Phoenix study group

Phoenix Study Group

The Phoenix Project is a study group of the Twin Cities IEEE to develop an ambulatory blood pressure monitor for the Halberg Chronobiology Center at the University of Minnesota.

Our goal is to make a monitor that is inexpensive, unobtrusive, easy to use and collects a week of blood pressure measurements.

The Halberg Chronobiology Center wants to use the monitor for long term use on massive scale to obtain measures in health, and to encourage the development of diagnostic, prevention and treatment techniques.
