Endothelial Function Testing with Flow Mediated Slowing (FMS)

A new parameter to understand cardiovascular risk

Testing of endothelial function is valuable in the clinical setting and research for risk stratification and therapy follow-up.

The most used method is Flow Mediated Dilation (FMD) is clinically challenging and requires significant technical and human skills.
Our novel approach simplifies Endothelial testing through Flow Mediated Slowing (FMS) and enables easy workflow integration requires minimal time, skill and costs.

Pulse Amplitude Ratio (PAR)

Most advanced test determining peripheral arterial vasomotor function

While FMD and FMS address endothelial function of predominantly bigger vasculature, function tests of smaller vessels and the vascular bed are also available which may be advantageous in a general population, e.g., in epidemiological studies and phenotyping.

Central Blood Pressure (cBP) and Pulse Wave Analysis (PWA)

Central blood pressure (CBP) is an essential parameter in cardiovascular research that provides critical insights into the functioning of the heart and blood vessels.
PWA is used to assess the effectiveness of interventions aimed at improving cardiovascular health, such as medication, lifestyle changes, or exercise.

By continuing to explore the potential applications of PWA, we can advance our understanding of cardiovascular disease and improve our ability to prevent and treat it.

Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV)

A measurement of arterial stiffness that is an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk

Measurements have been used in various types of research studies, such as observational studies, clinical trials, and epidemiological studies. Researchers use PWV because it is a non-invasive and reliable method to assess arterial stiffness.

It is a valuable tool for researchers studying cardiovascular health, as it provides important insights into the physiological changes that occur in the arterial system in response to various cardiovascular risk factors and interventions.
