Perimed’s LDV Flowmeter
Perimed’s product line of laser-Doppler flowmeters originated from research activities initiated in 1977 at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Linköping University in Linköping, Sweden, where a research contract with the Swedish National Board for Technical Development supported a survey of various methods for the assessment of peripheral blood flow. The results of this survey and the early work on tissue laser-Doppler flowmeters by Stern  and Holloway and Watkins  inspired a project to develop a laser-Doppler flowmeter for use both in clinical settings and in experimental medicine.
