1. A pulse wave processing apparatus comprising:

  • an obtaining unit that obtains pulse wave signal data expressing a pulse wave of a subject and body movement signal data expressing body movements of the subject;

    a correlation coefficient calculating unit that calculates a correlation coefficient expressing a degree of correlation between the pulse wave signal data and the body movement signal data; and

    a pulse wave eliminating unit that eliminates one or more pieces of the pulse wave signal data in which the correlation coefficient is equal to or larger than a predetermined threshold value.
