Background. The subject of the research is the blood pressure measurement devices. The research object is the process of registration, conversion and transmission of pulse wave signals. The aim of the work is to conduct a critical analysis of the known devices for blood pressure measuring, development and research of the author's virtual device in the Labview environment.
Matherials and methods. Improvement of the blood pressure measuring devices was carried out by introduction of new registration elements and pulse wave signal conversion. The article includes the examination of the developed virtual device on real bases of pulse wave signals.
Results. The research results include the analysis of the known solutions, blood pressure measuring devices, description of advantages and disadvantages thereof. The author developed a virtual circuit device for pulse wave registration and adduced the research thereof.
Conclusions. At its microprocessor implementation the developed device can be used both in private and public clinics to enhance the accuracy of blood pressure measutrements, especially in conditions of free physical activity.

Key words

arterial pressure, cuff, automatic carpal contour, Lab View.
