LifeSource UA-767 Blood Pressure Monitor

LifeSource UA-767 Upper Arm Monitor

The LifeSource UA-767, also known as the LifeSource Advanced One Step Auto Inflate Blood Pressure Monitor, is part of the line of personal blood pressure machines produced by A&D Medical, which also manufactures many medical products utilized by doctors in hospitals and ambulances.

This review will give you a detailed breakdown of the UA-767 so that you can decide if it is the right device for your health needs.

This monitor is perfect for users seeking an easy-to-use device that is also both accurate and affordable. It even comes with a lifetime warranty, which is not common in today’s market.

The simplicity of this machine makes it a great option for first-time buyers.

Simple, One Button Operation

If you want to track your health on a daily basis without dealing with overcomplicated or extraneous features, this monitor provides the bare essentials necessary to effectively manage hypertension.

There is no need to worry about pressing the wrong button because there is only one button to operate this monitor. Simply press the Start button to power on the monitor, properly apply the arm cuff, then press the Start button once more to take a measurement.

The process for taking a blood pressure reading couldn’t be any simpler than putting on the cuff and pressing one button!

Reliable Accuracy

The UA-767 has been clinically tested and validated for accuracy, enabling users to obtain professional quality results from home.

It has been approved by authoritative groups such as the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the European Society of Hypertension.

The auto-inflate cuff automatically inflates to the correct pressure for each measurement to deliver consistently accurate results, which is the most important feature of any home monitoring unit.

Determine Your Cuff Size

The LifeSource UA-767 is not available with a one-size-fits-all cuff; rather, there are 3 different versions of the same monitor sold with cuffs targeted to fit small, medium, and large arms.

UPDATE: The A&D Medical UA-767F is an updated version of the UA-767 which comes with a customizable cuff that is catered towards medium and large arms. See the table below for the exact measurements.

Do not worry if there will be multiple users of the monitor that have different arm sizes, as LifeSource also sells the individual cuffs separately.

The various cuff sizes and the upper arm circumference that each one fits are shown in the table below to help you decide which version best suits your needs. It is crucial to select the correct cuff size in order to obtain accurate readings.

Wearing too small of a cuff tends to yield a higher than expected reading whereas too large of a cuff results in a lower reading than expected.

90 Reading Memory Capacity

The monitor doesn’t quite have the extensive memory capacity offered by more advanced options such as the Omron BP785, but the 90 reading memory will let you review 3 months’ worth of measurements.

UPDATE: The A&D Medical UA-767F mentioned above has the capacity to store 60 readings for 4 separate users. It turns out the ‘F’ in UA-767F is for Families for this reason.

Each measurement records your current systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and pulse rate.

Additionally, the average of all readings stored in the memory is automatically calculated with the average reading feature, allowing you to easily track your health progress over time.

The monitor also comes with a 4-week blood pressure logbook to help you develop a habit of constantly recording and updating your blood pressure and pulse readings.

Large Screen Easily Legible for All Ages

The large LCD display and buttons on this monitor are easily legible for all ages. The screen is very easy to read and only shows you the 3 numbers that matter the most (systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and pulse rate) without unnecessary symbols cluttering the display.

The newer version of the UA-767, known as the UA-767F and shown below, also displays and records the date and time concurrently with the health measurements.

We are big fans of the simple display and believe LifeSource does a great job only showing you what you need to know without providing extraneous information.

Important Feature You Shouldn’t Overlook

This machine comes standard with an Irregular Heartbeat Detector, which is an invaluable feature usually only available for more expensive monitors.

During each BP reading, the device checks for irregular heartbeats and clearly displays a symbol on the LCD screen if it detects an irregular heartbeat.

The meter also adjusts the measurements when irregular heartbeats are detected in order to provide accurate blood pressure and pulse rate readings.

Lifetime Warranty

Unlike many blood pressure meters that only come with a 1-year or 5-year warranty, this monitor and the accompanying cuff are fully-backed by a lifetime warranty.

The lifetime warranty is a great aspect of purchasing this machine and offers you as the buyer peace of mind knowing that if something breaks, no additional out-of-pocket expenses are incurred. Rather, just contact the customer support team and they will assist you in getting the product working again.

Multiple Power Options – Batteries & AC Adapter

This device can be powered using batteries or with an AC Power Adapter (sold separately). If you are wanting to travel with the monitor, then powering the machine with rechargeable batteries would be the more convenient option.

However, the one-time expense of purchasing the AC Adapter will save you from having to buy replacement batteries for the life of the monitor (it is backed by a lifetime warranty, after all). This AC Power Adapter even comes with a European outlet adapter, which will be useful when travelling internationally.

If you do choose to use batteries, current users of this machine report that the batteries will last for a long time even with using the monitor on a daily basis.
