Evolution of the cardiac analyzer “Pulse” and the mobile medical devices

The basis of one of the areas in biomechanics, associated with the development of hemodynamics and fluid mechanics of the heart muscle, has been the use of new fiber-optic sensors, previously developed to solve some engineering problems. In particular, the original sensors of pressure and other physical quantities have been modified for the purpose of measuring cardiac mechanical signals, namely tones, noises and other vibration signals of the heart and pulse pressure waves in the circulatory system. The main idea of introducing such sensors into medicine is formulated as an attempt to enable a general practitioner or a cardiologist, as well as any expert, to quickly collect the necessary data both on the patient’s state of the cardiovascular system and the condition of the entire organism in general. In parallel with designing the sensors, secondary equipment and signal processing algorithms have been developed.
