Through early recognition of Blood Flow Disorders in extremities and forefoot area.
oABI, TBI, PWV
Determine Toe Pressure, Pulse Wave Velocity, Heart Rate Variability and more parameters.
PWI™ – Pulse Wave Index
The Pulse Wave Index is a clear and sensitive parameter based on pulse wave shape to determine the severity of blood flow disorders in significantly less time.
Record the patients' blood circulation after passive and active stress tests, such as knee bends and toe tip stands, for effective clarification.
Micro- and Macrocirculation
Assess the Micro- and Macrocirculation to estimate the Wound Healing success.
In 3 Minutes
Simultaneous measurement of pulse waves and parameters in under 3 minutes.
The innovative method provides a fast and secure diagnosis of the peripheral vessel status of diabetics.
It allows measuring on ankle and wrists as well as on fingers and toes, including forefoot- and toe pressure measurement.
AngE DIABETIC combines four measuring cuffs and two optical sensors to enable the measurement on six measuring spots simultaneously. This creates diverse possibilities to detect blood flow disorders within the terminal vessels as well as to assess the wound healing success of diabetic patients.Request Now

Amputations per Year
Out of the 60,000 amputations per year in Germany, 40,000 arise from Diabetes.*
Diabetic Foot Syndrom
About one quarter of diabetics will suffer from a diabetic foot syndrome during their disease.*
more PAOD Cases
Diabetics are 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with peripheral artery occlusive disease.*
Simple Measuring Program in under 3 Minutes
The measurement can be conducted easily by following only a few steps and without significant stress for the patient.
After applying the cuffs on ankles and wrists, as well as the optical sensors on the toes, the system applies a pressure of 180mmHg and decreases it by steps of 10mmHg.
By recording the optical sensors, the examiner can immediately determine the pressure step at which the patient’s toes show the first pulsations. Different key indicators, like the oABI, the PWI, the amplitude or the peak time of the pulse wave, are recorded simultaneously.
The innovative TOPP method was developed in collaboration with:
Prof. Dr. Georg Horstick
Practice for Vascular and Cardiac Medicine
The high sensitivity of the optical sensors allow for a good documentation of the pulse waves, even with marginal blood flow. Given the virtually unfiltered display of pulse curves, dicrotic waves can be clearly identified for healthy and elastic arteries.
I consider SOT to be the European market leader for D-PPG measurements. The AngE Phlebo is a miniaturized device with high-quality, sophisticated evaluation software.
