Pulmonary Waveform Generator: PWG-33 and PWG-33BT

Pulmonary waveform generator is the most essential equipment for developing and testing spirometers and other flow/volume measuring devices.
PWG-33 is the ideal test equipment for R&D companies, for manufacturers and for authorized test laboratories as well.
PWG-33 has incomparable accuracy and fidelity in generating waveforms.
PWG-33 provides the highest peakflow with the fastest acceleration it is the real market leader in all aspects.
PWG-33BT provides full BTPS simulation for all types of exhaled curves
