Participated in study, links heart disease with bipolar disorder. Used a machine. What is it called?

Hi today I participated in a study that links heart disease with bipolar disorder. They used a machine on me that I think monitors blood markers or vessels or something along those lines by putting my index fingers in these cuffs for 7 minutes and then adding pressure with a cuff to my left arm for another 3 minutes. You wouldn't know what this machine is called, would you?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

In most of the trials, the doctor or the patient are not allowed to know many things - to avoid influencing the outcome - "Double Blind" studies...
It does not seem reasonable or realistic to suggest some suitable solutions - - with the incomplete information...
Such a 'machine' usually records heart rate / blood pressure / Oxygen saturation / rarely other parameters...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
