The new generation Vitalograph ALPHA Touch is an easy-to-use, lightweight desktop spirometer that offers the benefits of portability, data integration and a built-in printer. The ALPHA Touch features a precise and robust Fleisch pneumotachograph and a simple icon driven menu, plus a large, high-resolution colour touch-screen and storage capacity for 10,000 subjects.

Manual entry of subject data is optional as ALPHA Touch automatically copies all subject data from Spirotrac—saving time and eliminating data entry errors.
