New smartphone app can help monitor your BP The team led by Indian-origin researcher found a convenient point on fingertip New York: To get the accuracy of cuff devices and the convenience of mobile device apps, a team led by an Indian-origin researcher has created a new app and hardware to measure blood pressure.
