Presenting Boppli®

Accurate1, non-invasive, continuous, wireless BP monitoring for neonatal patients.

Boppli is a highly-advanced non-invasive blood pressure monitoring device that is ideal for fragile neonatal infants in the NICU. It provides an option for moderately and mildly sick patients who require continuous blood pressure measurements, without the potential complications of an arterial line.

Boppli has the potential to revolutionize the standard of care for continuous blood pressure monitoring for neonates. Our technology is safer than an arterial line. It’s non-invasive, painless, wireless, and silent.

Our NICU Platform:

The Boppli® Band Wearable Sensor


The Bedside Device


The Boppli® Band Wearable Sensor

The Boppli® Band is a single-use, battery-powered blood pressure monitor that uses a thin, flexible sensor to continuously measure blood pressure non-invasively.

The Boppli Band is simply placed on the arm or foot of an infant to obtain a pulse waveform signal. Data is streamed to a bedside device to provide real-time information including mean arterial pressure, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and pulse rate.


Advanced Sensor




Low Power






72-Hour Wear Time


The Bedside Device

The Boppli Band wirelessly connects to the Boppli® Bedside Device. The Bedside Device enables live monitoring of blood pressure and pulse rate, as well as review of data previously recorded for the current patient with the Boppli® Band.




Accuracy from robust statistical algorithms

Boppli® Impact



One fewer wire.

Less pain and distress, reduced infection and blood clot risk. Easier to hold baby, leading to kangaroo care.



Assurance and comfort.

Assurance their baby is continuously monitored. Comfort knowing their baby is in less pain and distress, and resting more comfortably.



Workload reduction.

Workload reduction increases opportunity for more effective care.



Better informed, more timely decisions.

Boppli’s innovative continuous blood pressure monitoring can enable doctors to noninvasively observe changes of blood pressure in real time, allowing better informed and more timely patient care decisions.


Hospital Administration

Reduced cost and risk.

Lower cost and less risk of adverse events compared to invasive arterial lines.

From the Experts

"I have spent my career working with fragile and critically ill children, and it is clear that we need a safer alternative to monitor blood pressure than arterial catheters. The platform PyrAmes has developed has the potential to reshape medical care and provide vast benefit to patients and clinicians."
