Riester R1 Shock-Proof Aneroid Sphygmomanometer Overview
The R1 Shock-Proof Aneroid Sphygmomanometer is BHS validated for precision that lasts a lifetime. Take more accurate blood pressure measurements with the R1, which has a maximum error tolerance of +/- 2 mm Hg, which surpasses international standards.
It gets better...
The R1 Sphygmomanometer has been specially manufactured to be shockproof up to a falling height of 4 feet. The R1's superior precision will not be impaired following an impact or fall to the floor. The same can't be said of your conventional aneroid sphygmomanometer!
But that's not all.
The Riester R1, like all other Riester Sphygmomanometers, comes with a 2-year warranty. Because of the added durability of this blood pressure device, Riester also backs this product with a 5-year warranty on calibration. Talk about peace of mind.
Features And Benefits:
- Quick inflation by pumping the ergonomic bulb with built-in spoon-shaped support to put less stress on your hand

- Worry-free shockproof design prevents inaccurate readings if the device is dropped and eliminates repair costs (R1 has a 5-year warranty on calibration)
- Easily legible scale with a diameter of 2.0 inches, with your choice of white scale with blue pointer or black scale with fluorescent red pointer
- Valve base and air duct with metal precision valve for added durability
- Sturdy ABS casing to withstand everyday wear and tear
- Faster cuff exchanges and unhindered operation thanks to the metal threaded tube connection at the top of the device
- Maximum error tolerance of only +/- 2 mm Hg, superior to international standards
BHS Tested and Approved
One duty of the British Hypertension Society, a group of healthcare professionals in the field of hypertension and cardiovascular disease, is independently validating blood pressure devices for accuracy and precision.
The BHS publishes a list of approved BP monitors, which includes blood pressure devices that meet their strict standards for accuracy.
The Riester R1 Shock-Proof Sphygmomanometer is on the BHS list of approved devices. You can learn more about the thorough tests the R1 went through on the BHS website. At a minimum, all approved devices must achieve a B grade for both systolic and diastolic measurements. BHS validation is just one additional reason you should trust Riester for your blood pressure measurement needs.
