Introduction


We have all heard the old sayings, "if you don't have your health, you don't have anything," and "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." It stands to reason that if we are able to prevent health problems from happening in the first place, the quality of our lives will dramatically improve. All doctors agree that early detection of not just diseases, but the warning signs of potential health concerns are critical to our overall health.

Here are a few facts that affect us all. Cardiovascular (heart) disease is the number one cause of death, and hypertension is the most important factor that leads to this condition. What you may not know is that arterial stiffness is recognized as a key risk for all cardiovascular events. Many other diseases have been associated with elevated levels of arterial stiffness such as hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, SLE, overt and subclinical hypothyroidism, Alzheimer's dementia, renal (kidney) disease, insulin resistance even diabetes.

So how do you easily determine your arterial stress? Simple. With the exclusive, revolutionary BioAge Monitor. The BioAge Monitor quickly and easily gives you a report that shows many of the key health indicators that will allow you understand some of the vital messages your body is trying to send you to get healthy and stay that way.


How does the monitor work?

The BioAge Monitor uses the gold standard for measuring the stiffness of arteries called Pulse Wave Volume analysis (PWV). Using this technology is safe, accurate, completely painless (in fact you won't feel anything at all), easy, and only takes a few seconds to complete. The finger scanner sends a pulse or wave through your finger to your vascular system and receives a reflective wave in return. By measuring the distance the pulse traveled and the time taken to receive the reflective wave back to the scanner, the elasticity of the entire vascular and muscular arteries is determined.


What information does the Monitor tell me about my health?

Your BioAge Report provides several key health indicators that are easy to understand. The report also provides you with information about each measurement and what it means to your health. Plus, you'll see how your score compares to international health standards so you know where you stand.

Biological Age: Your body's biological age in terms of fitness and overall health.
Heart Rate: Your resting heart rate provides an indication of your hearts overall strength.
Stiffness Index (SI): This number is the overall stiffness or elasticity of your arteries.
Reflection Index (RI): Measurement of the time taken for the Pulse Wave to reflect back.
SP02 (Oxygenation): The amount of oxygen being carried by your red blood cells.
Body Mass Index (BMI): Body fat levels based on your weight and height.


Is this backed by Science?

Yes! The BioAge Monitor has been in used for several years in the UK. The device has undergone extensive clinical trials in one of the world's leading research hospitals, St. Joseph's, in London. The research team was led by renowned researchers, Prof. Phil Chowienczyk and Dr. Sandrine Millasseau.
