Abstract This study investigates whether it is possible to implement a telemedicine system with the already existing technology on the market, to prevent hypertension for overweight people with normal blood pressure. By studying the relationship between weight and blood pressure, it is attempted to develop a telemedicine system by using a sphygmomanometer and a weight measurer, and following the development model unified process that is used to develop IT-systems. This study concludes that it is possible to develop a telemedicine system to prevent hypertension for overweight people with normal blood pressure by using existing technologies. But the study has also shown that it is more useful to examine the relationship between cholesterol and hypertension instead of weight measurement, because weight measurement is not clinically reported in a clinical context.
