Both an increase or a decrease in blood pressure are considered disastrous for health.

Usually, a special machine is used to check blood pressure, whose cuff is placed on a specific part of the arm and reading is obtained.

But now the world’s first cuffless blood pressure monitor has been developed, on which it is possible to know blood pressure readings only by placing a finger.

A company called Valensell has developed this blood pressure monitor, which was presented at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

According to the company, it is possible to know blood pressure from this monitor with a fingerprint clip instead of putting a cuff on the top of the arm.

Usually, such a method is used to know the speed of the heartbeat, but it will make it much easier to know blood pressure.

The device has not yet been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but the company said the sensors in the device check blood flow.

Later, these details reach an algorithm that tells blood pressure readings by taking different elements into account.

The device’s sensors were provided with data from 7,000 hypertension patients for training.

Systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure numbers appear on the screen and are also provided on the mobile app.

The company hopes that this device will be successful in the fight against high blood pressure while it can be easily used everywhere.

It is priced at $99, but will go on sale after approval from medical regulators.
