For the last three years we have been interested in evaluating direct body ballistocardiography as an aid in office and clinic cardiology. The literature on ballistocardiography now includes three monographs and close to 400 articles. Current interest in this field is due in great measure to the studies of Dr. Isaac Starr, of Philadelphia, and the interested reader is referred to his latest paper1 and to the monographs2-4 for further study and bibliography.
