Description

Uses a formulated calculation to measure ankle brachial pressure index (ABPI). Cuffs inflate and deflate simultaneously. There is no need for the patient to rest before the reading. The results, which are given within 1 minute of completing the test, give the ABPI of both legs in a simple format, along with the patient’s blood pressure and pulse. The results are displayed on a red background when peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is present and on a green background when it is not. The device is simple to use; free clinical support is available when required.
