Welch-Allyn ABPM 7100 with PWA SW upgrade

Welch Allyn GmbH, Germany

  • The Welch-Allyn device is a user-independent, simple and fast single upper-arm diastolic cuff pressure-based method.

  • The device uses the same algorithm (ARCSolver) available in Mobil-o-Graph (18). For this reason, we refer to the relevant scientific papers of Mobil-o- Graph.

  • **It delivers unreliable PWVao measurement (ARC Solver Algorithm). The measured PWVao correlates 99% with age and SBP indicating no real PWVao measurement (19,20,21).

  • The SBPao validated invasively (22).

  • The device uses non-validated generalized transfer function (GTF) (18). 

  • PWA upgrade is not available in the USA.

  • *No paper is available about invasive AIXao validation.
