earable biosensors (WBS) will permit continuous cardiovascular (CV) monitoring in a number of novel settings. Benefits may be realized in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of major diseases. WBS, in conjunction with appropriate alarm algorithms, can increase surveillance capabilities for CV catastrophe for high-risk subjects. WBS could also play a(More)
This paper presents a new principle for noninvasive blood pressure measurements through a modified volume-oscillometric technique that eliminates an inflatable pressure cuff, and instead takes advantage of natural hydrostatic pressure changes caused by raising and lowering the subject's arm. This new methodology provides the distinct advantage of using an(More)
This paper presents the underlying principle and accompanying initial validation results towards the development of an optically-based, cuffless blood pressure monitoring method. As opposed to traditional oscillometric techniques, the optical sensor is calibrated with a known patient-controlled hydrostatic perturbation. In particular, the hydrostatic(More)
