Yu, J. Y., Huang, D. F., Li, Y., & Zhang, Y. T. (2009). Implementation of MP3 player for music therapy on hypertension. 2009 Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, , 6444-6447. doi:10.1109/IEMBS.2009.5333538
Hypertension is a common clinical disease and a major risk to human health. Many clinical findings indicate that certain types of music can reduce blood pressure (BP), and music therapy is considered as an important part of anti-hypertension treatment. We integrate our former related research achievement into the new MP3 player, which can also detect the current BP value with a cuffless measurement method. According to the current BP value, the MP3 player selects certain types of music for playing in order to alleviate the hypertension of patients.
