The ANGIODEFENDER™system from Everist Health™ is the world's first integrated diagnostic device that combines sensor technology with a software algorithm to help physicians quickly and cost effectively assess the presence of early-stage cardiovascular disease (CVD). Our Vascular Age Calculator tool further engages and inspires patients to lead healthier lives before irreversible CVD damage occurs.
The AngioDefender™ system measures the health of your endothelium— the single-cell-thick interior lining of all blood vessels in your body. Using a process called Flow-Mediated Dilation (%FMD), the device runs through a series of inflations and deflations to analyze the endothelium’s response to increased blood flow. Then, by combining the principles of blood pressure, pulse wave analysis, and a proprietary data analysis algorithm, the AngioDefender system produces your unique %FMD score.
