The Omron M4 Intelli IT is a new model blood pressure monitor from Omron. The model was introduced in January 2020 and is comparable in functions and capabilities to the Omron M3 Comfort. The M4 Intelli IT has the additional functionality that it can be connected to your smartphone via a Bluetooth connection. Via the Omron Connect app you have quick and clear insight into the measured blood pressure values. You can install the app for free from the Apple store (iOs) or Google Play store (Android).
The large display clearly shows the measurement results. In addition, simple symbols indicate whether the measurement has been taken correctly, the cuff is correctly attached and whether an irregular heartbeat has been detected. Due to the simple one-button operation, an accurate measurement can be performed quickly and easily.
The blood pressure monitor has been clinically validated in accordance with the ESH2010 protocol. Because the Omron M4 Intelli IT complies with this strict protocol, you can be sure that the measurements are accurate. The Heart Foundation recommends measuring with a clinically validated blood pressure monitor.
The Omron M4 Intelli IT upper arm blood pressure monitor offers you the possibility to connect the blood pressure monitor to your smartphone. You can install the free Omron Connect app on your smartphone. In the Omron Connect app you have a complete picture of the measured values. You can also view and export the measured blood pressure values graphically. Exporting the data is particularly useful if you want to be able to share it with your doctor.
The Omron M4 Intelli IT upper arm blood pressure monitor can be used by 2 persons. There is room for 2 personal profiles. The switch button at the bottom left allows you to switch between the profiles. Each profile has 60 memory spaces available. With two measurements per day, you thus have room for 30 days.
On the Omron M4 Intelli IT you will also find a heart rate monitor for displaying the heart rate. If an irregular heartbeat is measured, it will be displayed on the screen. The same goes for the motion sensor and cuff wrapping guide. If there is any movement during the measurement, this will be displayed. When measuring, a symbol will light up if the cuff is correctly attached.
Finally, the Omron M4 Intelli IT upper arm blood pressure monitor can calculate the average of the last 3 measurements. Although this should be done manually, it is recommended. An average blood pressure provides a more accurate result and therefore gives a better picture of your actual blood pressure. To use the average, you must take 10 measurements directly in succession within a time span of 3 minutes.
The Omron M4 Intelli IT comes with the Omron Intelliwrap cuff. This cuff (HEM-FL31) measures very accurately, because it measures 360 degrees around the upper arm. In addition, the cuff feels comfortable. It is easy to install without the help of others. The arm can be slid into the tube. The cuff is suitable for most people with upper arms that are between 22 and 42 centimeters in circumference. A smaller size (<22 centimeters) or larger (> 42 centimeters) size is not available.
If you need a smaller size cuff, we recommend that you look at the Omron M3. Although this model does not have Bluetooth connectivity, it does offer the option of connecting a flexible (children's) cuff. This cuff is suitable for an upper arm circumference of > 17 centimeters.
Omron Intellisense™ technology
The Omron M4 Intelli IT uses the patented Omron Intellisense ™ technology. As a result, the cuff is inflated in a special way so that it feels comfortable. In addition, it inflates the cuff correctly and precisely so that it is not too hard. The measurements are accurate due to Omron Intellisense ™ technology.
The Omron M4 Intelli IT comes with a 3-year manufacturer's warranty on the blood pressure monitor and a 1-year manufacturer's warranty on the cuff.
