Scientists Invent Technology to Revolutionize Blood Pressure Measurement


Scientists at the University of Leicester have developed a groundbreaking device which is expected to revolutionize blood pressure measurement. The device reads the central aortic systolic pressure, the blood pressure close to the heart.

Although the current method of measuring blood pressure in the arm is convenient, it does not always give correct values. High blood pressure can cause damage to the heart, so it is important to measure the blood pressure as close to it as possible.

The new device reads and interprets the pulse wave which is taken by a sensor on the wrist. The results enable scientists to read the central aortic systolic pressure.
