Ballistocardiogram-Based Approach to Cuff-Less Blood Pressure Monitoring: Proof-of-Concept and Potential Challenges
We propose an ultra-convenient cuffless blood pressure (BP) monitoring approach based on the ballistocardiogram (BCG). The approach monitors BP using two mechanistically derived features in the whole-body, head-to-foot BCG: the time interval between the first and second major waves for DP, and the amplitude between the second and third major waves for pulse BP (PP; which can be added to DP to yield SP). The proposed approach can complement the conventional pulse transit time technique in two ways.

Ubiquitous blood pressure monitoring is on the horizon for two reasons. One reason is a profound need…
