Blood flow measurement devices are used to measure the volume rate of blood flow, which helps physicians to maintain equilibrium between blood supply and demand of tissue oxygen of patients. The measurement of blood flow helps in identifying blockages in the blood vessels and testing artificial blood vessels during organ transplantation, among others. These devices are imperative for diagnosing various clinical vascular conditions such as arterial occlusion, peripheral vascular diseases including diabetes, micro- and macro-vascular complications. The devices also find applications in skin testing, cerebral blood flow measurement, and burn assessment.
