The technology behind Arteriograph is based on basic physiological facts combined with complicated well engineered hardware and software which calculates essential cardiovascular features such as Arterial Stiffness, endothelial function and Central Blood Pressure. The device is applied non-invasively with minimal intervention. This characteristic makes Arteriograph unique among other devices available in the market.
Based on the same logic, Arteriograph 24 has been invented. This device is designed for 24h monitoring of mentioned parameters preferred in research, intensive care and some other areas.
Knowing the fact that circadian rhythm has a significant effect on parameters calculated by Arteriograph, recording the data throughout the day makes the evaluation even more extensive.
Moreover, TensioDay Plus as an Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring device facilitates not only accurate measurement of classical brachial blood pressure but also the essential central parameters such as Central Systolic Blood Pressure (SBPao).

The name “Arteriosclerosis” refers to a group of conditions with the effect of arterial stiffening. Flexibility is a key characteristic of healthy arteries, as they carry oxygen and nutrients via blood to and from the heart and lungs. As the artery gradually stiffens, the blood flow becomes increasingly obstructed, causing circulation abnormalities.
Elevated blood pressure values, high cholesterol levels, and diabetes are factors that increase the risk of Arteriosclerosis development.
With a confusingly similar name, “Atherosclerosis” is a specific type of Arteriosclerosis. Atherosclerosis denotes a condition of plaque forming in the arteries, leading to their narrowing, and consequently, slower blood flow.
The development of Atherosclerosis starts at a young age. Scientific literature points to the possibility of teenagers already being affected. The symptoms are usually absent or unrecognizable except for middle-aged or older patients. At a certain point the severity of the artery obstruction causes pain. The rupturing of the blockages is also a possibility, causing blood to clot inside an artery at the site of the rupture.
At an age of 40, being apparently healthy generally, the risk of developing a severe level of Atherosclerosis during the patient’s remaining lifetime is 50%. This percentage increases – among other things – with age. The following factors (in addition to the above-mentioned Arteriosclerosis-related factors) also contribute to the development of Atherosclerosis:
Most adults older than 60 suffer a certain level of Atherosclerosis, but the symptoms for most of them are still unnoticeable.
Complications of Atherosclerosis include:
How to diagnose Atherosclerosis noninvasively?
Arteriograph devices which are the best arterial function measurement, turned out to be ones very promising and excellent method to reveal and to detect the asymptomatic Atherosclerosis.
