Amazing New Wearables That Measure Blood Pressure?
For people like myself that have high blood pressure or hypertension, that headline sounds too good to be true. Is there such a device that can monitor your heart rate, blood pressure and perform an ECG?
Well the answer to that is a resounding yes and it comes in the form of a wristband called the Helo LX, The band does not require traditional cuff that you would normally use for measuring blood pressure, instead, he uses a microprocessor called the Toshiba TZ series. Of course, the manufacturers put out a disclaimer saying that you should not use this device for diagnosis but more for consumer level monitoring. When compared to the hall monitor or even a hospital Dinamap monitor the results were impressively close.
What’s even cooler is that you can share your results using a smartphone app with people such as your doctor or other loved ones that want to keep an eye on your blood pressure.
This device is a game changer for anybody with high blood pressure or hypertension, but that is just the start of the functions in this wristband. It will also monitor your breath rate, steps, distance traveled, calories and even your sleep, fatigue levels and mood.
Again don’t solely use this device for keeping track of your blood pressure but having it is a fantastic way to keep you and your medical professional informed on how you are doing. Remember blood pressure is a silent killer and keeping track of it can be the difference between life and death.
