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.

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.
