Solar Neuro Module

Neurophysiological assessments of pelvic floor dysfunction.

Solar Neuro Module

- Overview

The Solar Neuro Module conducts neurophysiological assessments of pelvic floor dysfunction on the same systems used for anorectal manometry and urodynamic testing. With a set of predefined neuro-physiological tests for assessing pelvic floor disorders, the Solar Neuro Module will be familiar to those already acquainted with the state-of-the-art Solar diagnostic testing system. As a result, you can use the same patient database.

The Solar Neuro Module studies the motor innervations of the sphincters and the pelvic floor, as well as the sensory innervation of the pelvic structure. Additional measurement programs available:

  • Free Run EMG
  • Pudendal Nerve Stimulation
  • Motor Nerve Conduction
  • Sacral Reflex


LABORIE offers a complete range of neuro-diagnostic solutions. Modules complementary to the Solar GI family (Solar GI, Solar GI Compact, Solar GI HRAM) and the Solar and Nexam Pro Urodynamic Systems are:

  • 1 channel High speed EMG
  • 2 channels High-speed EMG
  • 1 channel High-speed EMG, Stimulation programs
  • 2 channels High-speed EMG, Stimulation programs

Some LABORIE products may not be available in certain regions.

+ Benefits

Advanced Functionality:

  • Free Run EMG– recording of electrical potentials generated by depolarization of the striated muscles involved in the active continence mechanism
  • Pudendal Nerve Stimulation– common and simple study that measures the latency through a direct reflex between stimulator site and recording site
  • Motor Nerve Conduction– measures the nerve conduction velocity of the dorsal nerve of the penis
  • Sacral Reflex- offers stimulation of the dorsal nerve of the penis or clitoris and records reflexes via the brain taken from pelvic floor muscle structures.

+ Specifications

The Solar Neuro system can be used as dedicated system (with U2M module) or in combination with the LABORIE Solar, Solar GI and Nexus Pro measurement systems.

Procedure Type: Neurophysiological Assessments

Computer Type: Windows 7 or Windows 8

Power: Digital Cable connected to U2M Module

+ Clinical Information

Clinical Info Diagram-GI- Neuro ModulePudendal Nerve Stimulation

In the diagnosis of micturition and pelvic floor disorders, common anorectal, pelvic floor and urodynamic investigations are combined with studies to investigate neurological abnormalities. Neurological studies can greatly improve the quality of the diagnosis.

Pudendal Nerve Stimulation (PNS) or Pudendal Nerve Terminal Motor Latency (PNTML) has diagnostic and prognostic value in the care of patients suffering from fecal incontinence or pelvic floor dysfunction, especially when it is important to identify and quantify the nature of the neuromuscular injury.

PNS is a common and simple study that measures the latency through a direct reflex between stimulator site and recording site. The St. Marks probe is used for latency measurement between stimulator site and recording site (anal sphincter). Pudendal nerve conduction measures the reflex via the brain. PNS can also be used for urinary incontinence studies when the sphincter is stretched after childbirth.

LABORIE is passionate about bringing freedom and dignity to patients suffering from gastroenterological diseases and disorders through innovation in diagnostic and treatment options. We work with leading clinician-researchers and local universities to incorporate the most recent advancements and technical knowledge into our products while reflecting practical realities of the typical GI clinic.
