Smartphones Will Also Be Used To Control Blood Pressure
This Will Allow Patients To Check Their Pressure More Often And Lower The Risk Of Cardiovascular Conditions
Researchers have incorporated a blood pressure monitor into a smartphone. This will allow patients to control blood pressure more frequently, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. It uses changes in blood volume through photoplethysmography (PPG), in which a force transducer will apply pressure. This will help rural areas and developing countries, in which phones are common, but there is little access to medical professionals and medical equipment. Additional information click here.
