Demo video of Carotid, Femoral (through jeans) and Brachial tonometry
PulsePen is a non-invasive device able to evaluate:
Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV): the gold standard method for assessing arterial distensibility
Central Blood Pressure: directly derived by carotid pulse waveform
Pulse Wave Analysis (PWA): including separation analysis of forward
and backward waves
Central blood pressure is measured by PulsePen tonometer directly on the carotid artery, without use of ambiguous "transfer function" from peripheral
The PulsePen probe's plunger
makes easy the signal capture of the pressure waves because of its dimension and shape. It's very robust and typical shocks don't damage it.
The system is contained in a pocket size bag, it's lightweight and very easily transportable. The connection of tonometer and Ecg with the computer
is totally wireless. The absence of connection cables allows for a very comfortable use.
The radio transmission is based on a proprietary protocol
that was specifically developed in order to obtain a perfect time synchronization between units. The use of the device is not difficult and
one Usb pen is inserted in the package with all the involved software,
included a video tutorial about the method that explains the correct usage and a quick reference guide.
The PulsePen is available in two models that differ only for the number of tonometric probes, namely
one for the WPP001-ET and two for the WPP001-ETT. The ET model uses Ecg as reference for determining the pressure waves transit time in order to
measure pulse wave velocity. The ETT model allows for the same
measurements of the first one adding the possibility to measure PWV also in a single step with two probes, simultaneously, without use of Ecg.

Long term recordings: it's possible to produce long term recordings (up to 24h) saving raw data
in ASCII format for post analysis performed by the User.
Guarantee period is two years and in case of problems Customers have to follow a very simple procedure
contacting DiaTecne for the analysis of the issue and following our
instructions in order to send us the apparatus using an express courier (UPS, DHL, FedEx, SDA, ...) in case
it's not possible to solve it. In few days the PulsePen will be shipped back perfectly working.
