In this paper we propose a design using a guiding system, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), IEEE 802.15.1 short-range wireless transmission technology and the Internet to fabricate a blood pressure measurement (BPM) which works in cooperation with a health management system. Our design has many advantages, including being easy to use by the aged, low cost and wireless connectivity. It allows the early detection of high blood pressure and provides a doctor with a means for observing a patient's health over a long period. The guiding system provides video guide features for the measuring steps, reminds the patient of the measurement results and makes suggestions. We propose here a new design to determine the BPM posture in order to increase the BPM reliability.
