This review is for the Omron H-003DS small adult arm cuff.
This cuff (H-003DS) is compatible with the following Omron monitors according to its package: HEM-432C HEM-711AC HEM-705CP
This cuff is NOT compatible with my Omron monitor: HEM-790IT <- Not compatible
I own an Omron HEM-790IT blood pressure monitor, and it is NOT compatible with this cuff. This cuff has an air nozzle that is very narrow, but the HEM-790IT has a hole that is much wider.
I also own a broken HEM-711 (no letters) and this cuff IS compatible with that. I am not sure why Omron uses two different nozzle sizes.
I am a lean 5'11" tall adult male. The cuff that came with the HEM-790IT is too big for me, and it contains a rigid C-shaped piece of plastic, so I cannot get a tight fit on my upper arm. My upper arm is 9.5 inches in circumference.
This cuff (the H-003DS) says it fits 7 to 9 inch arms, but it fits my 9.5 inch arm pretty well. If you are thin, especially if you are a woman, this cuff should fit you.
The cuff that came with the HEM-790IT is much bigger, it only begins to fit if your arm is 12 or 13 inches around. That requires a considerable amount of muscle and/or fat on your arm. I don't understand why they put the rigid C-shaped plastic in it, otherwise it could have been much more versatile.
Thanks to another reviewer who also has an old Omron HEM-704C unit I learned this cuff would work on my machine. As I did not have the funds to buy a totally new machine and an extra cuff I am pleased that I was able to save money buying just the cuff to use on my 92 year old Mum who has very tiny upper arms, and can still use it with the original cuff on myself if need be. I will take it in to the Dr's office to make sure it's reading correctly. Very pleased!
My wife consistently got readings much higher than the doctor measured using the standard ComFit Cuff that came with our Omron HEM-780. We ordered the H-003DS hoping that it would be a better fit to her small arm.
It was described as a Small Adult Blood Pressure Cuff for IntelliSense Monitors, but did not fit our IntelliSense device. The straight gray plastic connector is too small for the hole where the blue right angle connector plugs into our machine.
I read the reviews and several people had the same problem and ended up returning it. We really needed the smaller cuff, so I found that if you pull the tubing loose from the plastic fitting on the old ComFit cuff (the cuff end of the tubing) the straight gray connector of the new smaller cuff will plug into the end of that tubing.
It took a little lubrication, but it works great and as a benefit the tubing length is doubled. I was initially concerned with the longer tubing, but found that Omron sells extension tubing so it is probably OK. It works great, is more comfortable for my wife and gives what appear to be more accurate readings.
The cuff was perfect for my wife, however, the pressure hose did not fit the IntelliSense models that my wife and I have. I have already returned it because it's not usable. Our Omron IntelliSense models are:HEM-790 & HEM-7220. There is a bunch of other numbers, but the HEM numbers is all the identification you need. Be sure that cuff you buy is compatible with your the HEM number of your Omron BP device. I did not HATE IT. The cuff was very well made and it fit much better on my wife's skinny arm than the big cuff that come with the device. Returning the cuff was easy and the refund appeared on my credit card invoice on our next invoice. Amazon's service, including the vendors that they use, is excellent and reliable..I'm still looking for a Small Adult Size Cuff. Hope this helps.
This was for my mother who had very small arms due to lack of muscle mass. When I purchased the unit I didn't know that the standard cuff that came with the unit would have been too big and we were getting seriously inaccurate readings. Her doctor asked me to bring the unit along to her visit and he compared his manual reading to the machine, they were way off. He suggested getting this and It works great.
No one wants to have to buy these things, but when we do , we want a quality product. This small cuff is ideal for both children and in our case, a petite adult. Our cardiologist asked where we purchased the small cuff and complimented us on the purchase of a quality machine as well. He said with THIS machine and THIS cuff we are taking very accurate, trustworthy readings.
