A non-invasive portable device that measures and tracks several physiological parameters in real-time to determine cardiovascular and health conditions

Project description

Small portable device for real-time blood pressure monitoring

Blood pressure measures the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats and when it rests, and it is conventionally monitored using manually operated or automatic sphygmomanometers. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, negatively impacts the function of the heart and increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. The EU-funded Finger Port project aims to address the unmet need for the easy and convenient monitoring of blood pressure in real time or frequently during the day. Researchers have developed a small portable device that encompasses a ring-shaped sensor to measure blood pressure via a person’s finger. The Finger Port device can be linked to any smartphone, allowing end users and doctors immediate access to patient data.
