<p>Frequent blood pressure (BP) assessment is key to the diagnosis and treatment of many severe diseases, such as heart failure, kidney failure, hypertension, and hemodialysis. Current “gold-standard’’ BP measurement techniques require the complete blockage of blood flow, which causes discomfort and disruption to normal activity when the assessment is done repetitively and frequently.</p>


<p>In this work, CU Boulder Assistant Professor of Computer Science <a href="">Tam Vu</a> and his team propose a device called eBP to measure BP from inside the user’s ear aiming to minimize the measurement’s impact on users’ normal activities while maximizing its comfort level.</p>

<h2>Market Application</h2>

<p>This has potential applications for patients with severe diseases that necessitate the monitoring of blood pressure on a daily or consistent basis.</p>
