Abstract: Blood pressure is an important parameter for the development of cardiovascular disease. By monitoring the blood pressure over 24 hours hypertension can be detected and treatment can be started. A new noninvasive long term blood pressure measurement method measures the blood pressure continuously on the wrist using ultrasound, a small balloon and a controller. The pressure is controlled with a voice coil actuator. The wrist blood pressure changes during motion. These movements are assessed with a water filled tube to calibrate the measurement to aortic blood pressure.
