The Vicorder PWV is a portable non-invasive Laptop base arterial pulse wave velocity (PWV) measurement system that is fast and simple to use.
The Vicorder PWV system provides a quick and simple non-invasive method of obtaining the Pulse Wave Velocity for an arterial segment. Proximal and distal blood pressure cuffs are wrapped around the limb under consideration and inflated to 65 mmHg. The corresponding oscillometric signal from each cuff is digitally analysed to extract, in real time, the pulse transit time and the consequent Pulse Wave Velocity.
This new "hands off" technique allows sequential monitoring of PWV for varying events such as the response to flow enhanced reactive hyperaemia which can be induced using the distal cuff as intermittent occlusion cuff.
