Revolutionary device found to lower blood pressure

A revolutionary device has been shown to significantly lower blood pressure among patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure, compared to those treated with usual drug measures — according to research from Queen Mary University of London and published in The Lancet.

The device — developed by ROX Medical and named the ‘Coupler’ — is a paper clip sized implant which is inserted between the artery and vein in the upper thigh, in a procedure lasting around 40 minutes under local anaesthetic.

I’d say today was a pretty productive day. Too bad I needed one lad 90° coupler t9 finish it and all the performance shops were closed. Boost controller is set at 9 psi and it pulls noticeably harder than stock.
