Korean researchers develop wearable piezoelectric BP sensor
A analysis workforce from the Korea Superior Institute of Science and Expertise has developed a wearable piezoelectric blood stress sensor, which is alleged to be extra delicate in comparison with its PPG-based counterpart.
Based on a press launch, ultrathin piezoelectric sensors exhibit “conformal contact” with the pores and skin to gather correct blood stress from refined pulses.
A scientific trial at St. Mary’s Hospital of the Catholic College of Korea has validated the accuracy of the piezoelectric sensor, recording errors inside ±5 mmHg and a normal deviation below 8 mmHg for each systolic and diastolic blood stress.
The reseachers have additionally embedded the sensor right into a watch to allow steady BP monitoring.
