Great angle! I wonder what medical instrument this is. A tensimeter?

Cool shot of the sphygmomanometer. Many years ago, I worked with the gentleman who invented it.

Is that a sphygmomanometer? It's kinda dark for a sphygmomanometer. I'd only seen sphygmomanometers with white backgrounds. I wonder how many times I spelled sphygmomanometer correctly.

I would not know a sphygmomanometer or what it is used for if I saw one, but it's a nice shot! I can hardly even spell it and my spell check does not agree either!
