Bottom Line: In traditional Iranian medicine (TIM), physician may detect radial pulse by holding four fingers on the patient's wrist.By this novel system, the developed noninvasive diagnostic method and database based on the TIM are way forward to apply traditional medicine and diagnose patients with present technology.The accuracy for period measuring is 76% and systolic peak is 72%.

ABSTRACT
Arterial pulse measurement is one of the most important methods for evaluation of healthy conditions. In traditional Iranian medicine (TIM), physician may detect radial pulse by holding four fingers on the patient's wrist. By using this method, under standard condition, the detected pulses are subjective and erroneous, in case of weak and/or abnormal pulses, the ambiguity of diagnosis may rise. In this paper, we present an equipment which is designed and implemented for automation of traditional pulse detection method. By this novel system, the developed noninvasive diagnostic method and database based on the TIM are way forward to apply traditional medicine and diagnose patients with present technology. The accuracy for period measuring is 76% and systolic peak is 72%.

Figure 3: Mechanical part of device

Mentions: A stepper motor is embedded to control the position of the robot's finger on the subject's wrist. Every step resolution should be as small as appropriate pressure accuracy. Figure 3 shows this mechanism. This part is an automatic version of physician's control on his fingers in traditional medicine. The physician would adjust his finger pressure proportional to subject's sex, age, etc. The motor can move up or down the finger, in every step.
