PhysioWave Pro

PhysioWave Pro seamlessly combines advanced sensing technologies and intelligent data fusion algorithms into an elegant, modern design to measure PWV accurately and efficiently. PhysioWave is prioritizing its product pipeline efforts in areas with greatest clinical and commercial promise: cardiovascular risk stratification, intake screening for emergency departments, chronic disease management, and remote home monitoring.

Intellectual Property

The PhysioWave team has worked hard to build a robust product and portfolio of patents, with twenty issued, over twenty currently pending, and more on the way.
