Under Armour Blood Pressure Patent

Under Armour Patents Sneaker that Measures Blood Pressure

Date: July 06 2019

Under Armour are bringing you one step closer to hooking sneakers up to your veins. Their new patent depicts a sneaker featuring a ‘blood pressure detector’.

The sketch shows a sneaker – which, oddly, looks like a Swooshless Dunk – built with pressure detectors that speak to a Fitbit-style device. Apparently the shoe will use a ‘force actuating mechanism’ to stimulate the plantar venous plexus, which is a series of large veins in the arch of your foot.

There’s no word of when the sneaker will release, but the patent was filed in July 2016, so there’s every chance that prototypes are already up and running. In the meantime, check out Under Armour’s latest on-court weapon here.
