AdvancedBPM is a revolutionary solution in blood pressure diagnosis and management. Unlike conventional cuff-based blood pressure monitors, AdvancedBPM is a cuffless, wrist-worn sensor that continuously measures a patient’s blood pressure, heart rate and pulse oximetry. A mobile device receives data from the sensor and wirelessly sends this information to a website. With AdvancedBPM a physician can monitor a patient’s vital signs over a 24-hour period while the patient goes about their daily life.
