WHAT IS VASOSCAN™?
VasoScan™ is an FDA cleared, simple, non-invasive device which provides an accurate, reproducible assessment of the Autonomic Nervous System, vascular elasticity and stiffness, as well as the coronary health of “at-risk” patients. VasoScan™ provides information on arterial wall stiffness and determines the biological age of arteries in five minutes, utilizing a finger probe to observe the changes in pressure, blood flow, and velocity throughout the pulse wave.
WHAT IS AN ARTERIAL PULSE WAVE?
VasoScan™ utilizes an infrared finger sensor, similar to pulse oximetry technology, to access, produce and display the arterial pulse waves. The pulse wave is a physiological phenomenon, observable and measurable in the arterial system during blood circulation. During one heart systole a certain blood volume is expelled. This propagates through the arteries due to the reciprocal transformation between kinetic energy of a segment of the expelled blood volume and the potential energy of a stretched segment of the resilient vascular wall. We can observe the changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and profile throughout the whole pulse wave. It is used for classification of the artery elasticity. The digitized pulse wave can then be used for various algorithms, including Heart Rate Variability analysis, useful for Autonomic Nervous System breakdown and analysis.
WHAT OTHER EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
VasoScan™ connects to a Windows laptop or desktop and is not printer specific.
IS VASOSCAN™ FDA CLEARED?
Yes. After three years of extensive review, the predicate device was approved June, 2011 and received the prestigious Class II Medical Device classification.
WHAT IS THE WARRANTY?
Due to advanced technology and intense white-room manufacture standards and production, we are able to include our exclusive one year limited Platinum Warranty, offered by no other medical manufacturer. In the rare occurrence of a malfunction, if we can’t remedy the situation, we will replace your unit at no charge.
HOW DO I ORDER VASOSCAN™?
You can order VasoScan™ directly from us or through a certified, authorized distributor.
