The Japanese Society of Internal Medicine and its seven related organizations, in announcing its diagnostic criteria for metabolic syndrome on April 8, 2005, demonstrated the importance of lifestyle change in minimizing the syndrome's effects. Needless to say, the control required to change lifestyles is difficult to cultivate and to continue. We looked at how self-control is supported using a home-use sphygmomanometer, or blood-pressure meter, detailing an actual development case centering on the “compliance with measurement” concept.
