I am a student at Brown University in Providence, RI, USA doing a project on constant blood pressure monitoring. Instead of using a blood pressure cuff, you'd wear a patch or a bracelet-like device that would monitor your blood pressure 24/7 and you'd be able to track your measurements on your smartphone or computer.

Do you think such a device would help you monitor your condition better? What are some current problems people have with their blood pressure cuffs?

All responses will be anonymous and will never be published in any way, shape or form beyond this class project. Thank you very much!
