VedaPulse Pro pulse variability measurement device for heart health and health in general
VedaPulsePro is the new digital diagnostic biofeedback tool for holistic body health assessment. It measures pulse changes every millisecond within 5-7 min. The pulse wave is considered a core component of diagnostic methods used in Ayurveda, traditional Chinese and Korean medicine for thousands of years. The VedaPulse measurement combines Western technology with Oriental Medicine.
VedaPulse(TM) is an innovative medical device for providing the in-depth health diagnosis based on two methods: Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and the methodology of Ayurveda Medicine. While developing algorithms for VedaPulse(TM) computer pulse diagnosis, Dr. Sorokin was using the ideas of the famous Ayurvedic doctor in the West - Dr. Vasant Lad.
VedaPulsePro is able to evaluate:
Emotional stress level
Adaptive reserve rate and vital energy
Ayurvedic body constitution
Subdoshas balance. Five elements. Body tissues (dhatus)
A balance between Sympathetic - Parasympathetic and Central Nerve Systems
Energy flow in 12 meridians (Traditional Chinese Medicine), the tendency to lack or excess energy in the functional systems.
The level of functional tension or functional weakness of the organs and systems can be a predictive marker for the aging process and marker for the disease.
How does it work?
"VedaPulse" measures the change in the rhythm of the heart every millisecond.
The network of blood vessels covers the entire body. The movement of blood begins from the ventricles of the heart, then along the arteries and capillaries reaches the most remote parts of the body and returns to the heart atria through the veins. The circulatory system constantly responds to various changing needs of the body. For example, to perform any physical work, a flow of blood rushes to the muscle; while digesting food, the flow of blood rushes to the stomach. Inflamed tissue requires an increased flow of the blood.
It looks like the heart listens to the internal organs' needs. A change in the pulse wave is a consequence of the changing rhythm of the heart.
The nerve system controls all circulatory processes. The brain, through the nervous system, collects information about the organs' needs and regulates the work of the heart and blood vessels.
Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is tied to every automatic process in the body and comprises two main branches that control the body. It regulates blood sugar, body temperature, blood pressure, sweat, digestion, and much more. With VedaPulse ANS activity can be precisely measured.
The autonomic nervous system has two divisions: the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS).
Parasympathetic nervous system
Controls the body at rest
is responsible for "rest and digest" function
It reduces the heart rate
PNS is a slower system
Uses acetylcholine (ACh) as its neurotransmitter.
When a nerve impulse arrives at the motor neuron,
ACh is released and activates contraction of smooth muscles,
dilatation of blood vessels. It increases bodily secretions and
slows heart rate.
Sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions function antagonistically to preserve a dynamic modulation of vital functions.
Each system dominates at a particular time, which affects the body accordingly.
The autonomic nervous system is highly adaptable and allows the organism to maintain its balance when experiencing stress.
A lack of flexibility and a rigid system can lead to somatic and psychological pathologies, increased risk for adverse
cardiovascular events, including ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death.
Spectral components of heart rate frequencies.
VedaPulse is able to measure the body regulatory level of the central nerve system, sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve system by pulse rate
The Autonomic Assessment Report, developed by the HeartMath Research Center, provides physicians, researchers and mental health-care professionals with a diagnostic tool to detect abnormalities and imbalances in the autonomic nervous system and predict those at increased risk of developing various pathologies often before symptoms become manifest.
Heart Rate Variability analysis method is recommended by the European Society of Cardiology and the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology.
Sympathetic nervous system
Controls the body's responses to triggers
is responsible for the "fight or flight" response
It accelerates the heart rate.
SNS is a faster system
Tightly connects with adrenal glands and regulates the release of the adrenal hormones (epinephrine and norepinephrine). They are the flight/fight hormones that are released when the body is under extreme stress.
Researchers have used the measure of heart rate variability as a marker for health, aging and wellbeing of individuals (Vaschillo E, et al.2002). It was found that HRV characterizes not only heart health but all other body organs and system health [Papaioannou T. G. et al. 2010].
VedaPulse digital device is designed to determine:
General health level
Adaption - personal ability to handle and adjust to external and internal stimuli, ability to achieve balance while preserving a healthy state
Rate of biological aging
HRV for Ayurveda diagnostic
For millennia, ayurvedic measurements have been performed by feeling the wrist pulse with fingers. It can be done with highly trained specialists in Oriental Medicine. VedaPulse does it digitally recording heart rate every millisecond. HRV shows the current Ayurvedic state of the person and determines the body constitution type, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, the equilibrium of the body’s energy centers, Dosha and Subdosha balance, Agni Dhatu, “Pulse of the organs”. From the perspective of Ayurveda, a constitutional approach is very important. In Ayurveda, any disease is considered, first of all, as a violation of the balance of three doshas.
