Facts for Prelims


News: Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M) recently developed a device called ‘ARTSENS’ to assess the health and age of blood vessels which will help to provide early screening for cardiovascular diseases.
 It is a novel, non-invasive device to assess the health and age of blood vessels and thereby provide early screening for cardiovascular diseases.
 It has been developed by Healthcare Technology Innovation Centre at IIT Madras.
 It is intended for regular medical check-ups, even by non-experts, to evaluate and anticipate vascular health.
 It is powered by a proprietary non-imaging probe and an intelligent computing platform.

What can it do?
 It can assess the effect of molecular and protein-level changes in the vessel wall caused due to disease and ageing by measuring the material property in a completely non-invasive and accurate manner.
 The device comprises pressure cuffs to be affixed at the upper arm and thighs and a probe applied to the surface of the neck to detect the carotid artery.
 It measures carotid arterial stiffness, aortic pulse wave velocity and central blood pressure, all three being important markers of cardiovascular health.
