  • Patent number: 10582861
    Abstract: The embodiment provides a blood pressure measurement device equipped with an air bag drive unit, a pressing surface formed with pressure sensors, and a control unit which calculates first blood pressure values on the basis of a first pressure pulse wave that was detected by the pressure sensors, generates calibration data using the first blood pressure values, and calculates second blood pressure values by calibrating, using the calibration data, a second pressure pulse wave that is detected by the pressure sensors in a state that the pressing force is set at an optimum pressing force. The control unit performs the processing of calculating second blood pressure values by calibrating the second pressure pulse wave if detection conditions of the second pressure pulse wave coincide with detection conditions of a pressure pulse wave used for generation of the calibration data.
