At the CES 2021 exhibition held in January, a device that can measure blood pressure and heart rate by simply pinching with a thumb and forefinger was announced. This blood pressure measurement device is a circular device that fits comfortably in the palm of the hand, and Leman Micro Devices, a Swiss sensor developer that measures heart rate and blood pressure, and WuQi Technology, which develops Bluetooth chips for small devices, and small Internet of Things. It was developed by Shanghai Minshi Technology, a device developer in China.
The appearance of the blood pressure measuring device allows you to measure blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen concentration, and respiratory rate with medical-level precision by pinching the body with your thumb and forefinger for about 45 seconds. It also has a non-contact thermometer.
The blood pressure measuring device is equipped with a V-Sensor, a sensor that measures blood pressure and heart rate developed by Leman Micro Devices. The V-sensor has a groove into which the index finger enters and can be mounted on a blood pressure measuring device or a smartphone.
According to the company’s explanation, by pinching a device equipped with a V-sensor with your finger, you can measure blood pressure and heart rate with medical-level precision and measure body temperature without touching the target.
Walking and heart rate can also be measured on wearable devices such as the Apple Watch and Fitbit, but depending on the situation, it is not possible to obtain satisfactory and accurate measurements. Lehman’s side is appealing for the accuracy of the measurement value, saying that a device equipped with a V-sensor can measure heart rate and blood pressure more accurately than any wearable device on the market. Devices equipped with V-sensors are expected to be released in 2021. Related information can be found here .
