THE FUTURE OF LUNG FUNCTION TESTING

Technology

Tidal Breathing

Our test is done during tidal breathing, also known as quiet breathing, without the need to blow forcefully, making it ideal for people with respiratory symptoms and small children

No Cooperation

Our lung function test does not require any special instructions or breathing maneuvers. The test is completely automated and can be performed on all ages, including neonates

Airway Resistance (Raw)

We measure Airway-Resistance, the most physically accurate parameter for measuring airway obstructions and twice as sensitive as FEV1

Non Invasive

NE Field’s testing method is non invasive and only requires breathing through our device via disposable mouthpiece

Overview

NE Field Diagnostics Ltd. was established in 2015 to develop and commercialize an innovative technology for pulmonary function testing and monitoring. After extensive research and consulting with leading experts in the field of pulmonology, we understood that the only way to accurately measure lung functions is to find a way to measure alveolar pressure and by that calculate Airway-Resistance and respiratory compliance. These are two of the most important parameters when diagnosing pulmonary diseases and also in monitor chronic respiratory symptoms. NE Field has done precisely that! What was only possible in a plethysmograph (body-box) is now possible in a hand-held device connected to you smart-phone. Thanks to our patented device, method and algorithm.
