Alternative method of treating high blood pressure that doesn’t involve drugs
High blood pressure is the greatest health risk globally. For many patients, drugs don’t work and/or have horrible side-effects, also many patients don’t want to have to take drugs for the rest of their lives.
We are looking to develop an alternative method of treating high blood pressure that doesn’t involve drugs. This device based approach uses a mild electrical current to non-invasively stimulate the nervous system which has been shown produces fall in blood pressure lasting many weeks.
