Long Life Cardio offers two machines the use the same core technology.
The Meridian DPA and the Max Pulse are both running the same algorithm and are based on the same initial scientific research studies and development process. The devices are using the same core information and though the reports are formatted differently, much the same information is being presented. They both perform an arterial analysis and give the patient a score from 1-7 (or A-G) for the seven types of arterial health.
he Meridian DPA has more metrics in its report. It has a detailed analysis of circulation constriction which the Max Pulse does not display. But the Max Pulse shows the actual percentage of heart beats in each category and this provides an invaluable deep look as arterial health changes.
Physically, the Meridian DPA is also a device and has an on-board screen and an on-board printer. This means that the Meridian DPA can be used without a laptop which can be useful in some settings.
The MaxPulse is much smaller and lighter, but must be used with a laptop as it has no user interface built in (see the image above). The Max Pulse reports, while having fewer metrics are actually easier to understand for patients and lay out the information in a much easier to understand format.
The Max Pulse comes with a 5 year warranty and has excellent on-going support. The Meridian DPA has a 12 month warranty and is towards the end of its life cycle. Repairs are possible for the Max Pulse, but can be hard for the Meridian DPA where some parts are very hard to find.

The devices are very similar in that they use a highly sophisticated algorithm to analyze the arterial pulse wave and give readings for both arterial stiffness and stress levels.
