The Max Pulse is a simple, non-invasive, FDA Class II medical screening device that provides measurements using technologies to access overall cardiovascular and autonomic nervous system (function level of organs) and stress levels.

How it Works
Using a finger clip, the blood’s pulsewave is followed from the time it leaves the heart and travels through the blood vessels down to the finger. The pulsewave is a snapshot into the cardiovascular system and evaluates arterial elasticity (arterial stiffness), which is related to atherosclerosis. Arterial stiffness is a major cardiovascular risk factor.

The Test Analyzes:

  • Overall cardiovascular health
  • Constriction power of vessels from the left ventricle
  • Overall elasticity of large, small and peripheral arteries (arterial stiffness)
  • Aging vascular health indicator
  • Heart rate
  • Arteriosclerosis progress
  • Stress levels – mental stress, physical stress, and resistance to stress
  • And other indices


Max Pulse scanning device is a useful tool in assisting individuals in the early detection of cardiovascular related issues. The test will also help assess nutritional needs. Through periodic screenings and lifestyle changes (i.e. exercise, diet, and supplementation etc.), one is able to monitor the effectiveness of these changes and how they relate to the person’s cardiovascular, autonomic and overall health.
