GDV programs are formed as a sequence of pages leading the user step by step along the accepted scheme of GDV image analysis. This makes the study process maximally convenient and clear, even to a person hardly familiar with computers. The programs for diagnostics (sector analysis) work with lists of subjects that enable the user to store not only personal information (name, gender, age, etc.) but also comments about GDV capturing. The user may edit the information, delete it, or add new capturing, thus producing a document filing that can be transferred to another computer.
Purpose of GDV Capture v.1: static and dynamic capturing of GDV-images of human fingers; static and dynamic capturing of series of GDV-images in manual or automatic mode; saving captured GDV-images for further processing and analysis. The GDV Capture v.1 program works with GDV Camera, GDV+ and GDV Acu Scanner.
Purpose of GDV Capture v.2: calibration of parameters by GDV-images of the test object; static capturing of GDV-images of human fingers; static capturing of series of GDV-images in manual or automatic mode; saving captured GDV-images for their further processing and analysis. The "GDV Capture" v.1 program works with "GDV Compact", "GDV Express" and "GDV Fifth Element". The GDV Capture v.2 program works with GDV Compact, GDV Express and GDV Fifth Element.
Purposes: Creating a model of human energy field on the basis of the topic map with correlation between the glow of separate sectors of human fingers and his biological systems and organs; viewing energy field as an image around human contour; numeric presentation of data in tables and diagrams; calculation of energy field parameters: area, entropy, fractality and symmetry.
Additional possibilities: Viewing a dynamic image of the human energy field obtained by comparing the GDV-image zones corresponding to a biological system or organ and parts of human contour where these biological systems are located; showing the energy field in the zone names display mode, which allows viewing of highlighted body sectors (point the mouse cursor to an energy field sector to view bubble help with the name of the selected zone; press the left mouse button to show the finger with the corresponding zone of the GDV energy field, and this zone will light up); showing energy field in an enhanced mode, which makes it possible to select and study it in detail in the selected scale (2-fold, 4-fold, 6-fold or 8-fold); viewing the energy field mode in three projections (front, left and right side); comparison of the obtained results for several subjects; printing GDV-images of energy field, tables and diagrams.
Analysis of functional state of the subjects versus a practically healthy person; showing the results as circular diagrams divided into sectors related to certain parts of human body (moving the mouse cursor on the plot provides bubble help about the current sector); plotting histograms of integral parameters. The integral area is characterized by three levels: Norm—indicates normal activity of human body and psychic; below the norm—a weakening of functional stability of vital activity processes and psychic; above the norm—an extreme mode of body functioning that can bring to overloading and dysfunction of human systems and organs.
Integral entropy indicates the functioning state of cell, organ or human body: normal entropy characterizes active progress of all reactions and processes of vital activity; an increase of entropy indicates the emergence of new processes leading to cellular or organ activity. A decrease of entropy indicates the inhibition of all redox reactions, reactions of catabolism and anabolism, i.e, switching off many components from the system, cessation of various reactions, disappearance of the field for their development. This state can be observed if there is some pathology present, e.g, during atrophy changes, but also in normal conditions (during sleep). Energy decrease can be observed, e.g., against depletion when there are no transformation products and all reserves have been spent.
Activation Coefficient (AC) indicates the stress level of the human subject, and the presentation of this data is viewed in a table format.
Additional possibilities: Calculation of the subject’s AC level; comparison of diagrams for several subjects; printing GDV-images, histograms tables and diagrams.
Purposes: The functional state body analysis of subjects by separate organs and systems versus a practically healthy person; calculation of numeric parameters (integral area, integral entropy and activation coefficient) for separate organs and systems; building up plots on the basis of the obtained data; visual analysis of GDV-images in sectors referring to the selected organ or system; monitoring of the numeric parameters of the sectors.
Additional possibilities:Comparison of the obtained results for several subjects; printing of GDV-images, plots and tables.
Purposes: Provides a graphic display of the normalized energy value and emotional-physical imbalance of the energy centers of human body, chakras, on the basis of processing of GDV-images of 10 fingers. Calculation of GDV-chakras is based on the idea of the connection of a chakra with the part of the finger to which the corresponding systems of human body are projected:
Muladhara Chakra—the lower part of the second finger, corresponding to the sacral and coccyx plexus.
Swadhisthanna Chakra—the lower part of the fourth finger, corresponding to the sacral plexus and the urogenital system.
Manipura Chakra—the lower part of the third finger, corresponding to the solar plexus, digestive system.
Anahata Chakra—the lower part of the fifth finger, corresponding to the cardiac plexus and the circulatory system
Vishuddha Chakra—the lower part of the first finger, corresponding to the throat zone.
Ajna Chakra—the upper part of the first finger, corresponding to the forehead.
Sahasrara Chakra—the upper part of the fourth finger, corresponding to the cerebral cortex, the entire nervous system.
Further, the Chakra program graphic presentation includes a table containing numeric values of the calculated chakra parameters.
Additional possibilities: The Chakra program also provides views of the results on two types of plots: projection of chakra parameters on the human contour as circles where the diameter corresponds to the normalized energy level and the shift of a circle to the right or to the left to emotional-physical imbalance; display of parameters on an ordinary plot as a line with markers. The chakra number is marked on the horizontal axis and the normalized energy value or emotional-physical imbalance on the vertical one; for each calculated chakra parameter its value, asymmetry and interpretation are the output in correspondence with the Ayurveda concept in Indian medicine; the comparison of the obtained results for several subjects; printing of GDV-images, plots, reports and tables.
Purpose: Viewing and visual comparison of GDV-images of biological and physical subjects.
Additional possibilities: Viewing GDV-images in various noise filtering and pseudo-coloring modes; calculation of parameters of loaded images; presentation of numeric values of GDV-image parameters in a table form; printing of images.

Purpose: The GD.Veda program is based on ancient canons of Ayurvedic and Tibetan medicine combined with the latest achievements in functional diagnostics.
Ayurveda (from Sanskrit "Ayus," meaning "life" and "life principle" or "long life", and "veda," knowledge) is a traditional Indian system of medicine, originated in about 800 BC. Its basic procedures (diagnosis of heart rate and breathing, therapeutic diets, etc.) have become part of medical practice in all countries. Such directions and methods as surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics, pharmacology, and ophthalmology, massage, acupuncture, physiotherapy and dietetics also moved into the modern medical practice. According to the World Health Organization, health is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely absence of disease or infirmity." According to Ayurvedic health, it is a living harmony between the environment, human body and mind.
GD.Veda is designed both for experienced professionals in the field of Oriental and Aryuvedic Medicine and for beginners. At the core of the program is the concept of "tridosha"—that is, physiological imbalance and analysis of energy systems of the body, leading to disease. The GDV diagnostician can provide detailed instructions for the rehabilitation of the patient, as a result of the program. This provides a customized course of treatment, with more precise recommendations.
GD.Veda consists of 3 main modules: Fito, Aroma and Dieta, as well as physiological modules, including a questionnaire and summary of recommendations.
The GD.Veda-Fito module allows you to formulate recommendations on individual lifestyles and characteristics of herbal medicine, on the basis of constitutional features of man and his state of health, estimated by the method of GDV.
GDV-diagnostics data presented in the program "GD.Veda-Fito" in the form of diagrams of three systems of regulation: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. According to the analysis of these systems is determined by the Ayurvedic "constitutional type.” The program downloads all of the existing GDV-patient survey, which allows the user to track the dynamics of the state of the client’s health.
GD.Veda-Aroma allows the user to formulate recommendations for the individual aromatherapy from the data of GDV-diagnostics and concepts of Ayurveda.
GD.Veda-Dieta allows the user to formulate customized recommendations on diet and the use of bio-additives, based on data from the GDV-diagnostics and concepts of Ayurveda.
The program includes a physiological GD.Veda (151-item) questionnaire, which allows the user to customize recommendations for herbal and aromatherapy. This survey elevates the program to the standard medical testing and significantly increases the reliability of the results for each individual patient.
Based on the principles of Ayurveda, estimated imbalance of the human body is calculated. Recommendations are given for life to balance the doshas, with the prevailing imbalance. Recommendations are given in the following areas:
All recommendations are general. The program allows the practitioner to adjust and customize the recommendations for each individual patient.
* In the future, the program will be supplemented by modules on Mineralotherapy ("GD.Veda-Mineral"), procedures ("GD.Veda-Therapy"), and so on.
