AgeMeter

The AgeMeter is revolutionizing the way age is truly measured – by assessing key biomarkers.

Our story.

AgeMeter is a successor to the H-SCAN Functional Age Test, which was introduced in 1990. Centers For Age Control, the company behind the AgeMeter, and its founder was a dealer and then a distributor of the H-SCAN from 1999 until 2013 when the H-SCAN was discontinued by the Hoch Company, the developer and manufacturer of the H-SCAN. Centers for Age Control is leveraging today’s most forward-looking technologies to bring the H-SCAN into the forefront of medical tech at a cost-effective price. While the H-SCAN sold for $23,750, the AgeMeter is shipping at just $7,500.

Functions that contribute to quality of life.

Quality of life depends on the ability to function. Beginning at about age 35, declines occur in functions that are essential for the activities of daily living. The AgeMeter measures the most important of these, including memory, reactions, hearing, agility, decision speed, movement speed, tactile sense, and lung function.
By measuring such biomarkers of aging and comparing scores to norms by age and sex, the AgeMeter determines a person’s functional age for the tests, as opposed to his or her chronological age.

Functional declines proceed at different rates in different individuals. Genetic factors play a role, but so does environment, diet, and life style, providing evidence that intervention in the aging process is possible. Originally developed as a research tool to test interventions in aging, the AgeMeter now finds application in clinical practices with a focus on aging.

All-in-one package.

AgeMeter is a self-contained software built on Apple’s leading iOS ecosystem. The package includes the Apple iPad pre-loaded with the encrypted AgeMeter application, along with all supporting hardware used in precise measurements and calculations.

Seamless design.

AgeMeter employs a simple, easy-to-use design that can guide patients through the tests without the need of oversight. Simply add your patient’s details, then start the test. From there, the video guides and text prompts will allow them to navigate through all biomarker tests with ease.

Memory
Taking a look at short-term memory
Visual Accommodation
How are one’s eyes holding up to age

How the original H-SCAN biomarkers were chosen and validated.

The primary consideration for selecting the 12 biomarkers of aging in the H-SCAN, out of the many tested by labs around the world, was that their decline most directly impacts the quality of life.

Unlike blood and other biochemical tests, no explanation is needed to recognize that memory, lung function, reaction time, hearing, vision, muscle movement, and so on, are involved in virtually all mental or physical activities all day long, and that the ability to function effectively in these respects is synonymous with successful living and aging.

The H-SCAN age tests were the subject of the largest published study of biomarkers of aging to date. The subject population was comprised of 2,462 employees of 17 U.S. life insurance companies. In order to avoid an interest-in-health bias, as is typical of volunteers, all participants were non-volunteers. The study was designed to:

(1) test the validity of the 12 H-SCAN biomarkers of aging;

(2) provided norms and statistical measures for each of the age tests;

(3) determine separately by sex how 17 dietary, life style, environmental, and genetic factors, (including smoking, exercise, and red meat consumption) relate to the rate of biological aging.

Applications of the AgeMeter in clinical practice.
  • TAILORING: The assessment provided by the AgeMeter helps health professionals to tailor therapeutic approaches to the individual.
  • MONITORING: Repeating the age tests over months or years allows monitoring of changes in individual functions and functional age.
  • MOTIVATING: Learning one. s functional age is a great stimulus to action, no matter what the result. Participants are more apt to stay with a therapy program and put forth the effort required when their goal is to shoot for retest.

“A device that can accurately and quickly estimate biological age is badly needed in the field and would be a huge benefit to consumers interest in changing their life’s trajectory.”
