BODY PLETHYSMOGRAPHY

BODYSTIK

The comfortable bodyplethysmograph

The Bodystik optimizes patient comfort and procedures

The Bodystik full body plethysmograph is designed with comfort in mind. Comfort of both, patients and users. Incorporating a sturdy swing-out-chair, patients with restricted mobility are able to access the box in comfort, this design also makes assisting patients with restricted mobility easier for the user.

The fully height adjustable arm is adjusted electronically via a simple and intuitive control panel, on the outside of the cabin, allowing for small adjustments even when the cabin door is closed. This compact electronic arm helps to increase the useable internal space of the Bodystik again adding to patient comfort.

The five large tempered safety glass windows of the Bodystik allow the patient a good view of the user during the test and so add to patient comfort under test conditions. The large glass surfaces help to reduce non compliance from patients who otherwise would not want to enter a body box.

Patient, user Communication is via an intercom system with a microphone situated in the control panel and loudspeakers inside the Bodystik clear instructions can be given to the patient throughout the test procedure.  The powerful BLUE CHERRY® software suite is enabled with functions that support the performance and control of breathing, thus the user is able to easily monitor and support the patient during testing. Bodystik optimises workflow and fits seamlessly into the daily clinical routines
