VENDYS: A NOVEL BIOMARKER FOR CLINICAL TRIALS
VENDYS uses Simple Technology to produce valuable data
Cardiovascular Health Information at your Fingertips

How does VENDYS work?

The VENDYS® test begins with an automated blood pressure measurement, followed by cuff occlusion of the right arm. During the cuff occlusion (2 to 5 minutes), fingertip temperature in the right hand falls because of the absence of warm circulating blood. Once the cuff is released, blood flow rushes into the forearm and hand, causing a temperature rebound (TR) in the fingertip which is directly proportional to the vascular reactivity. Read more...

About Vascular Function


  • Vascular reactivity is a vital component of vascular function that enables adjustments of blood flow and alterations of vessel tone and diameter, when needed. Healthier arteries have higher vasodilative capacity and are more reactive. Read more...

Non-invasive

  • VENDYS uses small temperature sensors to detect blood flow that can be adhered to fingertips and toes.

Inexpensive

  • The technology behind VENDYS is simple yet produces valuable information about one's cardiovascular system. VENDYS is inexpensive compared to other devices.

Automated

  • VENDYS is fully automated and is operator-independent. It is a popular choice for researchers and medical professionals.
