  • Patent number: 11432728
    Abstract: This blood pressure/pulse wave measurement device obtains a pulse wave velocity (baPWV) that is an index representing the arterial stiffness of a subject. A lower limb/upper limb blood pressure ratio (ABI) that is an index representing the clogging of the blood vessels of a subject is obtained. When the lower limb/upper limb blood pressure ratio (ABI) of the subject surpasses a preset first threshold value, a point (Px) representing the pulse wave velocity (baPWV) is displayed on a one-dimensional graph (46). When the lower limb/upper limb blood pressure ratio (ABI) of the subject is equal to or less than the preset first threshold value, a point representing the lower limb/upper limb blood pressure ratio (ABI) is displayed on the one-dimensional graph (46) instead of the point representing the pulse wave velocity (baPWV).
