The advantages of low cost, user-friendliness, accuracy, optimal sensitivity and ability to embed suggest that the Perichek™ system be considered as a first line technology for both clinical and consumer applications.
Designed for integration into any hospital patient monitoring suite, this module incorporates proprietary DermaFlow peripheral blood flow monitoring technology. The module’s output may be displayed along with data generated on the variety of clinical parameters already present in the suite.
Each Perichek™ module services one peripheral blood flow sensor. Two or more modules may be incorporated into the suite should multiple sensor locations be required.
