IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Standards Committee (EMB/Stds Com)
Why Get Involved:
The intent of this standard revision is to establish objective performance evaluation of wearable, cuffless blood pressure (BP) measuring devices. The standard is independent of the form of the device or the vehicle to which the device is attached or in which it is embedded. The standard is applicable to all types of wearable BP measurement devices that have different modes of operation (e.g., to measure short-term, long-term, snapshot, continuous, beat(s)-to-beat(s) BP, or BP variability).
Who Should Participate:
- Wearable BP device developers and manufacturers
- Potential purchasers/users: hospitals, health care professionals, patients
- Healthcare data managers
- Medical researchers
- Technical experts
- Clinical Practitioners
- Government Regulators
- Other parties that have a material interest in developing this standard
