This paper shows the development of a novel sensor system for the application in the field of diagnostics of blood vessels. The aim of “Limb Plethysmography” is to check for narrowing or blockage of blood vessesls in the arms or legs. For this procedure it is necessary to measure the change of scope at the individual limb. During a development project, which was conducted by Fraunhofer IPA together with Gutmann Medizinelektronik e.k., an older sensor...
