BRS-Bulbocavernosus Reflex Systems

This system and method is disclosed for measuring muscle reflexes (e.g., a bulbocavernosus reflex) as a tool for identifying/diagnosing dysfunctions (e.g., spinal cord abnormalities, bladder voiding dysfunction, and sexual organ dysfunction) non-invasively by using mechanical stimulation. The system and method includes a probe having a predetermined patient contacting portion, wherein when the contacting portion is moved into contact with a particular area of the patient (e.g., the patient's genitals), the contact induces a muscle reflex.

The probe detects the pressure resulting from the contacting portion being abruptly and forcibly brought into contact with the particular area. Such detection is used to electronically initiate capture of electrical responses from a plurality of electrodes placed on the patient's skin in proximity to the particular area. Such electrical responses are processed to determine characteristics of the patient's reflexes of one or more muscles adjacent to the electrodes.

SmartPill Capsule-Based GI Testing

This is a crucial test in evaluating patients with gastrointestinal symptoms such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bloating, nausea, abdominal pain, constipation, and fullness.

smartpil photoIt is pain-free and less invasive than most other GI procedures. Once the capsule is ingested, this device collects important information such as pressure, PH and temperature and transmits this data to a receiver the patient wears on a belt for a period of four days.

The physician then downloads the input to his computer and reviews the test results with the patient. This greatly facilitates the patient’s diagnosis and treatment plan without any discomfort or disruption of normal activities for the patient.
