Omron M6 Blood Pressure Monitor

Omron, the leading manufacturer of blood pressure machines have introduced an excellent machine for people to use at home - the Omron M6 blood pressure monitor. With all the reliability of previous omron models the M6 has the largest digital display on the market, a supremely comfortable fitting cuff and even has the technology to detect if movement whilst taking the reading has affected the accuracy.

Asda join BPA in raising awareness

In the run up to Valentine's Day, the Blood Pressure Association teams up with ASDA to run an early Know Your Numbers week from 1-7 February.

We are encouraging everyone to love their hearts by knowing their blood pressure numbers and taking action to lower their blood pressure.

Everyone can do this by having a quick, easy and painless blood pressure check and making healthy lifestyle choices.

Readings will be handed back to you on a credit card size report that you can keep.

During the event ASDA customers will receive special credit card sized handout with the BPA's tips on lowering blood pressure and can have free blood pressure checks at selected stores.

Staff from Fitness First will also be offering fitness advice at selected ASDA stores and giving customers the chance to win free gym membership.
