Wristband Continually Monitors Blood Pressure #WearableWednesday

NewImage

Medtech-Innovation through industrial cooperation: “Wristband revolutionises blood pressure measurement:

The consequences of high blood pressure are one of the most common causes of death worldwide. Despite this, according to the World Health Organization WHO, fewer than one in two of those affected measures their blood pressure regularly. The main reason for this is that regular measurements are costly. An innovative wrist sensor should now change that.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. The striking part of the news is that this new monitoring concept is less to not invasive (no pumping up of a cuff or IV sensors) and has “promising” accuracy.

    If you could change the text to reflect this news it would be considered as such. I initially thought “How is this news. Wristband Monitors exist for a while and are notoriously inaccurate (reading: useless.”
