Understanding and tracking weight and blood pressure is an important part of wellness. A record of readings taken over time can provide you and your healthcare provider a clearer picture of your numbers.
Faculty and staff can check blood pressure and weight with Higi machines – making staying on top of your health numbers convenient, simple, fun, and rewarding!
Vanderbilt has 2 Higi stations on campus. They can be found at the Courtyard Café and Sarratt Student Center (across from the Last Drop Coffee Shop).
Higi machines can also be found across the US. Use the higi locator to find a station near you!
