A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11925443B2) discloses a blood pressure monitor that includes a pressing member with a pressure cuff and a sensing cuff, an adjuster to control fluid amounts in the cuffs, a pressure sensor, and a controller. The pressure cuff comprises two fluid bags with through holes for fluid flow, while the sensing cuff has a single bag structure with a slack in a natural state. A back plate is positioned between the cuffs. The controller calculates the blood pressure value based on biometric information and sensor output. An input unit allows for information input, and the monitor can switch between different measurement modes based on the input data.

Furthermore, the patent also covers a blood pressure measurement apparatus and method that involve winding the pressing member and sensing cuff around a subject's measurement site, adjusting fluid amounts, inflating or deflating the pressure cuff, and obtaining the blood pressure value based on the sensor output. The method includes positioning the sensing cuff at the center of the pressure cuff and utilizing a back plate between the cuffs. The controller repeats measurements until the blood pressure variation falls within an acceptable range, ensuring accurate readings. The input unit allows for additional information input, enhancing the precision of the blood pressure calculation process. Overall, the patented technology aims to provide a reliable and efficient blood pressure monitoring solution with improved accuracy and user-friendly features.
