What is the difference between the Idiag M360, MediMouse and SpinalMouse?

These three names refer to one and the same product. The MediMouse and the SpinalMouse were renamed on the 1st of March 2018 and are now known as the Idiag M360.

After an Idiag M360 recording, what information is available to me as a patient?

The results contain important clinical information on posture, mobility and stability of the back. The doctor and physiotherapist need this data and use it to prepare the best possible treatment, therapy or holistic health plan for the patient.

What is the operating principle of the Idiag M360?

During the recording, the device records the vertebrae’s distances and positions in the x, y and z planes. This information, combined with known anthropometric data about the vertebral body dimensions, is necessary in order to calculate the relative positions of the sacrum, the vertebral bodies and the angles between them using a complex algorithm.

What do the reference values of the Idiag M360 relate to?

The reference values for patients were determined via standardised recordings from people without back problems and matched to the respective gender and age group. The data acquisition occurs at the Institute for Learning in Motion – Health Promotion (Institut für Bewegtes Lernen – Gesundheitsförderung) in Vienna, Austria, and at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany.

What is the difference between the Idiag STMedical and the Idiag SpiroTiger?

The Idiag STMedical is used in therapy, e.g. for pulmonary, musculoskeletal and neuromuscular diseases. This device enables medical and personal monitoring of training, and allows 4 user profiles to be stored. The Idiag SpiroTiger enables the same respiratory training effect as the Idiag STMedical.

How is the initial bag size determined for the Idiag STMedical and Idiag SpiroTiger?

The bag size equates to around 50% of the previously determined vital capacity. If the determined bag size differs from the standard bag size, the bag is removed accordingly via the bag clamp. Here, the width of an index finger corresponds to around 0.2 litres.

How do the Idiag STMedical and Idiag SpiroTiger work?

In order to strengthen the respiratory muscles, stronger breathing is necessary. Here, it is important to keep the CO₂ constant, as strong respiratory elimination of CO₂ can cause dizziness (hyperventilation). Rebreathing of the CO₂-enriched air from the bag enables the CO₂ content to be kept within normal limits. Opening the valve causes additional O₂ from the external air to be mixed with the respiratory air. Thus, this functional principle of normocapnic hyperpnoea means more breathing, while the CO₂ content is kept within normal limits.

Does basic insurance cover the costs of the Idiag STMedical?

If prescribed by a doctor, the respiratory therapy device Idiag STMedical is covered by health insurers’ basic insurance as of the 1st of January 2012 in Switzerland. The Idiag STMedical is either prescribed by the doctor, to be hired for three months, or by the pulmonologist, for purchase. The patients are instructed and supervised by medical professionals from an accredited Idiag Respiration Center.
