Device Name:Sphygmocor Xcel
Manufacturer:Atcor Medical, Unit 11, West Ryde Corporate Centre, 1059-1063 Victoria Rd, West Ryde, NSW 2114, AUSTRALIA.
Measuring functions:Blood pressure
Primary Client Use:Intended for professional use including central aortic pressure

Availability:Available Currently
Description: The AtCor Sphygmocor Xcel is a clinically validated automatic blood pressure monitor. Measurements are taken from the radial artery and it is intended for professional use including central aortic pressure.

The technology used in the AtCor Sphygmocor Xcel, to measure blood pressure, has passed in a clinical validation study, in a general population, according to a recognised standard protocol, as published in a peer-reviewed publication.

Accuracy AssessmentRecommendationBasis
MedavalNoneWhen an evaluation is carried out using a non-standard protocol, no inference can be made on accuracy based on a standard protocol.
