Maxpulse Blood Vessel Health Testing
Another fantastic tool that we have at the clinic is the The Max Pulse. This FDA approved device utilizes pulse wave analysis technology. The blood’s pulse wave is followed from the time it leaves the heart and travels through the blood vessels down to the finger.
The pulse wave is a snapshot into the cardiovascular system and evaluates arterial elasticity(arterial stiffness), which is related to atherosclerosis. Arterial stiffness is a major cardiovascular risk factor. It provides a realtime look at the current status of your blood vessels and cardiovascular risk.
This 5 minute Test Analyzes:
- Blood circulation and remaining blood in the vessels after the contraction of the heart
- Mental stress, physical stress, and resistance to stress of the nervous system
- Contraction power of the heart
- Heart Rate Variability and Mean Heart Rate
- Overall elasticity of large, small and peripheral arteries (arterial stiffness)
This easy to use noninvasive test also allows for a convenient monitoring of the treatment and reversal of atherosclerosis.
Who needs this test?
Anyone with a family history of any heart disease, stroke, or disease of the blood vessels, any history of diabetes personally or in the family as well.
