„A.L. Copley Best Paper Prize“ For the best release in 2016- includes – The DVA from Imedos

Imedos cordially congratulates Dr. Thomas Neumann of the University Clinic of Jena (now cantonal hospital St Gallen / Switzerland) for the winning of the "A.L. Copley Best Paper Prize "of the scientific journal" Clinical Hemorheology and Microcirculation ". The jury chose the article "Retinal vessel regulation at high altitude" by Dr. Dr. Neumann and colleagues et al. In terms of originality and innovation as well as the expected impact on position 1.

For this study, the subjects climbed a 3000-meter-high mountain, in order to allow  scientists to examine their retinal vessels. Included was the contact lens dynamometer and the  DVA of Imedos Systems was equipped with static and dynamic vessel analysis as well as oximetry. It was found that at high altitudes retinal arteries and veins expand in their diameter and that their response to flicker light is impaired. The active agent “Macitentan”, an endothelin receptor antagonist, was administered and its influence on the regulation of the retinal vessels at high altitude could be studied.
