Ankle-Brachial Index Measurement

Simple solution for diagnosing PAD

Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) is a very simple comparison of blood pressure in the arm and legs. It is non-invasive and painless. With MESI ABPI MD, the procedure becomes reliable, objective and even possible to be performed as a screening device in primary healthcare. ABI screening is incredibly important for at least two reasons:

  • It is a reliable predictor of the occlusion of lower extremity arteries - PAD. Detection of PAD is even more important when we know, that over 70% of the population is not aware of the occlusions at all.
  • Because of high correspondence of PAD with Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Cerebrovascular Disease (CVD), patients diagnosed with PAD have a great chance of early diagnosis of CAD and CVD as well.
