Assessment using CardioVision

Principle and Definition

CardioVision is a computer-based non-invasive system with the ability to determine Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) for assessment of lower extremity stenosis and Arterial Stiffness Index (ASI) for assessment of the degree of arterial stiffness using the oscillometric method.

Excessive stress and lack of exercise are known health risk factors that trigger progression of certain life-threatening diseases. CardioVision provides an opportunity to assess such risk factors.

ASI assessment with CardioVision is based on measurable physiological phenomena observed from the elasticity and hardness of the artery using pressure and volumetric changes. The principle of ASI measurement was established following a proposal by Professor Hideaki Shimazu at Kyorin University, and CardioVision is the original and peerless device.

CardioVision is the product of more than two decades of intensive research. Its method of measuring can be easily applied in almost all medical fields. CardioVision provides an opportunity to manage the effect of health enhancement strategy.

How to Measure

CardioVision measures blood pressure and pulse wave using cuffs wrapped around the extremities in the supine position and calculate ABI and ASI. The measurement will be completed in approximately 9 minutes. The results will be recorded in the Software, and ABI and ASI will be calculated.

How to Use

CardioVision is very user-friendly and intuitively operable for both health professionals and related care providers. Due to its simple hardware and standard computer requirements, CardioVision can be smoothly incorporated into virtually any of medical- and health-related facilities such as clinics, laboratories, health clubs and wellness centers.

CardioVision can also be used easily in regular health checkups. Assessment results may be used in regular health maintenance, or monitoring general health conditions or effects of various therapies to achieve intended health conditions. CardioVision helps in reducing the incidence of profession- or semi-professional work related diseases in affiliated staffs throughout the various departments of treatment.
