Body Plethysmograph

PowerCube® Body+

The New Standard

The body plethysmography is a very sensitive lung measurement used to detect complex or mixed lung pathology that might be missed with conventional pulmonary function tests. The body box makes it easy to detect the whole lung volume including the thoraic gas volume. It also determines the airway resistance, which makes the diagnosis of specific disorders fast and simple.
The new GANSHORN body plethysmograph PowerCube Body+ is the result of decades of our experience in constructing body plethysmographs whilst using the latest technology.

Upmost long-term stability in conjunction with our new analysis algorithms enables you to initially differentiate between asthma, COPD, restriction or any combination of these disorders just by looking at the shape of the curve. Unlike conventional, basic systems the resistance loops will not be automatically closed but are corrected for BTPS according to the ambient conditions on a breath-by-breath basis.

The PowerCube Body+ is the first body cabin on the market

to use ultrasonic flow measurement as standard

that is calibration free

to have an easily adjustable patient interface

to offer a choice of either a broad bench seat (max. 160 kg) or a height-adjustable swivel chair (max. 120 kg)

with automatic and simultaneous calibration of both the cabin and the mouth pressure at three different frequencies

that offers a BodyLiveCal to test your TGV

with ceiling lighting that can illuminate in different colours, including white

with LEDs indicating the locked state of the door
