February 8, 2010

The LifeDop 300 ABI from Summit Doppler Systems is an economical, hand-held ankle brachial index (ABI) system allows clinicians to perform the exam faster. The system has a keypad feature for easily entering pressure data and calculating the indices. It stores pressure data and two ankle waveforms prior to printing.

The device includes a bi-directional Doppler probe for obtaining systolic pressures and waveforms. A high-speed printer prints waveforms required for reimbursement on adhesive-backed label paper for easy placement on assessment forms. The system comes with four blood pressure cuffs and an aneroid.
