The article presents researches concerning a system for a possible blood volume measurements applied in POLVAD prosthesis. The proposed solution is based on the Helmholtz resonance principle. The article shows the state of art in blood volume sensors for using in the POLVAD prosthesis and introduces a newly proposed solution. The construction of the sensor and the results of static tests are presented. The work is summarized with future development plans.
