The blood pressure monitoring market is currently dominated by cuff-based blood pressure monitors which have numerous shortcomings. The current products are not only bulky and restrictive but they also inflate the cuffs to an uncomfortable degree while in use. This leads to the second major drawback, which is the inability to provide the user with continuous readings of their blood pressure.  Our product aims to cover those shortcomings and provide users with a more seamless blood pressure measurement experience that does not hinder their daily lives while providing accurate and continuous measurements of their blood pressure to give them better insight into their health condition. The device will be wearable and will be composed of two main subsystems: The first part is a wearable hardware subsystem which will contain the required sensors, a microcontroller, and a bluetooth module to communicate with the second subsystem. And the second main part is a software subsystem in the form of a mobile app that will receive the data from the wearable device, analyze it, and display the results to the user
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
