Laborie Unveils Solar Compact System and Solar Anorectal Manometry Catheter for Enhanced Gastrointestinal Diagnostics

21 May 2024

Laborie Medical Technologies is excited to introduce its latest advancements in diagnostic and therapeutic medical technology: the Solar Compact System and Solar Anorectal Manometry Catheter.

These cutting-edge devices represent a significant leap forward in diagnosing defecatory disorders and pelvic-floor dysfunction related to constipation and fecal incontinence by measuring static and dynamic pressures in the lower gastrointestinal tract.

Anorectal manometry, a vital medical test for evaluating pressures in the anus and rectum, now benefits from the Solar Catheter, the first disposable high-resolution anorectal manometry catheter available.

Featuring ten channels for air-charged measurements, this disposable tool seamlessly integrates with the reusable Solar Charger, ensuring precise pressure readings in the lower gastrointestinal tract.

The Solar Compact System, tailored for office use, offers a portable and cost-effective solution. It simplifies the process of conducting pharyngeal, esophageal, and anorectal motility investigations, incorporating biofeedback mechanisms and accommodating both air-charged and solid-state catheters.

With its versatile diagnostic capabilities, the Solar Compact System stands out for its adaptability and effectiveness in diagnosing defecatory disorders.

Vice President and General Manager of Laborie's Gastroenterology Business Unit, emphasized the significance of these innovations: "The Solar Compact System and Solar Catheter were meticulously designed for portability, featuring single-use HRAM catheters that eliminate the need for sterilization, unlike their solid-state reusable counterparts.

At Laborie, our core focus is on providing solutions that enhance clinical value, improve patient outcomes, and elevate the patient experience."

Laborie's software adheres to the International Anorectal Physiology Working Group (IAPWG) protocol, ensuring alignment with industry guidelines. Automated analysis based on the London Classification streamlines interpretation, while the QuickView Analysis software offers intuitive functionality for precise data interpretation.

Seamless connectivity, facilitated by HL7 compatibility and network availability, enables effortless data sharing and integration into existing systems.

The software offers customizable procedures and reports, providing tailored solutions to meet the unique needs of healthcare providers and their patients.
