Mea­su­re­ment Tech­no­lo­gy with Uni­ver­sal Bene­fits — Win-win for doc­tors and patients

More fle­xi­bi­li­ty for dia­gno­sis and therapy

.

VASCASSIST opens up opti­ons for the pre­ven­ti­on and cure of car­dio­vascu­lar dise­a­ses that medi­cal pro­fes­sio­nals and pati­ents could pre­vious­ly only dream of.

Mea­su­re­ment tech­no­lo­gy with uni­ver­sal benefits

A win-win for doc­tors and patients

Vascu­lar mea­su­re­ment with VASCASSIST has many advan­ta­ges — for phy­si­ci­ans and pati­ents ali­ke. With the help of Model-based Pul­se Wave Ana­ly­sis (mbPWA), drawing on pati­ent data deter­mi­ned indi­vi­du­al­ly in the arte­ri­al tree, phy­si­ci­ans bene­fit from a revo­lu­tio­na­ry impro­ve­ment in their pre­vious diagnostic and the­ra­peu­tic opti­ons. Beco­me a vascu­lar spe­cia­list in just a few steps!

For pati­ents, using VASCASSIST means that they can be infor­med at an ama­zin­gly ear­ly sta­ge about pos­si­ble dise­a­ses of the heart and arte­ries as part of a pre­ven­ti­ve car­dio­vascu­lar mea­su­re­ment. In addi­ti­on, becau­se the mea­su­red values are often not yet cli­ni­cal­ly rele­vant at an ear­ly sta­ge, pati­ents can often mini­mi­ze or eli­mi­na­te dise­a­se risks in the first place.

For doc­tors

Com­pre­hen­si­ve dia­gnostics — tar­ge­ted manage­ment of pre­ven­ti­on and therapy

 

Model-based Pul­se Wave ana­ly­sis brings with it a signi­fi­cant faci­li­ta­ti­on of the ent­i­re dai­ly medi­cal dia­gno­sis and tre­at­ment routine.

  • Dia­gno­sis befo­re mani­fes­ta­ti­on and cli­ni­cal rele­van­ce of patho­lo­gi­cal car­dio­vascu­lar changes
  • Repeated con­trol mea­su­re­ments make inter­ven­ti­on effects and tre­at­ment suc­ces­ses easier for pati­ents to detect than ever before
  • Gra­phic visua­liz­a­ti­on of pul­se cur­ves and deter­mi­ned arte­ri­al age faci­li­ta­te dia­gnostic clarification
  • Poten­ti­al for hig­her com­pli­an­ce and pati­ent satis­fac­tion­Op­ti­mi­zing day-to-day pati­ent care for spe­cia­lists and gene­ral practitioners
  • Revo­lu­ti­on of the ever­y­day use of cen­tral blood pres­su­re mea­su­re­ment in a wide varie­ty of are­as, such as rese­arch (e.g., indi­vi­du­al­ly tailo­red, more effec­ti­ve therapies)

Pre­cisi­on and ever­y­day usability

The novel mea­su­re­ment metho­do­lo­gy based on arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence enab­les the deter­mi­na­ti­on of cen­tral and peri­pheral blood pres­su­re values with unpre­ce­den­ted pre­cisi­on. By over­co­m­ing com­mon hurd­les, Model-based Pul­se Wave Ana­ly­sis (mbPWA) is supe­ri­or to con­ven­tio­nal mea­su­re­ment methods.

For pati­ents

Time­ly dia­gno­sis — bet­ter prognosis

Thanks to ear­ly infor­ma­ti­on about their car­dio­vascu­lar sta­tus and indi­vi­du­al risk pro­fi­le, pati­ents can proac­tively con­tri­bu­te to stay­ing healt­hy and thus con­trol the cour­se of a dise­a­se to a lar­ge extent auto­no­mous­ly. Once the results are avail­ab­le, it is ide­al­ly suf­fi­ci­ent to inte­gra­te indi­vi­du­al­ly tailo­red medi­cal recom­men­da­ti­ons for health-pro­mo­ting life­style adjus­t­ments into ever­y­day diet and exer­cise and fol­low through consistently.

Car­dio­vascu­lar dise­a­ses are detec­ted by VASCASSIST at such an ear­ly sta­ge that they are still lar­ge­ly asym­pto­ma­tic and rever­si­ble. Ear­ly cer­tain­ty about a pos­si­ble risk of myo­car­di­al infarc­tion or stro­ke gives pati­ents room for maneu­vering to favor­ab­ly influ­ence abnor­ma­li­ties of their respec­ti­ve vascu­lar sys­tems pure­ly through their initiative.

If tre­at­ment is necessa­ry, time­ly dia­gno­sis has a tan­gi­ble impact on future qua­li­ty of life and the fur­ther cour­se of the dise­a­se. For examp­le, sup­po­se con­s­tric­tions in the arm and leg arte­ries are detec­ted during scree­ning for peri­pheral arte­ri­al occlu­si­ve dise­a­se (PAVD). Pati­ents can achie­ve a gre­at deal through their initia­ti­ve (pri­ma­ri­ly tar­ge­ted car­dio­vascu­lar trai­ning). On the other hand, sup­po­se the­re are alrea­dy sym­ptoms in the affec­ted extre­mi­ties (occur­ring main­ly in the legs). In that case, the worst can be pre­ven­ted by immedia­te inter­ven­ti­ons — the same app­lies to the chan­ce of aver­ting the dan­ger of impen­ding (cardio)vascular occlu­si­on or, at the worst, amputation.
