Hacking a UART on a blood pressure cuff

Hacking a UART on a blood pressure cuff

moamindustries.com hacked an Omron RS8 blood pressure cuff by adding a UART interface to it.

As part of a prototype developed 12 months ago I was tasked with reading measurements from a blood pressure cuff [sphygmomanometer] in real time. Not surprisingly there are no consumer level devices that have a serial interface because what ‘normal’ person would want such a thing!

Initially we considered our own interface for a blood pressure cuff. Just run the pump and take the readings with our own processor and pressure sensor, how hard can it be.
