<p>Home-bound aged elders and elderly patients face many problems regarding their critical health parameter variations and timely assistance in case of emergencies. Monitoring of critical health parameters is very much needed when they suffer from severe heath issues related to heart, blood pressure (BP), pulse rate etc. A constant and reliable assistive technology is essential while taking care of home-bound patients. Of many parameters to be monitored, this study paper mainly deals with the BP monitoring of elderly and various existing methods to measure the BP. The paper points out how each technology is dominated over its past technology. In this paper we focus on comparing all existing technologies and conclude on the technology which can be most useful in elderly to monitor their blood Pressure. © 2012 IEEE.</p>
