Max Pulse HRV

Max Pulse is a non-invasive, Class II medical device that uses a pulse oximeter on the patient fingertip to detect and interpret the arterial pulse wave. This information is interpreted using a proprietary algorithm which generates an easy-to-interpret result sheets showing the patient’s arterial flexibility and the state of the patient autonomic nervous system. This process of examining the arterial pulse wave is called “pulse wave analysis”.

The Max Pulse Performs a 3-Minute Test
To Detect Arterial Hardening and Stress Levels

The Max Pulse is a great resource for any type of Healthcare Practitioner or health-related business or profession because it provides a simple and non-invasive means of determining the health of the cardiovascular system. Max Pulse testing will give you a detailed analysis of arterial health, along with a separate report containing a detailed analysis of the autonomic nervous system and stress/fatigue levels.

How It Works

The Max Pulse test is non-invasive and uses a photoelectric clip on the fingertipBy measuring the blood at the fingertip, the Max Pulse can graph the heart beat as it moves through systolic and diastolic. When a person’s arteries are flexible, the pressure at the finger tip has specific deviations as the arteries flex. If the a person’s arteries are very stiff, the graph becomes very tight and regular. The machine performs an analysis of the arterial pulse wave by using a very sophisticated algorithm to track variations in the graph that are not visible to the naked eye and then interprets those results against a large body of research. The result is an assessment of arterial hardening that is very accurate.

Arterial Health Score: The 1-7 scoring system gives very accurate assessment of arterial hardening.  The final report can also indicate instances where the patient has early congestive heart failure or heart weakening. This test allows you can detect arterial hardening or heart weakening long before the patient becomes symptomatic. This is crucial in diabetic patients and for patients with high blood pressure or elevated lipids.

Autonomic Balance Test: The machine also does a very accurate heart rate variability test and prints an autonomic nervous system analysis, showing if the person is overstressed and the sympathetic nervous system is dominant, or in some cases showing that the person is fatigued or the sympathetic is suppressed and the parasympathetic system is dominant. It also shows how well the patient is dealing with their stress levels and assigns a stress score.
