Beyond Spirometry Try Oscillometry Now!
The tremoflo® C-100 Airwave Oscillometry System™ (AOS System) is a sophisticated, compact device which provides quantitative information on both large and small airway function. Measurements from the tremoflo® are fast and easy to obtain, requiring only quiet breathing from the patient.
The tremoflo® C-100 involves little operator–patient coordination. This simple handheld device superimposes a gentle oscillatory wave on the patient’s normal breathing to provide several key outcome parameters of respiratory mechanics.
THORASYS has an exciting software solution to complement the same high standards as our hardware. With technology that is sensitive to small airway function, users can obtain and access readings of a patient's pulmonary function.
The tremoflo® software is easy to use and guides operators through the step-by-step procedures. It plots patient values on easy to interpret green-yellow-red gauge scales that visually indicate a patient’s deviation from normal reference values or z-scores. It also provides easy calibration which typically takes less than a minute once a day before usage.
THORASYS aims to provide an integrated digital platform for the full spectrum of our products and users, including researchers, clinicians, and patients.
How does Oscillometry compare with Spirometry?
Despite the wide clinical acceptance of Spirometry, there are a number of obstacles and shortcomings surrounding its use for patient assessment and diagnosis. In contrast, Oscillometry is a novel and complementary technique to assess pulmonary function during quiet, tidal breathing that requires minimal patient effort and coordination.

"We chose to buy the tremoflo for many reasons. The software and display were intuitive. Performance was reliable. Support from the company was excellent".
"I find the tremoflo easy to use for both myself and my patients. All patients have to do is breathe normally ; they do not have to perform any special manoeuvres. You get results in minutes and the report is easy to read".
"We bought our second unit a few years later to evaluate lung function in remote communities in northern Alberta. These units have travelled thousands of miles with my research team over the years and tested thousands of subjects. They are as reliable now as they were on day 1".
"Lung function testing on younger children is a much more agreeable experience. Since the child only has to do normal tidal breathing there is rarely issue as to whether or not the test has been performed properly".
