This smartphone case has been developed to help you check your blood pressure without the need for a trip to the doctor or your local pharmacy. Developed at Michigan State University, the case works by having the user press their index finger against the embedded sensor to take readings that are accessible via the accompanying app. The onscreen prompts will help the user to maintain the right pressure level to keep them healthy and free from ailments, while the cuff-free design makes it simple to perform from anywhere at any time.
The case is reported to deliver results that aren't as accurate as the traditional arm cuff, but is being fine-tuned by the team behind it to make it even better.
