Peripheral Vascular Testing

VICORDER® | Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral Vascular Disease  Overview The circulatory system consists of 2 types of blood vessels: arteries and veins. These are tubular structures that carry the blood throughout the body. Arteries carry oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood from the heart to the organs and cells. Veins carry oxygen-depleted blood and wastes through the kidneys, liver, and lungs, where wastes are filtered out and removed from the body. The venous blood is then again filled with oxygen in the lungs and returned back to the heart. The 2 are interconnected by small weblike vessels called capillaries. Peripheral...

Ankle Brachial Index | ABI

The ankle-brachial index test is a quick, noninvasive way to check your risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD). Peripheral artery disease is a condition in which the arteries in your legs or arms are narrowed or blocked. People with peripheral artery disease are at a high risk of heart attack, stroke, poor circulation and leg pain. The ankle-brachial index test compares your blood pressure measured at your ankle with your blood pressure measured at your arm. A low ankle-brachial index number can indicate narrowing or blockage of the arteries in your legs, leading to circulatory problems, heart...

Vicorder Pulse Wave Velocity Research

Aortic stiffness, an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk and all-cause mortality, can be estimated non-invasively by measuring carotid to femoral (aortic) pulse wave velocity (aPWV). The Vicorder device has been developed to measure aPWV with little operator training in a non-intrusive manner. The aim of this study was to assess the repeatability of aPWV measured with the Vicorder device On the basis of the findings of this study, we suggest a standard method of distance calculation for the Vicorder path length that is representative of anatomical arterial path length, consistent with...
