The Royal Society of Medicine - Professor Williams talks about a new 'wrist watch' sensor which will revolutionise checks on blood pressure. The device works by calculating pressure in the aorta, the largest artery in the body, which is known to give a different reading from pressure in the arm. The device has been designed by scientists at the University of Leicester and in Singapore. The research was funded by the National Institute for Health Research and Department of Health.
