Question about Walgreens Wgnbpa-530 Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor Upper Arm
Is there a larger cuff available for this monitor. The one that comes with it is 9" - 13" and I need one about 2 - 3" larger.

We're having consistently high readings with ours, too. We've compared it with as many as two other units at various test sessions.
From the manual:
All digital blood pressure monitors require recalibration in order to ensure continued accuracy.
This monitor does not require recalibration for 2 years under normal usage conditions (approx 3x/day), at which time your monitor will display "CA." The unit should also be recalibrated if the monitor sustains damage due to blunt force (such as dropping) or exposure to fluids or extreme hot or cold temperature changes.
To send monitor for recalibration, please ship to the address below with check or money order in the amount of $10 payable to HoMedics, Inc., for recalibration service, shipping and handling:
HoMedics Recalibration Service Center
Post Office Box 7050
Walled Lake, MI 48390
Allow up to 3 weeks for return of product. For additional information, contact HoMedics Consumer Relations at 1-800-466-3342.
So, do we spend $10 plus postage and wait 3 weeks or more...or do we use the $10 toward a new one immediately at a Walgreen's a half-mile away? It's a nice unit and works well otherwise, so it's a quandry. I hate to toss it. Good luck.

Contact the HoMedic's Consumer Relations Dept @ 800-466-3342 Mon - Fri, 8:30am - 5:00pm ET, they can help you.
Keep in mind, that improper placement of the wrist cuff can cause higher or lower readings, than what they truly are. Also, not keeping your arm at heart level can cause an inaccurate reading.

Robert, I'm not sure that the cuffs would be interchangeable. But, I suspect the problem you're having with the cuff is operator error. Speaking from experience, it's somewhat difficult at best, to apply and arm cuff to yourself. It does take some practice, but if you can get the cuff snugly in place, it should inflate properly. If you want to pursue with interchanging the cuff, contact HoMedics at 800-469-3342, to see if it's possible. Perhaps, you should get a BP Monitor that has a wrist cuff. They're a lot easier to apply and use.
