Implementation and Analysis of Polymeric Pressure Sensor to Estimate Blood Pressure in the Brachial Artery

Automatic blood pressure monitors with inflatable cuff currently in use are inaccurate and produce inconsistent results. Even small movements during measurement can affect the measurement and lead to inaccurate diagnosis. This project aims to improve the accuracy of blood pressure monitors using advanced thin film sensors that can greatly improve the diagnosis. The project will enable a Canadian company to develop advanced technology that can put Canada as one of the hubs of blood pressure monitoring technology that only a few countries can boast of. The project will provide the intern with valuable experience developing advanced sensors with wide-scale applications for blood pressure monitoring.
