What inspired you to make this project?:
In our lab, we strive to solve big medical problems. Hypertension is a disease that affects 1 in 3 Americans and leads to the number one cause of death in the world - heart disease. The blood pressure cuff hasn't been reinvented in over a century, which inspired us to find a better way to monitor blood pressure.
