Gear-Free Blood Pressure Gauges Allow Better Accuracy

Welch Allyn has introduced a new aneroid to complete its line of sphygmomanometers featuring DuraShock technology, the company’s patented gear-free, shock-resistant innovation in blood pressure product design. The new blood pressure gauges stay calibrated longer and allow healthcare practitioners to maintain the accuracy of their blood pressure readings over time.
Each of the gauges comes standard with a lifetime calibration warranty, a laser-engraved dial face and jeweled aneroid movement, and has the ability to withstand a drop of up to 60 inches. The entire line of DuraShock gauges includes hand (Tycos DS58), integrated (Tycos DS48, DS45, and DS44), pocket (Tycos DS48A) and trigger-style (DS66) aneroids, giving healthcare practitioners the ability to choose the gauge that best meets their particular needs and settings.
The gauges are the first of their kind capable of surpassing the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) shock-resistant specifications of retaining calibration after a 30-inch drop.
