When your heart beats, it pumps blood round your body to give it the energy and oxygen it needs. As the blood moves, it pushes against the sides of the blood vessels. The strength of this pushing is your blood pressure. You can monitor your blood pressure in the comfort of your own home with our range of Blood Pressure Monitors.
