Then the blood pressure belt will be attached to the lower legs and in will turn be inflated. The inflating of the belts can be a bit painful. The same will happen to the upper arms. By means of an calculation can be decided if the blood flow to the legs is inadequate. The examination will be carried out by the practice assistant.
