SMARTDOP® 30EX HADECO REVIEW 

Add to compare


The SmartDop 30EX Hadeco is the tabletop version of the Smartdop 45. That means, that a lot of the tools used for this device are reused in the aforementioned pocket doppler. When one looks at it from a basic standpoint, we know that it uses a PPG probe and auto-deflating cuffs in order to calculate PVR waveforms in the identification of atherosclerotic patients.  

However, how does it actually compare to other ABI machines in the market? 

Features 

It’s a little bit more than your usual tabletop doppler system. At least, in terms of the available features. The build itself is also very solid, and you get the following with your package:  

  • As it is primarily a doppler device, you get the usual bi-directional doppler probes for ABI and TBI examinations.  
  • SmartDop dips into modern technology a bit as well by providing convenience in the form of a built-in cuff inflator.  
  • There is also a monitor that displays recorded systolic pressures and PVR waveforms (which is conveniently backlit for easy viewing in even the harshest of light conditions.)  
  • The 30EX Hadeco also comes with the ‘Smart-V-Link’ software for Windows OS computers, which is helpful for the documentation of results. 
  • Lastly, there are two probe heads available, with an included fetal heartbeat probe at 2 MHz in frequency, and the option of getting a PPG probe as well.

Tests Performed 

As it uses dated Doppler technology, testing with the SMARTDOP® 30EX HADECO is manual. The only thing that isn’t, are the auto-inflating cuffs — which can be useful in cutting back some time for testing.  

As mentioned in the features section, this can be used to perform ABI and TBI tests to identify atherosclerotic patients with the use of bi-directional dopplers (and the optional PPG probe.) Results can be viewed live or transferred to the ‘Smart-V-Link’ software for documentation and archiving purposes.

Software Used 

The software used for the main operating unit of the SmartDop 30EX Hadeco is fairly simple. It will collect recorded waveforms and report numerical results on the LCD backlit monitor display. Of course, there is also a way of exporting and printing-off these results — with the use of the Smart-V-Link software compatible with Windows OS devices.

SMARTDOP® 30EX HADECO REVIEW 

As far as doppler devices go, the SmartDop 30EX is average. At least, in terms of available features and available tools. It’s not one to scoff at. Especially with the additional auto-inflating cuffs and the very solid build. However, it also isn’t all that different from some of the pocket dopplers created by SmartDop

Pros and Cons 

A list of pros and cons of the SmartDop® 30EX Hadeco System.  


PROS:

  • It’s a lot sturdier than most pocket dopplers. That does mean that it is less portable, but it’s still small enough that it shouldn’t get in the way.  
  • SmartDop seems to have taken modern technology into consideration when it comes to the auto-inflation feature that it provides for its cuffs. 
  • The fact that it performs both ABI and TBI exams are good as well — some tabletop dopplers only have one or the other. 
  • Lastly, recorded PVR can be exported and later printed through the Smart-V-Link software — which you can use with Windows-OS computers 

CONS:

  • The main disadvantage of using the 30EX Hadeco System is the fact that it uses outdated technology. Nowadays, there are machines that won’t require sending patients to vascular surgeons or labs and that can identify pre-clinical patients early on. These machines are also almost completely automated, unlike the 30EX which is only semi-automated.
