Abstract—This study was to Design a setup used to measure the flow using piezoelectric sensor for medical purposes using the property of piezoelectricity. The piezoelectric disc used is shown below. Two/ four piezoelectric discs were placed in line, inclined or parallel on a flexi tube (ACLYRIC)and the outputs observed for various waveforms and levels of water to measure the direction of Fluid

Index Terms—Blood flow rate, nano-piezoelectric, Medical purpose
