Our devices are the result of over 30 years of research!

The proven and worldwide well accepted Finapres® NOVA technologies are based on the most accurate and robust continuous non-invasive measurement of blood pressure and model-based computation of cardiac output (Finapres Modelflow). The original Finapres ® product line consists of the Finometer® PRO, the Finometer® MIDI, and the Portapres which are not sold anymore; however, Finapres still provides support on these products. Many renowned research institutes, as well as prominent hospitals like NASA, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and Mayo Clinic, are currently using this Finapres ® equipment.

Finapres is an associated company of Demcon, a developer, producer, and supplier of high-end medical equipment solutions. The collaboration between these companies has led to the next generation of non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring devices, the Finapres® NOVA, related software, and new clinical applications.
