The NeuroPulse utilizes pulsewave analysis technology called Photoplethysmography. The blood's pulsewave is followed from the time it leaves the heart and travels through the blood vessels down to the finger. The pulsewave is a snapshot into the cardiovascular system and evaluates arterial elasticity (arterial stiffness), which is related to atherosclerosis. Arterial stiffess is a major cardiovascular risk factor.
THE TEST ANALYZES:
• Heart Rate Variability and Mean Heart Rate
• Overall elasticity of large, small and peripheral arteries (arterial stiffness)
• Arteriosclerosis progress
• Blood circulation and remaining blood in the vessels after the systolic contraction of the heart
• Left ventricular ejection, contraction power
• Mental stress, physical stress, and resistance to stress
The Max Pulse is an FDA Approved Class II Medical Device
HEART RATE VARIABILITY (HRV)
Measures the degree of fluctuation in the length of intervals between heart beats. For healthy people, HRV shows a fluctuation in heart rates, while unhealthy people have a simple and consistent heart rate. HRV measures the adaptability of the cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system, which is composed of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). Your SNS plays the role of the accelerator, also known as flight or fight. Your PNS functions as the brake, also known as
rest and repair. A healthy person has a balanced autonomic nervous system.
