This WG is aimed to benchmark, assess and select suitable devices for office BP monitoring in children and adolescents that fulfil the overall criteria of the universally acceptable standard (AAMI/ESH/ISO).

Specific Tasks


Define the criteria to benchmark the different BP measurement devices according to the different BP measurements and BP methods.


Analyse the criteria for validation and the clinical issues affecting the validation procedure.


Generate a map of equivalences among most used BP measurement devices available on the market.


Evaluate new device proposals in order to find out its potential in non-intrusive, non-stigmatizing BP measurement platforms.


Analyse and agree on the new developments to fill the present gaps among clinical practitioners and decision-makers as well as the industrial partners.

Key results


Benchmark report according to the different BP methods and measurements.


Guide for device accuracy and quality criteria for the main specific use in children and adolescents.
