PhysioAge

The first step to aging well is knowing how well you're aging

 

What is Your PhysioAge?

Your PhysioAge is the aggregate age of your major organ systems. It's how old you are based on your body and not just your birthday.

How well are you aging?

  • Find out how fast you are aging
  • Identify your precursors to disease
  • Recognize your weakest body system
  • Receive a comprehensive, individualized health profile
 

PhysioAge is the first physical exam that measures how your body's aging.

Why should I take the PhysioAge Systems test?

To find out how well you are aging

Because you want to know how well each of your important body systems is aging, so you can identify your weakest link and do something about it before you develop a disease. Recognizing your body's unique strengths and weaknesses can help you achieve improved quality of life and sustained health. PhysioAge Systems provides a unique health profile that is tailored for you to identify your current and future health status.

As an example, you may be 60 years old but have the arteries of a 75-year-old. Your doctor might want to address this risk by treating your cardiovascular system now, rather than waiting until you develop heart disease.

How does PhysioAge measure my health and aging?

  Using sophisticated Biomarkers of Aging

We will perform several painless, noninvasive tests on you and may draw some blood. You will also take a 15-minute computerized brain function test, either at home or in our office. The results of these tests are submitted to a web-based reporting platform, which automatically generates a comprehensive report listing your physiological ages as well as easy-to-understand descriptions of up to 160 individual results. You will have access to your results via a secure and private online portal for future reference.


The PhysioAge® Composite index

Explains 80% of the differences in the aging process

Working with our Stanford University biomathematician, we analyzed relationships among various biomarkers to develop the formulas used to calculate the physiological ages of six important organ systems. Then we developed the PhysioAge Composite, a weighted composite index of these six underlying ages. The PhysioAge® Composite is able to explain 80% of the difference amongst individuals in the aging process. No other system comes close to this benchmark in measuring the physiological age of important organ systems.

 
 
CardioAge®
CardioAge® Arterial Stiffness Testing with SphygmoCor by Atcor Medical Measures the suppleness of your arteries using pulse wave analysis Assesses cardiovascular risk by measuring augmentation pressure The gold standard in central blood pressure assessment, the SphygmoCor has been used in more clinical studies than any other device. Central blood pressure has been shown to be a superior predictor of cardiovascular events. In fact, the Mayo Clinic has adopted the Sphygmo-Cor as the standard hyper-tension screening device. Functioning essentially like an non-invasive A-line, SphygmoCor CP takes a 10-second snapshot of the radial arterial pres-sure wave and derives the ascending aortic pressure wave, providing critical cardiovascular measurements including cen-tral blood pressure, aortic aug-mentation index, ejection duration and subendocardial viability ratio. Our algorithms calculate a CardioAge based on augmentation pressure, the most age-sensitive measurement generated.
CutoAge®
CutoAge® Skin Elasticity Testing with C+K Cutometer Assesses the elasticity of the skin with the same instrument used in numerous clinical trials of OTC and pharmaceutical skin care products Determines the propensity to develop wrinkles by measuring elasticity, firmness, and resistance to stress The Cutometer MPA 580 is the gold standard in dermatology to measure elasticity and other biomechanical parameters of the skin. The device uses gentle suction to draw the skin into the aperture of the probe, where penetration depth is deter-mined by an optical measuring system. The resistance of the skin to be sucked up by negative pressure (firmness) and its ability to return into its original position (elasticity) are dis-played as curves. Our algorithms calculate a CutoAge based on the most age-sensitive parameters of these curves.
PulmoAge®
PulmoAge® Pulmonary Function Testing with Midmark® Spirometer Measures forced expiratory volume (FEV1/FCV), which is highly correlated with age Predicts all-cause mortality, not just mortality from pulmonary disease Midmark IQSpiro® - Digital Spirometer The Midmark IQspiro® digital spirometery system is designed to make detection simple and effective.
NeuroAge®
NeuroAge® Cognitive Assessment Testing with CNS Vital Signs Measures the most highly age-sensitive aspects of cognitive function using a computerized battery of tests Functions as an effective screen for mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.
ImmunoAge®
ImmunoAge® Immune Function Testing by UCLA School of Medicine Measures the health of the immune system using proprietary algorithms of standard immune subsets Utilizes cutting-edge molecular markers for senescent and naïve T-cells
TelomerAge®
TelomerAge® Telomere Length Measurement by Repeat Diagnostics®
