The device used for our test has been developed by a company who have supplied medical equipment around the world since 1975. This machine, along with specialised computer software, initially determines and then progressively keeps track of a client’s biological age and other health indicators.
How Does It Work?
Our device measures changes in blood volume caused by the pulse wave. By detecting the pulse wave pattern and calculating the volume of blood being delivered, along with arterial softness, an indication of the condition of a client’s arteries and the amount of oxygen being delivered to the skin and other vital organs can be ascertained. Results are then analysed by specialist computer software and the client’s biological age is calculated. Our therapist will then make the appropriate recommendations and provide a full report.
When an artery of normal stiffness is measured, the pulse wave generated during deflation of the cuff first appears when cuff pressure approaches systolic blood pressure. The pulse wave then rises and after reaching its highest point, decreases gradually. The softness of the artery and the volume of blood delivered by one cardiac output determine the size of the pulse wave. The device can detect when the disposition of the artery being measured differs from that of a normal artery. This is because arterial hardening begins when the normally soft side of the artery wall suffers a breach. The area thickens with collagen and consequently, a change occurs in the mechanical laws of the arterial walls.
