Vascular Doppler, pulse volume recording, photo plethysmography


Atys has been manufacturing devices for the diagnosis of peripheral vascular disease (peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and venous insufficiency) for 30 years.

BASIC is ideal for all routine exams. It offers an unbeatable value for money but without compromising on efficiency and usability.

  • Doppler curve recording
  • Photoplethysmography curve recording (PPG)
  • Pulse Volume Recording (PVR)
  • Measurement of ankle systolic pressure
  • Measurement of Ankle Brachial Index (ABI)
  • Measurement of toe systolic pressure
  • Measurement of finger systolic pressure
  • Measurement  of Toe Brachial Index (TBI)
  • Measurement of pulse wave velocity

Five models make up the BASIC range to best meet the requirements of all users.

BASIC- Atys medical vascular Doppler

A complete range

BASIC 1: 4 and 8 MHz continuous Doppler

BASIC 2: Continuous Doppler + bilateral PPG

BASIC 3.1: One cuff can be connected to the BASIC 3.1. This is a BASIC 2 + automatic measurement of systolic pressure with Doppler.

BASIC 3.2: Two cuffs can be connected simultaneously to BASIC 3.2. This is a BASIC 3.1 + bilateral toe/finger systolic pressure measurement+ bilateral systolic pressure measurement with PPG (ankle, arm, ...) + bilateral Pulse Volume Recording.

BASIC 3.4: Four cuffs can be connected simultaneously to BASIC 3.4. This is a BASIC 3.2 + simultaneous measurement with PPG of the right and left brachial pressures and of the right and left ankle or toe pressures.

Automatic measurement of systolic blood pressures

The BASIC automatically inflates and deflates the cuffs. However, the user can regain control of these operations when necessary, especially in the case of severe stenosis.

The BASIC detects the return flow after occlusion and displays the corresponding systolic pressure value. This value can be adjusted by the user.

Time saving and precision

Using the PPG module, the BASIC 3.4 simultaneously measures four pressures (2 brachial and 2 at the ankle or toe).

Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) and Toe Brachial Index (TBI) are thus obtained quickly.

In addition, the simultaneous measurement of the pressures makes it possible to avoid blood pressure variations that may occur during a longer examination.

The cuffs are deflated at a constant rate. This ensures the accuracy of the measurements compared to manual deflation which is often too fast.


  • Direct printing of examination reports on local or network A4 printer
  • Export of examination reports to USB key (in ODT or PDF)
  • Network connection
  • PC connection for storing examination reports or printing them out

Compact device

BASIC is the most compact device on the market that offers all the features expected on a vascular physiologic diagnostic system for routine application (peripheral arterial disease PAD, venous insufficiency).
