Non-Invasive screening of cardiovascular diseases

The main objectives of this project are to develop multi-parameter sensors, and signal processing techniques for the non-invasive and continuous mapping of physiological and haemodynamic parameters. The output will be the non-invasive screening of pathologies relating to cardiovascular diseases (peripheral vascular (artery/vein) disease, lower limb claudication, atherosclerosis, carotid artery disease, hypertension, stroke, etc.). Some of the targeted parameters will be pulse transit time (PTT), pulse wave velocity (PWV), blood flow, blood volume, arterial and venous oxygen saturation, blood pressure, etc.
