Sphygmomanometer collar

Much more convenient

Consumer blood-pressure meters (sphygmomanometers) are widely available. Medics sometimes use portable units like this to monitor blood pressure over a day, or longer; the cuff normally attaches to the upper arm.

This can be somewhat inconvenient for the wearer.

Now, BorgCo have produced a blood pressure collar. Worn around the neck, the compact unit inflates itself at preprogrammed intervals and measures blood pressure before deflating again until the next cycle.

Batteries not included.

       Hmm, a bit hard to swallow.

       Only when blood pressure is actually being measured, though.

       I do believe this would be a far safer option for those wishing to indulge in erotic asphyxiation, aka strangulation fetish. The device could have built-in limiters for both time and pressure.

       What you do in the privacy of your own home is nothing to do with anyone else. Too Much Information...
