Principle and Definition

MS-3000 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 as health risk factors that trigger progression of certain life-threatening diseases. MS-3000 provides an opportunity to assess such risk factors.

ASI assessment with MS-3000 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 MS-3000 is the original and peerless device.

MS-3000 is the product of more than two decades of intensive research. Its method of measuring can be easily applied in almost all medical fields. MS-3000 provides an opportunity to manage the effect of health enhancement strategy.

How to Measure

MS-3000 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

MS-3000 is very user-friendly and intuitively operable for both health professionals and related care providers. Due to its simple hardware and standard computer requirements, MS-3000 can be smoothly incorporated into virtually any of medical- and health-related facilities such as clinics, laboratories, health clubs and wellness centers.

MS-3000 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. MS-3000 helps in reducing the incidence of profession- or semi-professional work related diseases in affiliated staffs throughout the various departments of treatment.
