Bold Diagnostics


Bold diagnostics is developing a wearable cuffless blood pressure monitor.

How it works? It uses sensors to determine the difference in pulse wave arrival times between the right and left hands to obtain real-time blood pressure trends. Their preliminary clinical studies demonstrate a consistent difference in pulse arrival times and a strong correlation to changes in blood pressure. Building on these findings they have a pretty cool concept to measure one's blood pressure.


Bold Diagnostics is a venture formed through the Center for Device Development (CD2) at Northwestern’s Innovation and New Ventures Office (INVO)
