Blood Pressure Machines

A couple barber shops in Rockford are finding ways to help customers inside and out.

Vern's barbershop on College Avenue and Sharper Styles and Cuts on West State now have blood pressure machines.

It's part of the Winnebago County Health Department’s efforts to increase blood pressure measurement access in the minority community. The Booker Washington Center on Kent Street also has a machine.

They measure heart rate and body weight and can store personal data.
