That isn't the case.  My hands aren't excessively large but they aren't small either.  There is plenty of room to slide the cuff on.  You can leave enough space to allow reasonably easy movement.  I haven't determined what the maximum space is you can leave.  I leave enough so the cuff slides up my arm without a lot of lose space but enough so sliding is easy.

Which is okay if you have small hands.  But if you have large hands,
then it may not be so easy to slide the cuff on and off without making
it too loose to take accurate readings.
