The Fysic FB-50 blood pressure moni-
tor is developed to easily and precisely
measure your blood pressure.
By regularly checking your blood pres-
sure at home, you can provide your doc-
tor with valuable information about your
actual everyday blood pressure.
DECLARATION OF CONFORMITY
This product meets the requirements of
EC Directive 93/42/EEC
(Medical Equipment Directive).
The declaration of conformity is avail-
able on the website WWW.FYSIC.COM
We recommend you to remove the bat-
teries from the blood pressure monitor
when not using the FB-50 for a long
period of time (>2 months).
Do not simply throw away empty
or exhausted batteries, always
hand them over to your local
depot for Small Chemical Waste.
Guidelines for accurate measure-
• Always take measurements at the
same time of the day (preferably in
the morning) and under the same
• Never take measurements within half
an hour after drinking coffee or tea
or after smoking a cigar or cigarette.
• Relax and sit down during mea-
surements, don’t speak or move.
You should relax your arm and put
it in front of you with the cuff at the
height of your heart.
• Wait approx. 3 minutes before taking
the next measurement.
• Blood circulation should not be
impeded, tight clothing and other
objects should be removed.
Attaching the cuff:
Remove clothing or roll up the sleeve,
exposing the left wrist. With the left arm
free of clothing and possibly a bracelet
or watch, attach the cuff to the exposed
Make sure the cuff is resting approxi-
mately 1 cm underneath the palm of the

Taking a measurement:
Attention: you can interrupt the measure-
ment at any moment by pressing the 0/I
button. The FB-50 will then switch itself
off instantly and the cuff will deflate.
Rest the arm on e.g. a rolled-
up towel to keep the blood
pressure monitor at the height
of your heart.
1. Press the 0/I button to turn on the
2. The built-in pump will start to pressur-
ize the cuff. It’s possible for the pump
to start again once or twice to build
up some more pressure.
3. As soon as the desired pressure is
reached, the pump will stop while the
cuff gradually deflates;
• while deflating, the blood pressure
and heart rate are measured
• when the measurement is finished,
the display will show the blood
pressure (both the systolic and dia-
stolic blood pressure) and the heart
rate while the cuff will fully deflate
• the measured blood pressure and
heart rate are automatically stored
in the memory
4. The FB-50 will switch itself off auto-
matically after 3 minutes of you can
turn off the FB-50 quicker by pressing
the 0/I button.
Each measurement is automatically
stored in the memory. The memory has
a capacity for 90 measurements. When
the memory is full, each new measure-
ment will erase the oldest stored mea-
Checking the memory:
• Press the M. button to display the
average of the last 3 measurements.
• Press the M. button again, ‘01’ will

Erasing the memory:
• Make sure to turn on the FB-50.
• Press and hold the M button for
approx. 5 seconds until ‘CLr’ appears
in the display. All measure-
ments stored in the memory
will now be deleted.
• This product is intended only for
household use and for use by adults.
• Keep the product and batteries out of
reach of children.
• People suffering from cardiac
arrhythmia, vascular constriction,
arteriosclerosis (hardening of the
arteries) in the upper or lower limbs,
diabetes and heart patients with
pacemakers should consult their
doctor before measuring their blood
pressure, because in these cases
deviating blood pressure values
could be measured.
• If you’re undergoing medical treat-
ment or if you’re using medicine, we
recommend you to always consult
your doctor when in doubt.
• The use of this blood pressure
monitor should not be regarded as a
replacement for consulting your doc-
Depending on the person and situation,
a normal blood pressure is:
• lower value (DIA): < 90
• upper value (SYS): < 140
In case of ‘light hypertension’, the blood
• lower value (DIA): 90-110
• upper value (SYS): 140-180
In case of ‘serious hypertension’, the
blood pressure is:
• lower value (DIA): >110
• upper value (SYS): >180
During the entire day, our blood pres-
sure is continuously undergoing chang-
es. In the morning it rises heavily and
at the end of the morning it goes down
again. In the late afternoon our blood
pressure rises yet again, while it settles
on a low level at night. This is why your
measurements can vary when taken at
different times of the day.
1. Remove the battery compartment
cover at the right side of the blood
2. Insert 2 AA 1.5V batteries according
to the correct polarity (see markings
inside the battery compartment).
Due to insufficient voltage, never
install rechargeable batteries.
3. Place the battery compartment cover
back onto the blood pressure monitor.
Batteries are not included
Change the batteries as soon as the
