Continuous monitoring of blood pressure in laboratory animals is necessary to understand the effect of treatments for cardiovascular related conditions, such as hypertension. Current methods to measure laboratory rat blood pressure require the animal to be constrained. Our proposed method is a small implantable device which fits around the carotid artery of the rat. Initial data from a mock rat artery setup, with equivalent artery pressure as found in the rat, show that the cuff design effectively detects the pressure change inside the mock artery.
