Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death worldwide. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is widely recognized as a significant marker of cardiovascular status monitoring, and it is correlated with many cardiovascular risk factors, including age, blood pressure, pulse pressure, hypertrophy and heart diseases. Aortic PWV is a direct measurement of aortic stiffness and is considered to be the gold standard of arterial stiffness measurements. This paper describes the development of a wireless healthcare device includes graphic user interface (GUI) to monitor the severity of CVD by measuring and analysing the PWV values under MATLAB environment. The GUI build presents the data into a simple and friendly program. It consists of patient information part and data analysis which is able to detect the severity of hypertrophy and heart diseases. The proposed device may serve as new clinical computer-aided diagnostic tool to help the healthcare professionals to monitor the severity of CVD due to its properties of non-invasive, effort-independent, and continuous monitoring.
