Monitor for Rapid, Cost-effective Assessment of Peripheral Vascular
Function – Translation to Clinical Practice
Elham is interested in investigating
biological signals for the use of noninvasive diagnosis, and her project
focuses on developing a peripheral monitoring device, called HeMo, which can
enable early diagnosis of PVDs. This device has a fabric-elasticated cuff
incorporating two electro-resistive band sensors, which enable measuring the
changes in blood volume due to both postural changes and arterial inflow.
Preliminary results derived from Elham's project show that this device has the
potential to be used for nonivasive diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease
and chronic venous insufficiency.
