All the validation requirement were reached: 74, 93, and 98 of systolic blood pressure measurements and 86, 97, and 99 of diastolic blood pressure measurements were within 5, 10, and 15 mmHg of absolute difference, respectively. The mean ± SD device-observer difference was −1.2 ± 4.9 mmHg for systolic blood pressure and −0.7 ± 3.5 mmHg for diastolic blood pressure. For systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure, respectively, 25 and 30 of subjects had at least two of their three difference within 5 mmHg, and three and zero subject showed no difference within 5 mmHg. In conclusion, Transtek TMB-1776 has passed all phases of ESH-IP 2010 and is suitable for self/home blood pressure measurement of adults. Copyright © 2019 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
