A-PULSE CASPal® is a simple device for the measurement of Central Aortic Systolic Pressure(CASP) in a simple clinic or home setting. It is a world-first portable CASP measurement device developed by HealthSTATS International. It is empowered by EVBP technology; a FDA listed and patented technology using modified applanation tonometry on the radial artery at the position of the wrist. It is completely non-invasive, painless and easy-to-operate. It is specially designed for home user for ease of use to obtain CASP.

  2. Wrist sensor module based on the technology of the BPro® monitor device

  3. Built-in software algorithm for blood pressure measurement and calculation based on the A-PULSE CASP® software

  4. Integrated oscillometric blood pressure module for calibration

The A-PULSE CASPal® device provides patients and clinicians with a new level of usability, comfort and convenience. It is accurate, affordable and simple enough to be used in a home or clinic setting.

The A-PULSE CASPal® main device is an independent, stand-alone monitor with monochrome LCD display. It is driven by a powerful MCU (microcontroller unit), which operates as the main core in the system and performs the following functions:

  1. Process and calculate real-time capture signal from the wrist sensor module

  2. Display BP related parameters such as SYS, DIA, pulse rate, and CASP

  3. Interface with peripheral modules such as the integrated NIBP calibrator module

A-PULSE CASPal® wrist sensor

The device is equipped with a wrist sensor module which is to be worn on the patient’s wrist for blood pressure measurement. The sensor module is designed based on the concept of the BPro® device which looks similar to a watch-like device and can be worn easily on the radial artery for measuring blood pressure non-invasively. The sensor’s position is maintained by applying a consistent tension (applanation) on the artery.
