An automated system that produces an accurate CVD risk score within minutes
The AngioDefender™ system measures the health of your endothelium— the single-cell-thick interior lining of all blood vessels in your body. Using a process called Flow-Mediated Dilation (%FMD), the device runs through a series of inflations and deflations to analyze the endothelium’s response to increased blood flow. Then, by combining the principles of blood pressure, pulse wave analysis, and a proprietary data analysis algorithm, the AngioDefender system produces your unique %FMD score.
