Measuring Balance In High Altitude
Due to Hypoxia and hypobaric conditions at high altitudes, oxygen saturation decreases. Ataxia might occur and the ability to maintain balance in challenges.This study aimed to determine whether a new balance assessment test, the Zur Balance Scale (ZBS) is sensitive enough to detect changes in the balance at high altitudes.
Oximeter Behavior While Using a Tourniquet
This letter is a case report presenting the behavior of an approved for marketing oximeter device under tourniquet test, while comparing it with another approved for marketing device, the Cnoga TensorTip MTX (this letter is not a clinical trial report). Pulse oximeter is aimed for measuring pulse and arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) in the blood. The Tensor Tip MTX can measure over 15 bio parameters, among them are pulse and oxygen saturation.
New Method for Computing Optical Hemodynamic Blood Pressure
Objective: Hypertension is a major risk indicator for coronary heart diseases, renal failure, stroke and other various illnesses, and it is the primary global risk for mortality. Blood pressure measurements are essential for managing the risks resulting from hypertension. In this paper we will present a new device, the TensorTip MTX, which computes hemodynamic blood pressure noninvasively. Methods: This paper presents a technique that uses the color imaging resulting from a set of monochrome light source that traverse the tissue under consideration and is projected onto the color image sensor. A new extended solution of the Windkessel model is being displayed and provides additional insight on various functional resistances rather than a constant resistance.
