In recent years, the use of accelerometer data in biosensors, which tracks physical activity levels and mobility, has gained more attention. Accelerometers offer enormous promise in the field of blood pressure measurement in addition to being utilized for physical activity monitoring. It is possible to utilize it as a sensor to measure ballistocardiograms (BCG) and seismocardiograms (SCG), which can be used to forecast blood pressure. Accelerated plethysmograms can also be monitored in real-time with accelerometer-based devices. More importantly, three-dimensional accelerometer data can provide physiological information and can therefore be used to forecast blood pressure. Other research claims to be able to measure pulse transit time (PTT) and, consequently, blood pressure using opto-accelerometers. The data produced by the accelerometer can be used as contextual information in blood pressure prediction models and is essential for preventing motion artifact in physiological signals. These appealing factors lead us to investigate the importance of accelerometer data in this field. This review intends to explore the significance of accelerometer data in blood pressure monitoring, emphasizing its possible effects on clinical practice and public health.
