A method for estimating pulse wave velocity (PWV) using circulatory waveform signals derived from multiple photoplethysmograph (PPG) sensors is described. The method employs two wearable in-line PPG sensors placed at a known distance from one another at the ulnar and digital artery. A technique for calibrating the measured pulse wave velocity to arterial blood pressure using hydrostatic pressure variation is presented. Additionally, a framework is described for estimating local arterial dynamics using PPG waveforms and multi-channel blind system ID. Initial results implementing the method on data derived from a human subject at different arterial pressures is presented. Results show that the method is capable of measuring the changes in arterial PWV that result from fluctuations in mean arterial pressure
