2 in 1: ABI and BP measurement
This is not just a medical device for ABI; this is a medical device for the simple, objective and accurate measurement of ABI and blood pressure. The expertly developed ABPI MD has two measurement modes:
- Stand-alone measurement of brachial blood pressure and heart rate.
- Simultaneous measurement of the left ABI, the right ABI, blood pressure and heart rate.
Therefore, ABPI MD can be used for measuring brachial blood pressure on all patients visiting the general practitioner. It is also used as a screening tool for patients with non-modifiable and modifiable risk factors for the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases.
Colour coded cuffs simplify the use of the device. The different colours indicate where to place each cuff. The red cuff should be positioned on the upper arm, green on the right and yellow on the left ankle. Each cuff is clearly labelled and includes a diagram to ensure correct placement, so no training is needed as comprehensive guidelines are provided.
Long lasting battery for maximum portability
During the measurement, patient needs to be in the supine position. Consequently, ABPI MD´s place is right next to the examination bed, where electricity point is not always at convenient location.
Portability of the device has been enhanced with a long lasting battery, for 50 measurements, which enables the device to be used wherever it is needed.
To enhance the functionality of the ABPI MD, a stand with a magnetic base has been designed to hold both the device and the cuffs. This portable, wheeled stand enables the medical device to be used next to the examination table.
A stand is an important accessory for ABPI MD as it provides a flat and stable surface, without which the device is unable to perform accurate measurements. Not all examination rooms have a suitable table at the right place, so the stand makes it possible to use it wherever it is required.
