Health Center Kiosk Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is the proper method for taking a Body Content Reading?
    Answer: Sit comfortably with both feet on the floor. Lean forward from the waist placing, elbows locked straight, and the palm of your hands flat on the electrodes on the kiosk. The key to accurate readings is consistent placement at every test.
  2. What is the proper way to take a Blood Pressure reading?
    Answer: Insert your arm through the Blood Pressure cuff till your elbow is past the cuff and resting on the platform inside the cuff sleeve. The cuff should be resting on the upper part of your arm, above the elbow. Once fully inflated and a reading has been achieved the cuff will deflate. This can take anywhere from 30 seconds to one minute. The cuff will not hurt or damage your arm, please do not attempt to withdraw your arm until fully deflated.
  3. Why does my blood pressure change during the day?
    Answer: From the American Heart Association, "Readings can vary throughout the day and can be temporarily influenced by factors such as emotions, diet and medication. A record of readings taken over time can provide you and your healthcare provider a clearer picture of your blood pressure. It can be like a time-lapse picture or movie, providing information on what is happening with your blood pressure over time."
  4. How do I measure my weight?
    Answer: A scale is built into the seat. To ensure an accurate reading, follow the instructions on the screen. Ensure that both feet are entirely off the floor and resting on the lip or arm provided, and no part of your body is touching the floor. This ensures your full weight is on the scale. Once you have lifted your heels onto the lip or step, take the reading as instructed on the screen.
