Raising public awareness & use of project’s result

We performed an experimental evaluation of sphygmomanometer accuracy and repeatability using the aOSG.

This consisted of testing 11 sphygmomanometers each tested with the same set of 85 real-life oscillometric signals. This gave us a unique opportunity to compare performance of the devices not only in terms of average error and standard deviation, but also by comparing the performance at each oscillometric signal. 

The sphygmomanometer evaluation was done for Czech newspaper Mladá Fronta DNES, who published an article with the results were published at the end of June.
