High blood pressure is one of the largest public health epidemics in the world, affecting over one billion people according to the World Health Organization and presenting significant risk factors for stroke, heart failure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and kidney disease. Monitoring blood pressure is the first step toward improving it, but it remains challenging to consistently monitor blood pressure in ways that don’t disrupt people’s lives. There are numerous efforts underway to address some of those challenges through wearable technology and devices, from watches to earbuds to clothing and more.

In this webinar, leaders from Omron and Valencell will explore the latest technologies and initiatives designed to navigate the technical challenges, regulatory environment, consumer expectations, and opportunities to make a dent in the global hypertension epidemic.
