Abstract

In this study, an easy system for monitoring dynamic blood perfusion patterns and the pulse wave velocity (PWV) has been developed by processing video images of a human body to assess blood circulation for daily management of physical conditions or for detecting persons in poor physical condition in public places. The experiment suggested that this tool can be used to easily evaluate the PWV; however, the obtained value from the video image of the face was about 1/10 of the standard value calculated from thick vessels. This difference may be related to the difference between thick vessels and thin-branched arterioles.
