PITTSBURGH, Dec. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "I work as a nurse, and I have noticed that when I take patients' blood pressure, their heart rate often increases as soon as I put the cold cuff on their arm," said an inventor from Gainesville, Ga. "To avoid this, I came up with a warmer cuff that will not shock patients with how cold it is."
She developed the COMFY CUFF to allow a blood-pressure reading to be taken more comfortably. The design prevents the patient from experiencing a chill as the cuff is put on. It ensures that the patient remains warm and at ease. The unit helps to prevent a temporary increase in heart rate as the result of a cold cuff being applied, which could mean better accuracy in medicine dosing. Additionally, the easy-to-use invention makes the process less stressful for both the patient and caregiver.
The original design was submitted to the Atlanta sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
