ABPI measurement

MESI ABPI MD

MESI ABPI MD

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.

Microlife WatchBP Office ABI

Microlife WatchBP Office ABI

Dual cuff pressure monitor for the assessment of ankle brachial pressure index (ABPI) and the detection of atrial fibrillation (AF). During a rest period of at least 5 minutes, the blood pressure is measured in both arms simultaneously to determine which has the highest and to screen for AF. Next, the arm with the highest blood pressure and both legs are measured simultaneously. WatchBP software then facilitates an automated ABPI assessment within 4 minutes. Validated by the NHS Technology Adoption Centre. System comprises cuffs, mini USB port, rechargeable battery pack and an automated office blood pressure measurement device.
