Wearable sensors to continuously measure blood pressure and derived cardiovascular variables have the potential to revolutionize patient monitoring. Current wearable methods analyzing time components (e.g., pulse transit time) still lack clinical accuracy, whereas existing technologies for direct blood pressure measurement are too bulky. Here we present an innovative art of continuous noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring (CNAP2GO). It directly measures blood pressure by using a volume control… Expand
Control Method for Continuous Non-Invasive Arterial Pressure Monitoring using the Non-Pulsatile Component of the PPG Signal
We propose a new technique enabling continuous control of transmural pressure using the non-pulsatile (DC) component in the PPG signal as feedback. Photoplethysmograph (PPG) contact pressure has aExpand

External Factors that Affect the Photoplethysmography Waveforms
Photoplethysmography (PPG) is a simple and cost-effective technology used in many smart devices to monitor cardiovascular health. The PPG sensors use LED lights to penetrate into the bloodstream toExpand


Continuous cuff-less blood pressure monitoring based on the pulse arrival time approach: The impact of posture
The results show the failure of blood pressure inference based on simple calibration strategies using the PAT measure only, and emphasize the importance of accessing context information in personal healthcare applications, where vital sign monitoring is typically unsupervised. Expand
Cuffless Blood Pressure Monitoring: Promises and Challenges.
The progression in the field, particularly in the last 5 years, is discussed, ending with sensor-based approaches that incorporate machine learning algorithms to personalized medicine. Expand
Wearable hemodynamic sensor
It is possible to obtain an absolute value at an early stage, the conversion function, a BP signal obtained by the finger or the wrist can be converted to true BP value at the level of the heart that corresponds to the brachial artery. Expand
Smartphone-based blood pressure monitoring via the oscillometric finger-pressing method
A smartphone-based device for cuff-less and calibration-free monitoring of systolic and diastolic blood pressure is comparable to cuff-based devices and extended the oscillometric principle, which is used by most automatic cuff devices, to develop a cuff-without BP monitoring device using a smartphone.

The first study comparing a wearable watch‐type blood pressure monitor with a conventional ambulatory blood pressure monitor on in‐office and out‐of‐office settings
The authors have conducted the first comparison study of BPs measured by a recently developed wrist‐worn watch‐type oscillometric BP monitoring (WBPM) device, the “HeartGuide,” and found the difference between the WBPM and ABPM device was acceptable both in and out of the office. Expand
Conformable amplified lead zirconate titanate sensors with enhanced piezoelectric response for cutaneous pressure monitoring.
Experimental and theoretical studies reveal enhanced piezoelectric responses in lead zirconate titanate that follow from integration on soft supports as well as engineering behaviours of the associated devices, which demonstrate capabilities for measuring radial artery augmentation index and pulse pressure velocity.

CNAP – Evolution of Continuous Non-Invasive Arterial Blood Pressure Monitoring
CNAP concentrates on the clinically important BPinformation such as absolute BP and BP-changes as well as physiological BP-rhythms andBP-waveforms, where other hemodynamic parameters like cardiac output (CO) and dynamic fluid management parameters (e.g. pulse pressure variation PPV) can be derived.
