For the current study, artery ageing/hardening was assessed in 597 participants using three indices: the peripheral augmentation index, evaluated by tonometry, and the cardio-ankle vascular index
and pulse wave velocity measured by oscillometry.
Diabetes patients in Ghana have abnormalities in arterial function that can be measured using aortic pulse wave velocity (PWVao) or cardio-ankle vascular index

Systolic and diastolic blood pressure, pulse rate, cardio-ankle vascular index
(CAVI), as an indicator for atherosclerosis, and ankle-brachial index (ABI), as an indicator for peripheral vascular disease, were measured using VS-1000 (Fukuda Denshi, Tokyo, Japan) .

Cardio-ankle vascular index
(CAVI) is considered to reflect arteriosclerosis of the aorta and is a novel parameter of arterial stiffness and surrogate marker of subclinical atherosclerosis (1).
At these checkups, information regarding the cardio-ankle vascular index
(CAVI) and ankle-brachial index (ABI) were routinely assessed.
Measures of glycated hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and cardio-ankle vascular index
(CAVI) all were significantly lower in the S-equol treated group compared to those in the placebo group based on changes in the indicators from the study start to the study end.
