Abstract
The paper presents design and development of optical blood pressure sensingkit based on Microcontroller and Bluetooth transmission. Blood pressure is one of the important vital signs that need to be monitored for personal healthcare. The aim of this project is to construct an optical system and to monitor blood pressure continuously without use of any cuff or supervision. It is a monitoring system that uses an IR light source and a luminosity sensor to measure the blood pressure. The optical pulsatile method of blood pressure measurement is used to gather pulse data obtained from various parts of body. Blood pressure readings are calculated with the help of developed algorithm and transmitted via Bluetooth module to the computer. Numerical reading values of systolic and diastolic blood pressure are recorded and displayed on the computer.
