The Alpha Wireless pH Monitoring System is the newest advance in ambulatory reflux monitoring. The system comprises of a small pH Capsule with delivery device, data recorder, calibration stand and analysis software.
Unlike conventional pH monitoring using trans-nasal catheters, patients are less aware of the procedure and more likely to maintain their regular lifestyle, activities and diet providing the clinician with a more realistic profile of the frequency and severity of the acid reflux.
Advantages of the Alpha Wireless pH Monitoring System include:
• Simple capsule deployment, using 3 slide switches, straightforward with no failure of detachment from delivery system.
• Improved data integrity (data is temporarily stored in capsule before transmission to data recorder)
• Up to 96 hour recording allowing for 4 full days of acid detection
