Innovative High Resolution Impedance Manometry designed for total esophageal function monitoring.


- Overview

HRM combined with Impedance.

Solar GI HRIM is the new standard for total esophageal function monitoring.

While HRM measures peristalsis, impedance measures the actual bolus movement, making it a very powerful combination. According to the American Journal of Gastroenterology, 51% of patients with Inefficient Esophageal Motility (IEM) have normal bolus transit1.

Currently, the most advanced HRIM system on the market because of developments such as the Chicago Classification criteria, QuickView analysis program, 3D esophageal pressure topography (EPT) and new catheter technology make Solar GI HRIM:

  • Extremely easy to use
  • Procedures more accurate and reliable
  • Data analysis better, simpler and quicker
  • Procedure costs lower

Multiple Upgrade Options Include :

  • Increase in pressure channels from 24 to 36.
  • Change from water-perfused HRM (24-36) to 36 pressure solid-state HRM.
  • 16 Impedance channels (water perfused and solid state).
  • Conventional 4-8 channel ARM or HRAM water perfused or solid state.

+ Clinical Information

High Resolution Impedance Manometry

While HRM measures peristalsis, Impedance measures the actual bolus movement, making it a very powerful combination as 51% of patients with inefficient esophageal motility (IEM) have normal bolus transit. HRIM is expected to be the new standard for total esophageal function monitoring.

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.
