In traditional aneroid sphygmomanometer design, several delicate gears and springs convert and amplify vertical movement of the pinion to rotational movement to turn the pointer. The DuraShock™ gear-free design, however, uses a superior single helix spring to directly convert the vertical movement of the pinion to rotation of the pointer without the use of a multi-step gear arrangement.
Accuracy and reliability
Maintain accurate blood pressure readings with lower lifetime cost with gear-free DuraShock™ technology. The Silver Series' gauge provides unsurpassed reliability in a traditional handheld device.
The Welch Allyn Platinum Series DuraShock™ hand aneroid sphygmomanometer is accurate to ±3 mmHg or 2% of the reading above 200 mmHg. This product will maintain the safety and performance characteristics specified at temperatures ranging from 10º C to 40º C at a relative humidity level not to exceed 90%.
The super shock-resistant device can withstand up to 60° drop (twice the AAMI "Shock Resistant" standard) and remain in calibration. It features jewel movement for long life, laser-engraved dial face for accuracy, and a larger inflation bulb than bronze series. Its lighter-than-traditional-model weight won't weigh down your lab coat.
The DS45A Integrated Aneroid Gauge features a unique integrated, cuff-mountable design that is compact and lightweight for ease of use. The gauge attaches easily to any integrated cuff (sold separately) with the included integrated gauge adapter and rotates 360º for easy viewing from any angle.
