Medspira, Minneapolis, MN, received FDA clearance for their new anorectal manometry system, the mcompass, a motility testing device that features a disposable catheter with multiple balloons that adjusts to individual patient anatomy. A wireless three-button portable manometer supports simple catheter operation, according to the company. The device uses a 5-channel measurement catheter, comprising a central rectal balloon and 4 radial anal canal balloons at 90 degree relative positioning. The balloons can be adjusted independently of each other. The 20 mm long anal canal balloons enable full anal canal measurements.
The device’s tablet PC workstation features easy-to-use software and data can be presented in real time on the tablet. With the built-in WiFi for emailing of full digital encrypted results it is also easy to consult appropriate specialists as needed.
