The early diagnosis of peripheral artery disease (PAD) leads to better patient outcomes, and lower healthcare costs
Dopplers are very operator-dependent as they require coupling gel, need to be held at a 45-degree angle, and need to be placed directly over the vessel which can sometimes be hard to find.
PADnet utilizes automated pressure cuffs so staff can accurately and consistently perform the test.
PADnet is much more than an ABI machine. In addition to being able to get an ankle brachial index test, you can also get a TBI, or toe brachial index.
The peripheral artery disease (PAD) test results can be sent securely to a specialist for remote interpretation, enabling the coordination of care, to help reduce costs and optimize patient outcomes.
Peripheral vascular disease in the legs typically manifests in a symptom called claudication, or pain while walking. Patients complaining of pain while walking may be experiencing the classic symptom of PAD, and if left untreated, may progress to more serious complications.
However, PADnet features an easy-to-perform test that can be performed by a medical assistant in 7 minutes, supporting screening of patients presenting with atypical symptoms, or who may be in an at-risk population, such as smokers or diabetics over the age of 50.
