With the blood pressure monitor, your loved one can take a blood pressure reading, which will be recorded automatically in the system. The process operates completely wirelessly. Caregivers can log in to see the blood pressure readings, and to set up rules, for example to alert caregivers when a reading has been taken, or to remind the loved one if a reading hasn't been taken at the expected time.</td></tr>

A blood pressure monitor can be added to the GrandCare System to record blood pressure readings.<br /> The blood pressure monitor is battery-operated and Bluetooth-enabled to communicate wirelessly with the system.<br />  
There is one particular model of blood pressure monitor that can be integrated with a system, the A&D Medical brand, Model UA-767 Plus BT. It comes with your choice of three cuff sizes, small, medium or large. The monitor is battery-operated, and communicates with the system wirelessly via Bluetooth. As part of the installation process, a [[Bluetooth Antenna Configuration|Bluetooth antenna will be installed]], and the [[Add a Blood Pressure Monitor|blood pressure monitor will be paired with your system]], so that the signals are picked up properly. It will also be assigned to the resident(s) who will be using it, so that readings will be recorded for the correct person. This is typically done for you by your installer.<br /><br />

Blood Pressure Monitor

Taking a Blood Pressure Reading

A blood pressure monitor can be added to the GrandCare System to record blood pressure readings.
The blood pressure monitor is battery-operated and Bluetooth-enabled to communicate wirelessly with the system.

Caregivers can log onto the Online Care Portal to view Health Reports and to set up custom Wellness Notifications and Acknowledgements.

Residents can view their Health Readings by using the Wellness Button on the Touchscreen.

Taking a Blood Pressure Reading

Follow all manufacturer-provided directions for setting up and using the blood pressure monitor, including battery installation, taking accurate readings, and device care.
Once the reading has been taken, it will be sent to the system automatically.

Supported Models

There are variety of models that can be used with the GrandCare System. For a full listing of supported health devices, see our Supported Hardware List. Use the manufacturer’s directions that came with the device to identify the model you have.

Identifying the Device Model
Each blood pressure monitor displays its model number on the front face of the device.
  • If your device reads "UA-767 Plus BT", you have the UA-767PBT BP Monitor.
  • If your device reads "UA-767 Plus BT-Ci", you have the UA-767PBT-Ci BP Monitor.


Adding a Blood Pressure Device to the GrandCare System

All Wellness Devices require a Bluetooth Antenna to communicate with the touchscreen. These devices can be added through the Setup Wizard on the touchscreen or manually through the Online Care Portal.

Through the Touchscreen Setup Wizard
The first time you turn on a new GrandCare System, the Setup Wizard will start automatically and guide you through setting up your Wellness Devices.
This is the easiest way to add devices, as the system will guide you through the setup process step-by-step.

If you are adding a device to an already configured system, see the Setup Wizard page for instructions on re-starting the Wizard.

  6. Enter the device Serial Number (found on a sticker on the bottom of the device).
  7. Enter the device Bluetooth ID (10-digit number found on a sticker on the bottom of the device - e.g. 00A0960D7944).
  8. Click the "Finish" button.



Manually Pairing the A&D UA-767PBT-Ci Blood Pressure Monitor
The A&D UA-767PBT-Ci blood pressure monitor requires an additional step to complete pairing of the device.


  1. First, verify that the batteries are removed from the pressure monitor.
  2. At the Touchscreen, touch the Settings Button.
  3. Enter the System PIN.
  4. Press the "Devices" button.
  5. Press the Blood Pressure Monitor in the Devices list - the Blood Pressure Monitor Details Screen will appear.
  6. Press the "Pair Device" button.
  7. Follow the directions on the screen: insert the batteries into the device, watch for Pr to display on the device, then touch "Start Pairing."
  8. Wait while it pairs - you will see a Success Message when pairing is complete.



Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble adding the blood pressure device to the system.

  • Make sure you have the Bluetooth Antenna set up correctly.
  • Make sure you have entered the device Serial Number and Bluetooth ID correctly.
  • Make sure that this blood pressure monitor is not configured on any other systems in Bluetooth range.
