Researchers at Purdue University are developing a low-cost app and a wearable blood pressure cuff that syncs to the user’s smartphone to detect signs of preeclampsia – a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure. The device is designed to measure whether a woman’s blood pressure increases when she changes position from lying on her left side to lying on her back.
In November 2017, the researchers received a $100,000 Grand Challenges Explorations grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “The Gates Foundation is looking for something that’s going to have an impact in the immediate future in low- and middle-income countries,” said project leader Craig Goergen. The development of this device may have profound implications for women and children worldwide.
