Laser-Doppler Perfusion Monitoring of Microcirculation

Post-Occlusive Reactive Hyperemia (PORH) and Iontophoresis

Physical/physiological model, based on two characteristic time constants (for PORH: arterial and capillary; for Iontophoresis: diffusion and decay/removal).

  • Try the program (demo-version)
  • Obtain the full version of the program
  • Let us do the calculations for you (first try-out free; contact us); this will save you a lot of work and time!

General objective of the program:


  • Implementation of the models (PORH and Iontophoresis)
  • Fit of the model to measured time recordings of Laser-Doppler Perfusion Monitoring and calculation of model parameters
  • Averaging of parameters over groups of subjects (e.g. patients versus healthy control persons)
