We present a prototype of an integrated blood pressure (BP) and electrocardiogram (ECG) device for multi-parameter physiologic monitoring. A standard BP pressure cuff and an ordinary wristband have been modified to incorporate in them dry ECG electrodes made of thin conductive fabric. The modified BP cuff and wristband are coupled with commercially available hardware and software to harvest simultaneous arterial pulse wave and ECG data from the arm and wrist of the other hand. Software has been written for assessing multiple physiologic parameters from the harvested pulse wave and ECG signals. We provide an initial validation of the performance of our prototype by conducting a study on six healthy subjects.
