LABORIE introduces GOBY Compact mobile urodynamics system

Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, October 6, 2010 – LABORIE, a leading manufacturer of diagnostic and treatment equipment for incontinence, will introduce its new GOBY product, the first ever modular and wireless urodynamic system that can be transported in a carry-on suitcase for assessing bladder and urethra health, at MEDICA 2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany, November 17-20.

Visitors to the world’s largest annual medical trade fair will have an opportunity to observe the GOBY system that delivers more comprehensive, yet simpler and cleaner urodynamic studies. By eliminating the cables binding the patient to traditional diagnostic equipment, the GOBY enables healthcare professionals to perform urodynamic tests reproducing real life scenarios when a patient leaks. During the use, diagnostic catheters are only tethered to a patient, as oppose to stationary equipment, providing for a cleaner test set-up with less troubleshooting.

This innovative urodynamic device uses Bluetooth wireless communication between its modules and enables users to customize the GOBY to suit their own practice. GOBY system can be secured to a pole, examination chair, table, or cart, therefore optimizing patient examination conditions and procedure room space.

“For patients suffering incontinence, GOBY is providing a new benchmark in urodynamic studies, giving them greater freedom and more comfort” said Arnaud Mejean, Vice-President of Global Marketing at LABORIE. “Healthcare professionals can benefit from this breakthrough innovation by performing new and accurate stress maneuvers to easily and better assess real life pelvic floor disorders”

As the market leader in urodynamics, LABORIE continually builds upon its extensive and innovative portfolio and is now actively seeking business partners and potential distributors.
