Figure 8: (a) brachial augmentation index (AIx) in %, describing the influence of the reflected pulse wave on systolic pressure (in percent of pulse pressure) of the 14 healthy volunteers during measurement phases a–d (see Figure 3). (b) PWVao (aortic pulse wave velocity in m/s) in the same subjects. For further explanation of the box plots, see Figure 4.
