Thesis Title

Hemodynamic Monitor for Rapid, Cost-effective Assessment of Peripheral Vascular Function

Research Project

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.
