PhysioAge Systems Website FAQ

  1. To collect the measurements we require, you will need to purchase or lease three pieces of equipment. For the latest prices, please contact us at
  2. Each assessment costs you $62. Most docs charge their patients $200 – $300.
  • It takes about an hour for your medical assistant to collect the measurements, but today’s demonstration takes only 15 minutes.
  • Our system compares each patient’s results against our database of over 2,000 patients to determine their corresponding physiological age. For instance, if I’m 45 but I have the arteries of a 35-year-old, my CardioAge is 35.
  1. Each instrument is FDA approved for its indications.
  2. We did not seek FDA approval because our system doesn’t diagnose or treat disease.
  1. We only utilize the most validated equipment – the instruments used in the most clinical studies. They are considered the Gold Standard.
  2. Our system provides statistically valid results from a database of over 3,000 patients.
  3. Our PhysioAge Composite (which is a weighted average of the underlying ages) has an r-squared of .84.
  1. Jerry provides one day of biomarker testing training via Skype.
  2. Raffaele provides two hours of clinical interpretation training by phone.
  • Your lifetime support includes perpetual refresher training for new staff and retraining for refresher staff, all at no additional charge.
  1. The Sphygmocor measures arterial compliance using Pulse Wave Analysis and central blood pressure.
  2. The cutometer measures skin elasticity by gently sucking up then releasing the skin with a vacuum. It measures how fast the skin returns back to normal using a laser.
  3. The spirometer measures lung function by calculating FEV1.
  4. CNS Vital Signs measures cognitive function using an online assessment.
  5. Repeat diagnostics measures telomeres using Flow-FISH.
  6. UCLA measures immune function using a custom assay that looks at CD28 and CD95 lymphocytes.
  1. CardioAge: augmentation pressure
  2. PulmoAge: FEV1
  3. CutoAge: skin elasticity
  4. NeuroAge: processing speed and reaction time
  5. TelomerAge: mean telomere length in lymphocytes
  6. ImmunoAge: CD-28 and CD-95 cells in lymphocytes

Biomarker Testing Questions

Our basic package requires only three devices: Sphygmocor, Cutometer and Spirometer. To generate a report you’ll need to purchase or lease all three devices.

Patient cost will depend on the equipment you choose to acquire and the blood tests they choose to take. Suggested retail price using the four required pieces of equipment is $195. This includes CardioAge, CutoAge, NeuroAge, PulmoAge and handgrip strength. Adding blood panels could cost significantly more, depending on tests ordered. Some insurance plans will cover the optional Quest/Labcorp panels. You are free to charge your patients any price you wish.

Of the PhysioAge components, TelomerAge and ImmunoAge require separate blood tests. See Health Status Indicators for a detailed breakdown of the tests required for each biomarker.

All biomarkers related to bone density, body composition, oxygen comsumption and CIMT rely on optional equipment (bone densitometer, InBody and ultrasound, respectively). You are not required to purchase or lease any of this optional equipment. However, Partners who adopt the PhysioAge brand must use the body composition machine in their practice.

The biomarker equipment fits on a standard computer cart, which must be situated next to an exam table. Both the Sphygmocor and the Cutometer occupy a space of about one square foot, and they sit stacked together.
