Blood pressure.


The simple way to increase the pressure of the fluid coming out of the arm is to raise the fluid container. To make it easy and adjustable, I designed new parts of the container that can be quickly added to the main bit to make it taller. The difference in blood pressure after adding two of them is significant and it adds the feel of urgency to the training. The problem is that it is still not big enough to be realistic. There is a possibility to add a squeeze bulb and pressure sprayer to make the blood flow highly pressurized and pulsating. It is going to be tested, but there is a big chance that these additional elements are not going to be implemented. The positive aspects of having pulsating, highly pressurized blood flow might not be big enough to justify the added cost and enormous mess after every single use.
