  • narrow blood pressure cuff needed

    Dear Biomch-Lers

    I'm working on a PhD project at the Faculty of Human Movement Science at the
    Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. I am doing measurements with Near Infra Red
    Spectroscopy in order to study muscle tissue oxygenation. During these
    experiments an arterial occlusion has to be applied to the arm of the
    subject. Normally this is done by means of a bloodpressure cuff. However I'm
    interrested in the muscles of the upper arm, and therefore a normal blood
    pressure cuff is useless since it is too wide and covers the upper arm
    muscles. Therefore I'm looking for a narrow cuff with a width of maximal 5
    cm, but untill now with no result. Therefore my question is whether anyone
    does know whether such cuffs exist and if so, where I could get them?

    Thank you in advance

    Marit Praagman
