Project description
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dangerous condition which can lead to rupture. It is currently diagnosed by expensive imaging studies. Our aim is to develop a novel cost-effective screening and follow-up method for AAA that is based on analyzing peripheral arterial pulse waves. The project will develop novel printed and soft sensors and signal processing methods and validates the methods in clinical trials.
