Spiropalm 6MWT is a new device that incorporates a spirometer with a pulse oximeter and ventilation monitor.
During a 6 Minute Walk Test, this compact and lightweight combination can be easily worn by a patient on a harness or a belt to collect real-time data. The resulting report provides clinicians with a cohesive and comprehensive means of evaluating 6-MWT results.
Continuous measurement of SpO2 & HR throughout the walking/exercise period makes the clinician aware of desaturation that may have occured during the 6 minute walk but which was reversed by the end of the test
Measurement of Minute Ventilation (VE) and Breathing Pattern during walking
Measurement of Breathing Reserve (BR) and evaluation of Ventilatory Limitation
Evaluation of Dynamic Hyperinflation with Inspiratory Capacity (IC) measurement
Complete spirometry including FVC, Pre/Post FVC comparison, Bronchial challenge test, MVV and SVC
Internal memory for storing hundreds of tests
Spiropalm Flash Drive (included) provides an alternative for storing reports in pdf format
- Reports are generated by connecting directly to a standard USB printer
- Data Management Software (included) for transferring patient files to a computer and for interfacing with other programs

Additional Spirometry Features:
Real-time Graphs - Simultaneous Flow/Volume loop and time/Volume graph in real-time
Bronchial Challenge Testing - Methacholine, cold air, or exercise can be used to induce bronchospasm and to identify and treat asthma.
- "Bubbles" encourages patients to perform
properly so you have optimal results quickly and easily.
Control Messages - Software-driven messages help the
technician recognize testing errors and validate a maneuver's technical quality.
Alphanumeric Keyboard - Reports can
be personalized with patient data, notes, and a header.
Choice of Prediction Standards - Spiropalm is programmed with a choice of predicted normals, including NHANESIII, Knudson, ITS, Crapo, and other
Economical - Cost effective way to perform diagnostic spirometry using your choice of mouthpiece or bacterial filter.
Choice of Languages - Spiropalm is available in English, Spanish, French, Portugese, Italian, German, Dutch, Chinese (Mandarin), Korean, and Turkish.
- Spiropalm meets or
exceeds ATS standards for accuracy. Its unique sensor design is
not affected by environmental changes. The built-in temperature sensor and
the ability to make BTPS corrections ensure that measurements are exact
for a wide range of flows, with low resistance.
Heart Rate and SpO2 monitoring with
the ability to measure ventilation during exercise.
Compact and lightweight
Spiropalm 6MWT integrates a flow meter seated in a silicone face mask with a Nonin pulse oximeter. A comfortable headgear and harness allow patients to wear the device during walking.
Spiropalm 6MWT is also a diagnostic spirometer
for measuring FVC, Pre-Post
