Decades of Dedication

We are continually committed into researching and developing the best innovative way to monitor blood pressure for global clinical and healthcare organisations.

Proven over Decades

Our founders have dedicated their careers to research and development of a clinically accurate, reliable, and convenient way to monitor blood pressure at home 24/7.

We turn insights into
action in the fight against hypertension.

At Aktiia, we harness the power of data to inform and engage people with hypertension and to enable physicians to deliver more targeted and timely care.

Cuffless Blood Pressure R&D Process

30+ techniques tested, 10+ studies conducted;
1 proven solution: Optical Blood Pressure Monitoring

Josep Solà defends his PhD thesis

His research on continuous non-invasive BP estimation is the technology behind Aktiia’s monitoring solutions.

Aktiia is founded

Clinical Trial Confirms Accuracy of Cuffless BP Monitoring

Aktiia’s clinical trial, highlighted in Blood Pressure Monitoring journal, demonstrates its optical device’s accuracy in measuring blood pressure without cuffs, compared to traditional arterial line methods.

Aktiia's Clinical Trial Validates Cuffless BP Monitoring Versus Auscultation

Aktiia’s trial successfully compares its cuffless BP monitoring technology against traditional auscultation methods, ensuring accuracy during posture changes. This supports the device’s use for consistent 24-hour blood pressure tracking.

Aktiia earns the CE mark

Aktiia is classified as a Class IIa Medical Device, adhering to the highest safety and performance standards in the European Union.

Aktiia debuts in the UK Market

Aktiia continues its expansion, offering its advanced health monitoring technologies to the UK audience.
