Dr. Meghan S. Hegarty-Craver
My research involves developing wearable, wireless sensors for continuously monitoring the health of the peripheral vascular system so that physicians can make more informed decisions with regard to compression therapy. In addition to sensing technology, I have also worked extensively to better characterize the properties of the compression garments.
