Summary

Summary: 
A UK company has developed a pulse reader and app that calculates your 'heart age' based on aortic stiffness, an indicator of developing (and reversible) illnesses. The product is not a medical device, but is a fingertip pulse reader that detects and records arterial pulsations in the user's finger. They are seeking distributors of healthcare devices to take the product to new markets via distribution agreement.

Description

Description: 

Aortic stiffness is a common sign of aging and cardiovascular problems. An increasing focus on preventative healthcare has led to a new interest in seeking a noninvasive measure of aortic stiffness, as well as determining and proving its presence as an indicator of chronic illnesses.

The UK company has developed a product that is wireless and uses bluetooth to connect to a smartphone or tablet. Each test takes 30 seconds and provides immediate results.

The product is a fingertip pulse reader that detects and records arterial pulsations in the user's finger. The product transmits these recordings to an app on an iOS/Android device and translates them into a pulse wave for display and analysis. The device also measures real-time heart rate and blood oxygen saturation.

The device measures Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity to determine Internal Age. Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity (AoPWV) is the gold standard of Aortic Stiffness measurement. Aortic Stiffness has been proven in a wealth of scientific literature to be a marker of risk of developing heart disease, dementia, and risk of death from all causes, but it's reversible with positive lifestyle choices such as increased movement, improved diet, and lowered stress.

The UK company is seeking companies in healthcare to take the product to new markets via distribution agreement.
