This study involved a usability test of the iProvèn BPM-337BT, a popular wrist-based blood pressure monitor. With the increased variety of off-the-shelf blood pressure monitors, potential risks associated with various designs as well as usability and interaction issues remain unknown for many devices. The goal of this usability study was to discover any potential use errors and issues associated with user interfaces of the FDA-approved iProvèn BPM. Results suggest that the device had dense and unclear instructions, imperceptible icons on the display, and some inconsistencies in the application which could be redesigned to prevent use errors and increase user satisfaction.
