I was undecided about which product to purchase. Then I saw a friends and used it. Subsequently, I purchased this product. I am satisfied!
Upon opening the box I was instantly amazed by the quality and craftsmanship. I am right handed and it is very easy to use, the bulb is pumped with the fingers against a rigid fixture that is held in the palm, the pressure valve is in the right spot and not stiff or sticky. Use with the left hand was also easy, but the bulb must be pumped with the palm and the rigid part is held with the fingers and also the pressure valve was easy to use. The hose is about 24"" long and not flimsy. Now for the pressure release valve. I prefer it over the other cuffs I have used because the valve is very easy to control, it isn't stiff or doesn't sticks open or closed so the pressure can be let out slowly at 2-3 mmHg / sec for an accurate reading or opened fully to dump the pressure quickly. The gauge is large and reads up to 300 mmHg. The numbers are marked every 20 mmHg and seems a bit cluttered but still easy enough to read.
