There are more than 10,000 free-standing blood pressure health stations located in pharmacies and retail stores around the country. Supplied by Lifeclinic from Spacelabs Medical, the stations use touch-screen menus to make it easy for people to take and print out their own blood pressure and pulse readings free of charge.
In order to find the nearest stations, go to www.bloodpressure.com, and click on ?FREE Blood Pressure Health Station Locator.? After keying in a zip code on the screen, as many as 10 blood pressure stations within 5 or more miles of the zip code area will come up on the screen. The results consist of a list of location store names, their addresses, and a map providing directions.
