The Experience

 Working with the Body Box is the ultimate pulmonary function testing experience. The instrument cabins are superbly crafted using the finest aluminum extrusion techniques and precision engineering of the glass doors, seals, and patient valving. The products are hand crafted with the pride and skill that is the heritage of Europe’s finest engineering workshops. The all-round glass panel enclosure provides space, comfort, and reassurance to subjects normally wary of being in a closed space.

With our heritage of working with research centers and teaching hospitals, the Body Box offers a wide range of testing capability. The design provides flexibility in preferences of testing protocols. For example, the single breath diffusion option allows for testing with an inspiratory demand valve, or with an inspiratory bag reservoir. It can offer fast response infrared gas analysis for rapid DLCO measurements or traditional techniques using fuel cell CO technology.

The genius and craft of the valving design makes such versatility possible. The plethysmograph cabin, electronics, and patient valve assembly have all been carefully designed to suit tests on subjects ranging from very small children to large adults. The patient valve can be simply adjusted to ensure comfort and proper testing posture. The shutter valve is quiet and efficient. It utilizes compressed gas to gain the efficiency and reliability of pneumatic sealing over thousands of operations.

 Patients can easily exit the cabin should they feel uncomfortable, and there is two-way communication for reassurance and testing instruction. The ComPAS software design focuses technician attention on the patient. The tests are carried out quickly with the least inconvenience or patient concern. The cabin interior is a bright, comfortable, and reassuring environment!

ComPas & Body Box

 Too many pulmonary function instruments in today’s competitive market are designed with obsolescence in mind. Not so with any of the Morgan Scientific or MediSoft products! It is not unusual for our systems to operate for 15 years or more. The cost of maintaining our magnificently engineered Body Box is far less than other manufacturers.

Not only is the cost of service negligible, but the costs of testing supplies are also far less than alternative systems.

For DLCO studies, only a single cylinder of diffusion gas is required. A typical ‘H’ cylinder will allow approximately 300 complete PFT studies to be completed.

The ComPAS software matches the excellence of the Body Box hardware. For many customers, it is the extension of our program first introduced in 1980. Throughout the evolution of Morgan Scientific software, each new edition has provided full conversion of patient data.

ComPAS guides each test maneuver with clear, helpful screens. From the morning’s calibration to complete testing, the software guides, instructs, and assists in assurance of high quality testing. Using ComPAS gives the operator a wise, helpful colleague sitting by their side!
