Project Title
Device for at-home monitoring of jugular venous pressure
Design Challenge
Jugular venous pressure (JVP) is an important metric for management of chronic heart failure. Current methods for measuring JVP require frequent clinical evaluation and sometimes also catheterization. We are designing a non-invasive device for patients to accurately and regularly track their JVP, enabling better management of medication dosage and reducing hospitalizations.
