I would say my hands are definitely medium or morep; never have a problem with sliding on and off.

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.

Yes Pam, I just slide mine on and off; works fine.
And if I take more than 1 reading in a few minutes, the results will not be the same.
And this model cost around 100 u s dollars!!!

I have an upper arm one, and what we did was to wrap it, velcro it, and then just slide it down when finished, so it can be slid up next time it needs to be used. Pam.

Another advantage of a wrist monitor over an upper-arm monitor is that
it is usually easier to wrap the cuff around your wrist yourself with
only your free hand. By contrast, an upper-arm monitor usually
requires two hands to wrap the cuff properly around your upper-arm,
which means that you may need somebody on hand to help you. So if you
livealone or do not always have another person on hand to help you,
you are probably better off with a wrist monitor, even if it is less
accurate as an upper-arm model.

I want it to be that accurate I suppose I can go to the doctor's office.
