The Vitalograph Alpha Spirometer, a new spirometer and printer from Vitalograph Inc, is now available in the United States, according to a company news release.
The next-generation Vitalograph Alpha Spirometer with integrated printer, is a lightweight, highly-portable, all-in-one desktop spirometer for accurate respiratory diagnosis of both adult and pediatric patients. Users can capture reliable test results immediately with Alpha’s Fleisch measuring technology, which is extremely accurate and stable over time.
“Designed for testing on the go, remotely, or in a clinic, the Alpha is the ultimate desktop spirometry solution,” Vitalograph says. The device is compliant with 2019 ATS/ERS spirometry guidelines, which ensures that all respiratory diagnostics carried out are in line with international standards for accuracy and reporting.
“It is very exciting and great timing to have another next generation product available just as many healthcare sites are looking to reopen spirometry testing in the wake of the pandemic,” said Troy Pridgeon, Vitalograph’s executive vice president of Sales & Operations for North America. “COVID has kept patients with lung diseases and those that work around known respiratory hazards untested for as long as two years in some cases. The Alpha is a great solution to catch that up and help ensure that one health crisis doesn’t create another.”
