The test is carried out with the SOMNOtouch ™ NIBP monitor manufactured by well known German manufacturer SOMNOmedics. This new model represents the latest generation of ambulatory continuous blood pressure measurement. The blood pressure is derived using the Pulse Transit Time (PPT) technology no more inflating cuff is needed, so would not affect sleeping during the night.
The SOMNOtouch ™ NIBP monitor is used by the Stanford University in conducting major clinical studies.
