The ComFit Cuff is pre-formed for a quick and proper fit that is perfect for both medium and large-sized arms (nine to 17 inches). It's easy to apply the cuff to your arm without any assistance -- simply wrap the cuff around your arm and press start. In seconds your blood pressure and pulse are displayed on the large digital panel. Proven time and time again, Omron's IntelliSense technology ensures accurate, clinically-proven, and comfortable readings. And with a 90 memory recall with date and time stamp, you can track your blood pressure and pulse progress as you work towards a healthier lifestyle.


The Omron HEM-790IT delivers accurate, clinically-proven blood pressure readings in the comfort of your own home.


To take an accurate reading, first position the green marker directly over the artery on the inside of your arm.


Next, place your arm on a table so the cuff is positioned at the same level as your heart.
Omron Health Management Software
Take your health to the next level with the included Omron Health Management Software. This PC software provides a blood pressure and pulse graph that lets you see how your values are trending over time. A morning/evening comparison graph tracks your morning and evening systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate. You can also view your most common values and identify variations by time frame with the frequency distribution graph. The software is simple to use, and it supports multiple users. With just one click, you can download data via the HEM-790IT's USB connection and see graphically displayed measurements on your computer screen in seconds.

Instructions for Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitors
There are several easy steps to taking your blood pressure with this blood pressure monitor. First of all, avoid eating, smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your upper arm, and sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Slide your left arm through the cuff and position the cuff approximately 0.5-inches above the elbow. On the cuff you'll notice a green marker; position this marker directly over the artery on the inside of your arm. Next, secure the cuff with the Velcro material. The cuff should make direct contact with your skin, but you should be able to easily fit your index finger between the cuff and your arm.

Place your arm on a table so that the cuff is positioned at the same level as your heart. Rest comfortably in a relaxed environment for at least 15 minutes prior to taking your blood pressure measurement. Once you feel relaxed, simply press the start button and remain still. The cuff will begin to inflate and numbers will appear on the display as the heart symbol flashes. When the measurement is complete, the cuff will deflate, and your blood pressure and pulse rate will display on the screen. If you need to stop the measurement at any time, simply press the on/off button and the monitor will immediately deflate. And remember, always consult your physician for specific information about your blood pressure.

What is IntelliSense?
The IntelliSense monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level with each use -- you never have to make any adjustments to select an inflation level. This is especially convenient for hypertensive users and for people with certain arrhythmia or heart disorders because their blood pressure is so likely to fluctuate. The biggest advantage of using the IntelliSense technology is a personalized inflation, every time, for maximum comfort.

The Importance of Home Blood Pressure Monitoring
Doctors, diabetes educators, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals all recommend home blood pressure monitoring for various reasons. Home monitoring provides your healthcare professionals with better information to understand and manage your high blood pressure. Many types of hypertension can only be detected by monitoring your blood pressure at home, including:

  • White-coat Hypertension: blood pressure reading is high in your doctor's office but lower at home
  • Masked Hypertension: blood pressure reading is low in doctor's office but higher at home
  • Morning Hypertension: blood pressure reading is higher in the morning
Additionally, many factors can affect your blood pressure, including physical exertion, emotional fluctuations, medications, and stress. So having your blood pressure monitored at a pharmacy with an in-store device after you've been shopping or walking around might not provide you with the most accurate measurement. Monitoring your blood pressure at home allows you achieve a relaxed state more easily, and it gives you the flexibility to take your measurements at various times during the day. By keeping track of your home blood pressure readings, you can provide your healthcare professional with a log of your measurements over time. This can help them evaluate the effectiveness or need for medication.

Q&A - Blood Pressure Monitors

What is IntelliSense?
The IntelliSense Monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level with each use. No adjustments are required by the user to select an inflation level.

Customer Reviews:

  • monitor
    Product was everything it claimed to be. Very satisfied with the monitor and the price....more info
  • very good product
    I bought this for my dad and he loves it he says its very easy to use and very helpful...more info
  • Simple to use!
    This couldn't be easier to use, just put your upper arm in the adjustable cuff and push a button. It also has two modes for taking the blood pressure, one that is a single reading, and the other that is three readings which are taken one minute apart and then averaged. Apparently this is more accurate than the other, however it doesn't seem to make much difference in my overall averages.
    I gave this product only four stars because the software that comes with it is not compatible with Vista Operating System; understandable with new operating systems, but Vista has been out a while.
    Otherwise a great, easy to use product....more info
  • Omron HEM-790IT Blood Pressure Monitor
    Great product all they say about it is true, and it is easy to use....more info
  • Unreliable
    I would not recommend this product to anyone especially someone who is closely monitoring their blood pressure. The readings were very inconsistant. When I took it to my doctors office to compare readings the Omron was not even close. The doctor's reading was 128/74 the Omron was 158/105. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT. It should be labled as a health hazard....more info
  • Nice update
    I have had an old unit (HEM 425C) for almost 15 years, and it has worked flawlessy. It was time to upgrade. While I have not investigated the software enogh, the hardware suits me very well especially with its mode of taking 3 readinggs and averaging for accuracy, if you want. I only wish it would show each reading as it takes them instead of waiting until the very end and showing you the average. You can see the individual readings if you want, but not while it is taking them is my peeve. Not a big deal, everything else about the unit seems to be the usual omron high quality and accuracy....more info
  • Best buy
    I have used this machine for about a month and find it most satisfactory.
    The machine takes your blood pressure 3 times and does an average. My only complaint is that sometimes the machine gives an error message and has to take the pressure over again. There is a program you can download onto your computer and print out a record by week or month. You can bring this record to your doctor....more info
  • Highly recommended
    This is a great product. I like to software that comes with the device. You can export the software into a spreadsheet and track every step. Much easier than having to write it down. The machine is very easy to use. Spend the extra $$ and get this device with the software. You will be glad you did....more info
  • great
    Omron HEM-790IT Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with Advanced Omron Health Management Software Fantastic. good quality + easy to use...more info
  • Unit great -- s/w could be better
    Easy to use; seems well made. Provision in the s/w for including notes with each day (not reading), but you can only add comments when attached to computer. If you take several readings during a day at a remote location, it is a pain to have to remember the details until you return to computer. Also, if you want notes specific to the reading (not the day), you must generate a csv (spreadsheet) file showing the individual readings and add the comments there. Graphs would be much more useful if they plotted individual readings on a given day....more info
  • Reading True
    Omron HEM-790IT Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor with Advanced Omron Health Management Software

    My doctor had great reservations regarding my previous monitor that took its reading from your finger. Having used this new one a few weeks, I continue to wonder how accurate automatic BP monitors can be. Maybe I just don't know enough about how variable ones blood pressure can be. Measures taken fairly close in time can vary on this machine from being very "normal" to abnormally high within a time span from 10 to 30 minutes. The bells and whistles on this model are very nice in theory. However, if you cannot trust the measurements, it is all for naught. ...more info
  • need more than two user (A) (B) wish is was for more than two users
    NEED MORE THAN TWO USERS (A), (B) IS NOT ENOUGH OTHER THAN THAT IS GOOD ...more info
  • Just simply works
    This is exactly what it says it is. Simple, easy to use, and reliable. Having had a recent slight "cardiac event", I wanted a means to capture not only blood pressure but pulse as well.

    The unit is compact, simple to use and fits easily next to my computer monitor (which allows for a constant USB connection). The software supplied allows for historical monitoring of my results with print-outs that I can take to my doctor.

    I've had the product for a couple of months and am very pleased with it!...more info
  • OMRON HEM-790IT
    Affordably priced with lots of features the best of which is software that does a great job visualizing blood pressure over a period of time, etc.

    The "pre-formed" cuff is unfortunately very poorly designed, difficult to fit to an average arm, and causes an inordinately large number of failed attempts to check blood pressure. OMRON really should recall this cuff!...more info
  • Very Satisfied
    BP measurements in line with with nurse's measurements. Measures BP without putting extreme pressure on hand and makes very little/soft noise while measuring pressure. Memory/average functions are very convenient. ...more info
  • Omron HEM-7901T
    I started using the monitor about a month ago and so far it works OK.
    The four AA batteries have a very short life (about a month) and Omron suggests that you replace the cuff ($20) yearly so the unit is costly to use compared to others.
    The hearth monitoring software is easy to install and gives a good picture of blood pressure trends in an easy to read form.
    I bought this unit to repalce an old (3-4 years) Microlife unit that has the same features.
    The batteries on the Micrtolife lasted me at least a couple of years and never had to replace the two cuffs that came with the monitor.
    The Microlife unit also comes with plotting software but the mini USB like comnnection on my unit was difficult to connect and I decided to replace it.
    In closing, I like to say that if I had to replce the unit again I would go with the Microlife unit as it is much more durable, cheaper to operate and they have very good customer service...more info
  • Omron Blood Pressure Monitor
    This product is easy to use and works well on individuals with larger arm diameter. It gives a good reading, even when the person's heart skips beats.

  • Omron Blood Pressure HEM-790IT on a Mac
    I use an Intel Mac Pro running OS X 10.5 as my machine of choice, but quite often the applications that I need are only available for Windows. My solution is to use VMWare Fusion.

    Software:
    Fusion runs the Omron Blood Pressure monitor HEM790IT software very well and the device interfaces via USB. The Omron Health Management software is fairly flexible in the way it can display the data. I find the morning, daytime, evening sorting of the pressures very useful and the frequency histograms really convey the true profile of your pressure that will be helpful for your doctor.

    Pressures can also be entered manually so that readings done away from home can be included in the data set.

    Hardware:
    The HEM790IT itself is very well made and easy to operate. A computer is not required for manual readings and every day operation. The pressure cuff is a bit large for me, but I quickly learned the proper way to secure it to my arm....more info
  • Great does exactly what it says.
    Very comfortable cuff. The tracking software makes it easy to see trends and print out the information for you doctor. ...more info
  • Omron HEM-790IT Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
    This monitor is very easy to use, it will keep track of 2 users plus guest
    user. The software that comes with it is easy to use and navigate through.
    My doctor was extremely impressed when i went to my appointment with the monitor and my laptop, number 1, to check the accuracy of the monitor and 2,look at the graffs, averages, and numbers the software provides.My doctor told me this makes it so much easier for her to prescribe the right medication that i need at this point. My next appointment, I just need to print out the information from the software to show my doctor. ...more info
  • irratic readings
    The readings were very inconsistent, so I had to return the item. I owned an older model from this company and it worked very well for many years until it became inoperative....more info
  • Inaccurate
    It is easy to use, with nice cuff design. From day 1, it seemed to be inaccurate. Constantly read high. Usually by about 10-15%. Hih enough that I knew it had to be wrong becuase I'm on Blood pressure meds and my readings should never get as high as it showed. Sure enough when I compared to my Doctors, itwas very wrong. I didn'ttry to buy a cheap one. I was willing to pay for a good, accurate meter. Find out what brand/model your doctors office uses and buy that is your best bet. This isn't even accurate enough to be used for a guide line. The readings will just make you panic....more info
  • HEM-790IT BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR
    Unit is very easy to use and instruction manual is well written. The software was easy to load but takes time to use and understand. I like the separate user memory and quick check without memory for other user's. Product is well designed and priced well. Good bang for the buck....more info
  • Its Accurate
    I usaly Compare the results of this mechine with Vita-Stat(big Pucblic Mechin) and it gives similar results. You can also get average of 3 entries, one minute apart from each. It would have been great if it also worked as time clock. The Software is easy to install and import of your results is easy. It should have initial time and date setup when you first time use it....more info
  • Does as advertised
    The unit appears accurate and well made. The software is usefull and easy to use. This type of unit (arm type) is more difficult to use than the the wrist type but appears to more accurate....more info
  • Easy and accurate
    The is a great BP monitor. It's very easy to use, accurate, averages your scores by week, morning, and evening. Will take 3 sets of readings in one sitting and average them for you. Great little machine!...more info
  • Simple Operation, Works Great!
    So far this machine has worked well and is very simple to use. It is nice to have immediate feedback on the bloodpressure effects of my various exercises, food consumption, and relaxation or stress levels....more info
  • Data download is great
    The ability to download the data makes this unit worth the money. After a lot of work I was able to make it include the data that I had previously kept manually; this unit should make it easier to import data from other sources. Nevertheless, it's still very nice.

    My only real complaint is the cuff. It's semi-rigid compared to the lesser-priced units and the machine frequently fails to get a reading with this cuff, forcing me to readjust it and try again....more info
  • Omron HEM-790IT REVIEW
    My doctor recommended this company to monitor my blood pressure. I used it for about (3) weeks-works better than expected. It is easy to use and it is very accurate. My doctor liked the charts I printed from my color printer. It was helpful for the doctors review and he asked me to fax another copy in about a month following his advice to lower my blood pressure. I would highly recommend this product....more info
  • 790IT Works Well
    I researched various makes of bp monitors and I wanted one that allowed to hook to a pc for storing and graphics the results. The Omron 790IT was one I chose and am so far very happy for using past-month. I was able to choose multiple readings for each session (morning and nite) and time interval between each down to 15 secs. the unit avgs the result and stores in it. It marks it as morning or nite automatically, inflates and deflates the arm cuff automatically and will display the result until you turn it off. You can recall readings without the pc via local unit menu.
    for those who don't want the hassle of writing down the result, this unit will store over a couple hundred readings and then download to the pc from the software included.
    so far i've run it on the same set of AA batteries with no degradation for 3 morning and 3 nite readings for 1 month.
    Also, I have no complaints with the pc software which reads the unit stored data and allows to graph it any which way (mornings, nites, weekly , weekavg, ytd, morning vs nite difference for both diastolic and systolic readings) and then create a pdf for storing the data.
    fully functioned software....more info
  • OMRON HEM-790IT
    The product works well; I do have a problem with the software. It does not let you edit to add "notes" like medications, exercise etc. When the irregular heartbeat symbol shows in graphs, it does not show in the individual entry of pressure, this is what I take to the Dr. The graphs are impressive if I was taking this to a meeting to impress someone, but this is my life and I want the Dr. to see what the actual readings are with the irregular heartbeat, it does not show up with the individual pressure readings in the PDF format. Must be some 25 y/o programmers with 35 y/o managers approving this stuff. They need someone like a Dr. and or patient that is 50 plus to approve this. I have found software for taking notes online but they go for $30-35, but if you get the regular BP monitor for a cheaper price then get the software that might be better, you just don't have the option to download to your PC....more info
  • Omron Health Management system
    Very satisfied with the product. It performs all funtions as advertised and is easy to use....more info
