepted protocols. In this article current literature on wrist blood pressure measuring devices is presented. The importance of positioning the wrist at heart level for accurate measurements is stressed.
