TBME, Featured ArticlesTowards Ubiquitous Blood Pressure Monitoring via Pulse Transit Time: Theory and Practice
Ramakrishna Mukkamala, Jin-Oh Hahn, Omer T. Inan, Lalit K. Mestha, Chang-Sei Kim, Hakan Toreyin, Survi Kyal
Ubiquitous blood pressure monitoring is on the horizon for two reasons. One reason is a profound need. Hypertension is a major cardiovascular risk factor that is treatable, yet high blood pressure detection and control rates are abysmally low, especially in... Read more

TBME, Featured ArticlesBallistocardiogram-Based Approach to Cuff-Less Blood Pressure Monitoring: Proof-of-Concept and Potential Challenges
The goal of this study was to propose and establish the proof-of-concept of an ultra-convenient cuffless blood pressure (BP) monitoring approach based on the ballistocardiogram (BCG). The proposed approach monitors systolic and diastolic BP (SP and DP) independently by exploiting... Read more

Here we show an enhanced powered guide wired helical millirobot for mechanical thrombectomy in cardiovascular intervention capable of autonomous therapeutics. We build up and demonstrate a millimeter robot fabrication with a spherical joint and a guidewire, a high-power and frequency actuation via external electromagnetic field control, and autonomous therapeutic motions comprise driving, steering, and drilling. We validate all performances in two-dimensional fluidic channels mimicking the vascular network and finally in-vivo environments. Beyond nature-inspired millirobot technologies, our work has the potential of advanced mechanical thrombectomy application and advancement of micrometer and millimeter robot technology toward real clinical utilization...
