Where can you buy this device? I have been calling and emailing Oregon Scientific, IDT, and Nordic Semiconductor to pinpoint this device so we can purchase them...but no one answers any of the phones, no phone messages are returned, and no emails are responded to. Help!? I have checked www.oscientific.com, www2.oregonscientific.com, www.oregonscientific.com and have found nothing.

I thought why IDT is doing blood pressure stuff. This IDT is NOT the LSI company (Integrated Device Technology)...hong-kong based consumer electronics company, mostly producing battery driven small LCD devices such as kitchen timer or pedometers.

4-6 months of carrying an equipment with 4 AA battery seems a bit too much. If it worked with with 1-2 CR2032, the device would be more appealing. On the other hands, measuring blood pressure requires pressure being apply to your arm, how does the device work? Continuous pressure seems to be hurtful to most people.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
