Dipha+ enables scientific research in the respiratory field on patients ranging from preterm infants up to adults. It provides accurate, reliable and user-friendly surface EMG, sEMG, measurements of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles and data analysis. Over 50 international scientific publications were supported by the use of our technology.

Dipha+ is typically used in the following areas:

  • Ventilation
  • Respiratory physiology
  • Anesthesiology
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Cystic Fibrosis

Rimensberger“I believe that measuring respiratory EMG activity of patients creates new possibilities to optimise and personalise treatment in the neonatal and paediatric care”

Prof. dr. P. Rimensberger, director of the neonatal and pediatric ICU of University Hospitals of Geneva.
