Major independent clinical studies using SphygmoCor® have shown that central pressure is a superior predictor of cardiovascular events and that it reveals important drug effects that cannot be detected with traditional cuff blood pressure measurements.

Nine of the top ten leading hospitals in the US News & World Report's 2007 edition of "America's Best Hospitals" (published October 16, 2007 at have adopted SphygmoCor® non-invasive central blood pressure measurement. In July, the Company announced that it had signed agreements with three leading international pharmaceutical companies to supply SphygmoCor® systems and clinical trial support services for new and ongoing drug trials in Europe and the United States.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. AtCor's SphygmoCor® system is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive method to measure central pressures. Central blood pressure comprises the pressure exerted by the heart's contraction, plus the added pressure, which is reflected back at the heart during that heart-beat. This combined pressure, the pressure the heart pumps against, is increased by arterial stiffening and can be reduced with lifestyle changes and drug therapies.
