Underwear that senses Blood Pressure!

Here’s a new underwear that senses blood pressure.  Maybe there’s some nice uses for this in the medical field.

However, researchers have recently found that a person’s “pulse wave velocity” is closely linked to blood pressure. This is the rate at which the pulse pressure wave passes through the blood circulatory system.

Sensors sewn into the waistband of a person’s underpants can measure the rate of this wave, consumer electronics company Philips has discovered, and could be used to calculate blood pressure for as long as the garment is worn.

    This is a very interesting method of measuring blood pressure. I guess one of the benefits is that it would provide an accurate reading and give the ability to take multiple measurements over time.
