Apple plans to introduce a new sensor in future versions of its Apple Watch to accurately measure blood pressure without the need for extra use such as bracelet.
Cupertino's company is focused on all its efforts in providing a smartwatch full of benefits related to monitoring the health of its consumers. And that nothing sells better than a watch that can save lives.
One of the first Apple Watch health careers was the road heart ratethat is, the power of measuring the momentum of the user. But no models of Apple Watch models have high blood pressure because it is a task that requires more sensitive sensors.

Apple is a patent file on the Apple Watch
Apple employees have filed a new permit for the company entitled "Pressure Measurement Designs." Patent 10,646,121 describes how to accurately measure blood pressure without the need for additional equipment.
This would mean nothing that would allow an increase in the number of people who could test their blood pressure. They will only need their Apple Watch, they won't need a purchase or a bracelet to do it.
The patent thus defines blood pressure in an accessible device:
"Measuring blood pressure can be very helpful to monitor one or more user parameters. For example, blood pressure measurements can help measure hypertension because it is an indicator of potential health problems."
In addition, the patent also indicates that pressure measurements can be and reflect the user's heart rate. In some cases, pressure measurements can provide blood morphologies, which should be noted.

What Apple proposes for this patent, instead of having sensors attached to a bracelet or any other supplement, the watch itself implants. A a combination of software and hardware It will ensure that the sensors calculate accurate readings.
"A set of nerves can increase the power of at least one pressure sensor at least in the artery."
These devices can help alleviate problems with signal correction, since domains of one or more pressure sensors can be identified from the sensor nodes and signed pressure sensors may require minimal error correction or processing.
In any case, Apple's patent does not use the words "Apple Watch" at any time, but refers to a device worn on the wrist. So it would not be too far to assume that the apple bite company planned to introduce a different device, even though it might not. In fact, in the patent itself Apple points out that the intention is to increase the adoption of non-clinical compression methods.

Patent talks about ways to high blood pressure not moving. By default, they explain that the dielectric layer may include a type of strand that acts as a support for the distal electrodes in relation to the quantity of the electrodes showing the toxicity. Lines that, in theory, would be placed in the spaces left by the adjacent areas of the area.
The designation of this patent is available from Ravi K. Narasimhan, Zijing Zeng and Zhipeng Zhang. Among some of Beijing Zeng's previous patents we find related to the article "Wrist Accelerometer for Transit Time Pulse Pressure Measurements." As for Zhipeng Zhang, he has another patent related to the article "The wearable electronic device with biological parameter sensors".
Before concluding, it's interesting to remember that the Apple Watch recently became part of a research project on hypertension and body mass index developed by the Framington Heart Study. What do you think of Apple's new approach?
