Thorasys offers portable, easy-to-use point-of-care pulmonary function diagnostic devices that provide clinically relevant information on patients ranging from infants to the elderly, and in settings ranging from pulmonary function testing (PFT) labs to physician offices and ultimately to patients’ homes.
Why we invested
Spirometry tests are demanding and sometimes inconvenient, making compliance difficult, especially for children and the elderly. In comparison, the oscillometry technique is effortless for the patient and allows more information to be accumulated about the airway, especially the small peripheral airways, which is not possible with the spirometry technique. Thorasys’ solution will be critically important with the long COVID to help diagnose airway compromise.
