Re: blood pressure moniter
As far as doctors telling blind people what they can and can't do, their advice is no more accurate than anyone else's. They are doctors. That doesn't mean they know anything about blindness and I evaluate their advice on the basis that if it makes sense, fine, if it doesn't, well, that's just one more sighted person who thinks he knows about blindness who, as is so often the case, doesn't.

Really? Once you slide the cuff in place around your upper arm, if you
unfasten the velcro fasteners to make the cuff tighter with your free hand , it
is liable to fall off or slide out of place unless you have somebody else on
hand to help you adjust it. My doctor has advised me never to attach the
cuff this way because it could result in inaccurate readings. He suggested
that if I didn't have another person on hand to wrap the cuff properly around my
upper arm, then I should consider a wrist monitor instead.
