Blood Pressure Monitor for Blind People

Mar 21, 2011
Checking your blood pressure regularly is essential for health and is a lot more difficult for blind people.

Tensio blood pressure monitor designed by Diana Dumitrescu is a concept now, but will soon become more than just a nice health gadget.

This blood pressure monitor in a form of an electronic wristband tracks your blood pressure without the necessity to use your sight for this purpose.


The flexible wristband is made of inflatable foam, where the results appear on a display in Braille form, the system that lets blind people read using their tactile sensation.

The Tensio Blood pressure monitor is also a great first aid device that can wirelessly call for help in case of emergency.
