A group of engineers at Monash University in Australia have invented an innovative blood pressure system that is well capable of being worn for hours at a time, and that can transmit real-time data without the use of a cable.

The system comprises a bunch of very small sensors that are worn against the skin and located near arteries. These sensors go about measuring the amount of time it takes blood to travel between different sensors, and uses that data to figure out the patient's blood pressure.

The next step for this blood pressure system prototype is to commercialize it, and that is set to be happen very soon. Once this blood pressure system is out on the market, it will surely make it easier than ever for doctors to stay on top of blood pressure readings.
