Taking the "High" Out of High Blood Pressure


SUNNYVALE, CA―(March 28, 2016) ―The medical technology company, PhysioCue, Inc., has released the results of the initial clinical trial of their patented, non-invasive 1.0 Hypertension Reduction Therapy Device that has consistently shown blood pressure reductions of 15 to 25 points (mmHg) in systolic and diastolic readings. Their clinical trial has shown blood pressure levels dropping to “good” and “excellent” levels in 87 percent of the 60 patients who participated in their study.

These results are equivalent to prior clinical studies that measured high blood pressure reduction from prescription drugs, but the PhysioCue therapy is immediate and, unlike drugs, has no negative side effects. PhysioCue has demonstrated that its 1.0 device is the first non-invasive medical therapy to immediately address hypertension. It will also be tested in San Antonio at the Texas Veterans Health Care System and University Hospital under the direction of cardiologist Robert Chilton, M.D.

 

How PhysioCue’s Hypertension Therapy Device Works

More than 350,000 Americans die every year from hypertension. The American Heart Association (AHA) says that more than 67 million Americans over the age of 20 have hypertension, which is abnormally high blood pressure that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.

PhysioCue’s 1.0 Hypertension Reduction Therapy Device uses a patented vascular cooling system that, applied externally for only 5 minutes, targets the carotid artery with a cold-tip therapy that triggers the brain to lower blood pressure naturally, with or without medications. Danen Ventures, TEEC Angels, and Jiuyou Fund are funding the research and development.
