Philip Aston part of a team awarded UKRI funding for physiological sensor research

A multidisciplinary team led by Prof Christian Heiss (FHMS) and including Prof Philip Aston, Dr David Birch (FEPS, Engineering), Prof Simon Skene (FHMS), and Dr Radu Sporea (FEPS, EE), have been awarded a £50k Healthy Ageing Catalyst Award, granted by UKRI, to facilitate a one-year research project on creating a low-cost prototype device for monitoring “pulse wave velocity“, a measure of arterial stiffness.
