Boppli is designed to be a highly-advanced non-invasive blood pressure monitoring device that is ideal for fragile neonatal infants in the NICU. It will provide an option for moderately and mildly sick patients who require continuous blood pressure measurements, without the potential complications of an arterial line.
Boppli has the potential to revolutionize the standard of care for continuous blood pressure monitoring for neonates. Our technology is designed to be easier to use than a standard blood pressure cuff and safer than an arterial line. It’s non-invasive, painless, wireless, and silent.
