Cosmed Spiropalm Hand-held Spirometer 6 Minute Walk Test

Product Description

Spiroplam 6MWT is a new medical device designed by COSMED incorporating the latest design for portable spirometry and a unique tool for the standardized “Six-Minute Walk Test“ (6MWT). The versatility of the Spiropalm 6MWT allows a new way of measuring and reporting results for the Six-Minute Walk Test.

No more clipboards, stopwatches, lap counters or non integrated pulse oximeters. The Spiropalm 6MWT provides the customer with a complete testing package with an integrated pulse oximeter, along with the ability to measure ventilation during the test. With the integration of the pulse oximeter the technician will be able to monitor SpO2 during the Six-Minute Walk Test, but also to provide a complete O2 saturation report for oxygen prescription.


– Real time testing for the standardized 6MWT (Six-Minute Walk Test)
– Measurement of minute Ventilation (VE) and Breathing Pattern during walking, Breathing Reserve (BR) with ventilation limitation statement.
– HR and SpO2 monitoring by Nonin technology.
– Evaluation of Dynamic Hyperinflation, with the measurement of Inspiratory Capacity.
– USB connection for external printer and PC software for data management.
