The Max Pulse is a non-invasive, FDA Cleared, Class II medical device that uses a pulse oximeter on the patient fingertip to detect and interpret the arterial pulse wave. This information is interpreted using a proprietary algorithm which generates an easy-to-interpret result sheets showing the patients arterial flexibility and the state of the patient autonomic nervous system.
Video Introduction to the Max Pulse
The Max Pulse Provides A 3 Minute Test
To Detect Arterial Hardening and Stress Levels
How It Works: The Max Pulse test is non-invasive and uses a photoelectric clip on the fingertip. By measuring the blood at the finger tip, the Max Pulse can graph the heart beat as it moves through systolic and diastolic. When a persons arterials are flexible, the pressure at the finger tip has specific deviations as the arteries flex. If the a persons arteries are very stiff, the graph becomes very tight and regular. The machine uses a very sophisticated algorithm to track variations in the graph that are not visible to the naked eye and then interprets those results against a large body of research. The result is an assessment of arterial hardening that is very accurate.
Arterial Health Score: The 1-7 scoring system gives very accurate assessment of arterial hardening. The final report can also indicate instances where the patient has early congestive heart failure or heart weakening. This test allows you can detect arterial hardening or heart weakening long before the patient becomes symptomatic. This is crucial in diabetic patients and for patients with high blood pressure or elevated lipids.
Autonomic Balance Test: The machine also does a very accurate heart rate variability test and prints an autonomic nervous system analysis, showing if the person is overstressed and the sympathetic nervous system is dominant, or in some cases showing that the person is fatigued or the sympathetic is suppressed and the parasympathetic system is dominant. It also shows how well the patient is dealing with their stress levels and assigns a stress score.
“The Max Pulse device offers a simple, quick, and highly informative test for endothelial function as well as vessel integrity. This allows the clinician to identify patients at risk for cardiovascular disease allowing for appropriate counseling regarding lifestyle, diet, and supplemental changes as well as referral to a cardiologist if indicated. Also, patients appear more motivated to become proactive when discussing these test results.” – Dr Birken, MD FACOG Houston Texas

Max Pulse Science
Photoplethysmography has been used for a long time. A simple pulse oximeter will measure the arterial pulse wave and the deviations between young healthy arteries and very advanced CVD is actually visible righ there on the pulse ox. But that is not enough for clinically use. What makes the Max Pulse different is the very complex analysis that our proprietary algorithm performs, reformatting the arterial pulse wave graph and pulling very detailed information. Multiple peer-reviewed studies have shown this technique to be effective when compared to more traditional and time-consuming methods of detecting cardiovascular disorders. Our machine takes the arterial pulse wave and interprets it using something called the Accelerated Photoplethysmography (APG) which allows us to pull very precise information from the waveform. Our website has scientific studies (see link below). Contact us and we can email you a PDF that includes a summary of the important points in these studies and the names of the studies.
What Comes With the Max Pulse
It ships with the Max Pulse, finger probe, full size laptop, peripherals, software and a quickstart booklet that covers every aspect of the device and how to use it. Everything needed to perform the testing is included in the box. We also will do an in-person on-line training with you when you get your device to walk through setting it up and using it. There are no extra costs associated with using the Max Pulse, everything you need is provided.

The Arterial Stiffness Printable Report
(Pulse Wave Analysis)
This is the results screen showing the final report for arterial stiffness. This example test report shows a type 1 graph, which is excellent arterial compliance (flexibility). When the machine arrives, it also comes with a manual and an interpretive guide so that you can easily interpret the results. The Max Pulse arterial stiffness report includes a very powerful feature. The report shows what percentage of heartbeats fell into each category. When the heart beats, it does so a little bit differently each and every time. So while the machine will give you an overall type from 1-7, it will also show you percentages next to each type. In this instance, notice that the patient had 60.4% of their heart beats fall in type 1 and the rest were type 2. This shows a type 1 starting to degrade to a type 2. When you see lower scores these percentages become more and more important. For example one person may score a type 2 result that is split between type 1 and type 2. That is good. Another person might score a type 2 result that is split between a type 2 and type 3. That is concerning and the patient should take that degradation seriously.
Heart Rate Variability Test Report
The Max Pulse can be run in 3 minute mode, and in this case it will perform an arterial test and a full evaluation of the autonomic nervous system using our highly advanced evaluation system.
The Max Pulse is an FDA Approved Class II Medical Device.
