D.E. Hokanson, Inc. (Hokanson) provides non-invasive diagnostic instruments of the highest quality to the medical community – manufacturing instruments with a commitment to excellence in research, materials and workmanship.
Founded by D. Eugene Hokanson in 1973, Hokanson originally opened its doors to provide instruments and accessories for vascular research and clinical testing at the Seattle Veterans Affairs Hospital and the University of Washington Medical Center.
Hokanson developed instruments using pulse wave and continuous wave Doppler technology, three forms of plethysmography, specialized blood pressure cuffs, and blood pressure cuff inflators in order to facilitate ground-breaking peripheral vascular physiological testing. The primary impetus was atherosclerosis, as well as other diseases and conditions that impeded arterial blood flow and venous return. As vascular disease was more widely studied, Hokanson introduced computerized instrumentation for non-invasive blood flow testing and vascular disease diagnosis in human limbs.
Today, Hokanson, Inc. provides non-invasive diagnostic instruments of the highest quality to the clinical and research communities. For over 40 years Hokanson has been both a progressive and reliable resource for the vascular community….
