Wearable Ultrasound Technology for Cardiovascular Health Monitoring

The proposed research concerns the construction of a computer simulation environment for the artery phantom with cardiac cycles and ultrasound signals obtained using our novel wearable ultrasound sensor (WUS) technology when monitoring the cardiovascular health. It is difficult to assess health indicators of the artery of a living subject experimentally for comparison with those estimated using our WUS and associated software. Computer simulation offers the ability to design controlled experiments with all the health indicators and conditions known so that the performance of our estimation can be readily evaluated. This is valuable for verifying the estimation obtained by the technology we have designed and can be used to investigate limitations and areas that require further research.
