This activity, named vasomotion is presumed to be a control factor in tissue liquidian exchanges, this paper presents a non invasive method to detect this periodic micromovements in vivo. The device is made of an eddy-current sensor joined up to a PC prototyping board. A software has been developed to provide the functioning of the system. Several off line data processes like parametric and non parametric spectral analysis have been studied. We have realised a set of measurements on a test bench to determine
