Software, Physiologic Analysis, Peristaltic Motility
Definition : Physiologic analysis software designed to operate computerized peristaltic motility (i.e., the smooth movement of some part of the digestive tract) analyzers, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of peristaltic motility analyzers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing peristaltic motility (e.g., pressure, pH) data, and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Peristaltic motility analyzer software is not usually available separate from the analyzer but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the analyzer. Dedicated peristaltic motility analyzer software intended for the complete gastrointestinal tract as well as software used only for assessment of motility in the esophagus and/or colon/rectum is also available.
