Introduction


Qmedic Pro is a non-invasive, fully automated computer-based system that provides Heart Rate Variability (HRV), blood pressure analysis and Pulsewave Velocity analysis for quantitative assessment of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS).Overstress and immobilization are conventional health risk factors, triggering the development of life threatening specific diseases. Qmedic Pro offers the possibility of Cumulative Physical and Mental Stress Assessment.Qmedic Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) analysis is based on physiological phenomenon, observable and measurable in the arterial elasticity and stiffness during blood circulation.Qmedic Pro is the result of more than three decades of very profound scientific research. Testing can be performed easily in almost all medical branches. Qmedic Pro offers the possibility to manage the effect of any health promoting strategy.

Product Overview


Qmedic Pro is a non-invasive, fully automated computer-based system that provides Heart Rate Variability (HRV), blood pressure analysis and Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) analysis for quantitative assessment of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS).The software and analyses are intuitive, easy-to-use and designed for success in the hands of both medical professionals and non-medical practitioners. Simple hardware and standard computer requirements ensure Qmedic Pro transitions seamlessly into virtually every health practice including clinics, laboratories, sports clubs and wellness centers.Qmedic Pro products are easily applicable to the course of mass and periodical medical check-ups. Assessments can also be used for regular health control and for monitoring the effects of different treatment methods directed toward the general and specific health condition. Consequently, Qmedic Pro is useful for the prevention of high-professional and paraprofessional morbidity rates in different categories of workers and employees.Qmedic Pro presents a quick and reliable assessment of basic health risk factors, such as the chronic vegetative misbalance, pathological disorders of the heartbeat activity, the levels of accumulated stress, and the decreased level of physical training.Qmedic Pro uses cutting edge technology to enable precise measurements of parasympathetic and sympathetic activities in order to assess the autonomic balance in the body (evaluation of the autonomic nervous system's regulatory function).The Qmedic system is used for objective evaluation and validation of various treatments, for research and documentation, and for evaluation of Autonomic Activity before and after a patient is affected by medication, physical treatment, stress, beta-blockers, or any other factor. The point of intersection is interpreted as the point of Autonomic Balance.This method of assessment is applicable to many fields of clinical practice such as internal medicine, family practice, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, and psychotherapy. Heart Rate Variability and blood pressure analysis by Qmedic serves as the basis for evaluating the patient's ANS state before and after treatment, which can provide an accurate and reproducible assessment of treatment effectiveness. The system is used to objectively confirm or exclude a Cardiovascular Autonomic Neuropathy (CAN), a Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy (DAN) and other dysautonomia problems.Qmedic Pro offers possibility of Accumulative Physical and Mental Stress Assessment. Overstress and immobilization are conventional health risk factors, triggering the development of life threatening specific diseases.Qmedic Pro pulse wave is based on physiological phenomenon, observable and measurable in the arterial system during blood circulation. During one heart systole a certain blood volume is expelled. This propagates through the arteries due to the reciprocal transformation between kinetic energy of a segment of the expelled blood volume and the potential energy of a stretched segment of the resilient vascular wall. With Qmedic, observations to changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and profile throughout the whole pulse wave can be made for the clear classification of arterial elasticity.

Features


* (Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Activity/Balance of the autonomic nervous system)
Autonomic Balance Analysis is based on respiration frequency analysis and a comparison analysis between resting, deep breathing, valsalva and standing* (Arterial Reflection, Stiffness, Augmentation, Arterial Ejection Elasticity, Arterial Dicrotic Dilation, Arterial Dicrotic Elasticity)
Pulse wave velocity is measurable in the arterial system during blood circulation and is an indicator of cardiovascular health, disease progression, and treatment status.* , Physical stress, Mental Stress
Presents an assessment of the cumulative physical and mental stress which are the strongest indicators of potential for serious illness development.* , Training(Fitness) Level, Cardiac & Vascular Coefficients
Fitness assessment measures the response of the heart-vascular reaction during orthostatic stress (i.e. moving from a seated to a standing position).*
ECG is the most important test for interpretation of cardiac rhythm, conduction system abnormalities, and for the detection of extrasystoles.*
A training system designed to improve health and reduce the impact of stress on the human body through special respiration techniques.* (Combination analysis of all tests)
Overall Health Level is a compilation of several assessments including values obtained from the following tests: Pulse Wave, ECG, Autonomic Nervous System, Stress, Fitness and Correlation analysis*
Real time assessments and analyses of HRV, momentary stress and ANS which enables instant monitoring of the body's response to stimuli such as medications or treatments. * Neurovegetative Analysis with custom measurement marks
