SUNNYVALE, CA―(March 15, 2017) ―Medical technology company, PhysioCue, Inc., has announced their enhanced-functioning PhysioCue 2.0 Hypertension Reduction Therapy Device that consistently and sustainably reduces blood pressure by 15 to 25 points (mmHg) in systolic and diastolic readings. PhysioCue demonstrated that its 1.0 device was the first non-invasive medical therapy device to immediately and effectively address hypertension. Their enhanced-functioning 2.0 device is also being tested at the Texas Veterans Health Care System and University Hospital, San Antonio, under the direction of cardiologist Robert Chilton, M.D.
Roughly half of the adults on the planet have hypertension, which is abnormally high blood pressure that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks and strokes, yet only half of them receive any treatment whatsoever. Anti-hypertension drugs are the standard treatment for hypertension, but drugs are expensive, frequently unavailable, and often have very unpleasant side-effects.
How It Works
PhysioCue’s 2.0 Hypertension Reduction Therapy Device employs patented vascular cooling technology that targets the carotid artery with a 5-minute daily surface application of cold-tip therapy that triggers the brain to lower blood pressure naturally, with or without medications.
PhysioCue’s 2.0 device also includes an embedded BP Biosensor that records vital signs before and after therapy sessions. This data is then transmitted to the user’s smartphone via the PhysioCue app.
PhysioCue is a medical technology company that researches and has developed several life science therapy products that are improving quality of life and extending the life expectancy of consumers. In 2017, Physiocue is bringing several non-invasive therapy devices to the market that treat hypertension and migraine/headaches.
PhysioCue is also introducing wearable devices that help patients better monitor and manage their overall health and vital signs data using a PhysioCue mobile application for data retention and management.
PhysioCue is headquartered in the heart of Silicon Valley, California, at the famous Plug and Play Technology Center.
