This thesis presents an improved oscillotonometric system for the measurement of human blood pressure. The study included:
1. The design of a hydraulic occlusive cuff,
2. The investigation of the wave forms taken from the blood pressure measurements, and
3. The design of a mechanism for the simulation of human blood pressure pulse.
In this study, an experimental system consisting of a rigid shell occlusive cuff, a constant volume displacement pump, a transducer, and a chart recorder was designed and used for data collection.
