"The mDLS sensor is easily deployed, simple to operate and robust. Its raw signals translate into novel indices of cardiovascular risks: endothelial function, global coagulation status of the blood, a measurement of Red Blood Cells (RBCs) aggregation rate, and fibrinogen concentration in blood.

In addition, by intensively analyzing the high-resolution blood pulse wave, the sensor can continuously and non-invasively measure a set of physiological parameters such as respiratory rate, systolic blood pressure trends, cardiac contractility, cardiac valve dysfunction and Traube-Hering-Mayer oscillations.

Utilizing this information, the platform can detect health perturbations related to Cardiac, Vascular, Respiratory and Neurological pathologies," as mentioned in the mDLS sensor info page.
