  • Publication number: 20200214577
    Abstract: A cuff-type monitoring device, for collecting cardiovascular data relating to an individual user, comprising a control unit housing and a cuff assembly coupled or attached to the control unit housing, the cuff assembly comprising an inner layer, an inflatable bladder, a cuff holder, forming an structural resilient armature of the cuff assembly, an intermediate sheet, an outer band, wherein the cuff assembly is configured, in use, to surround a upper limb of the individual, with the inner layer in contact with the upper limb, wherein control unit housing comprises at least a pump configured to inflate the inflatable bladder, wherein the intermediate sheet is made in an inextensible, i.e. non-stretchable, fabric and there is provided a border joint or seam at least on three sides on a peripheral border of the inflatable bladder, the border joint joining and securing together the inner layer, the inflatable bladder, the intermediate sheet, and the an outer band.

  • Publication number: 20190387987
    Abstract: A method to collect cardiovascular data relating to an individual user (U), in a system comprising an acoustic sensor (4) configured to be coupled to the chest of the user, an arm band (2) having an inflatable bladder (53) configured to be placed around at a predefined position around a upper limb of the user, for example the left arm (BG), a pneumatic unit with at least a pump (7) and a pressure sensor (61), configured to inflate and deflate the inflatable bladder, an arterial blood path (P) being defined from the heart to the left arm (BG) of the user,the method comprising a set of steps named PTT procedure: /A1/-acquiring acoustic signals at the acoustic sensor, /A2/-acquiring pressure signals at the pressure sensor, representative of pressure occurring at the brachial artery, /S0/-inflate the bladder at a predetermined pressure (PT1) /S1/-determining aortic valve closing instant T1(k) from acoustic signals, /S2/-determining subsequently, from pressure signals, a characteristic point (M2) of the pressure s
