Watch your health with the CD-R King blood pressure monitor
What will CD-R King think of next? Joining the USB massager, the ₱5,990 7-inch netbook, the USB gaming pistol, and even a power-generating windmill is the CD-R King sphygmomanometer—a fancy, technical way of saying blood pressure monitor.
This battery-powered (4 x AA) monitor from CD-R King works the same sphygmomanometer you’d encounter at the nurses’ station: wrap the cuff around your upper arm, and wait for it to squeeze your arm. Unlike the old-school blood monitor, this one runs on its own, sans the attentive nurse with a stethoscope pressed against your lower bicep.
The price? ₱880. That’s significantly lower than the ₱2,000-3,000 price range quoted by acquaintances who’ve bought a blood pressure from Mercury drug store. But accompanying CD-R King’s reputation for low cost is a fear that many of its products are sub-standard. “Parang nakakatakot”, said an observer about the CD-R King blood monitor.
