Posted on

A team of researchers, led by Professor Daniel Franklin (BME) at U of T Engineering, and Dr. Andreas Tzavelis and Professor John Rogers at Northwestern University, has unveiled a new wearable medical device system designed to transform cardiovascular monitoring.  

This device integrates multiple sensory modalities to provide a comprehensive assessment of hemodynamic status — the measurement of cardiovascular functioning, including how blood flows through blood vessels — surpassing conventional blood pressure monitoring. The findings were published in Nature Biomedical Engineering.
