The Pulsesens system is able to quickly, cheaply and reliably screen every patient for a measure of arterial stiffness associated with hypertension, diabetes and risk of heart attack. Designed by INTELESENS. Direct peripheral artery detection of Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) is a useful index in assessing atherosclerosis which is now regarded as an early warning for cardiac dysfunction and diabetes. The method uses high speed transducers and so can provide an accurate measurement even over the short distance of the lower arm without the need for ECG measurement for synchronisation and hard to place sensors on the neck and leg.
