    Dear All,

    I have an assignment about make an improvement of the device for measuring human heartbeat which using pulse oxymeter to identify human blood pressure. Now I'm thinking about using another method by measuring arterial Pulse Transit Time (PTT) and Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV). So instead of using one single photodiode and IR light I'm gonna use two of each of them for measuring the differences at two measurement point at arm.

    Anyone have some experience with this or maybe some advices related with the method that I'm gonna use?
