What Vitalograph Offer

We work to the specific requirements of your study needs, with a centralised, fully adaptable spirometry system. Clinicians can capture pulmonary function testing data and measure the impact of the fibrosis in clinical trial subjects, and resting spirometry and gas transfer measurements can be entered on our system, and included as part of the central database.

We offer a range of centralised pulmonary function testing (PFT) endpoints and customisable reports for data monitoring and analysis, and quick and easy access to subject matter experts throughout the life of your study.

We provide you with:

  • eCOA
  • Over-read 360 (QA Review) for spirometry and DLCO providing prompt feedback to sites, to improve data quality.
  • The 6MWT to assess subject’s functional capability.
  • Home monitoring patient reported outcome questionnaires and spirometry measurements on our handheld In2itiveTM eDiary, e.g. EQ-5D-5L, SGRQ.
  • Customisable reports for data monitoring and analysis.
  • Access to subject matter experts throughout the life of your study.
  • Clinical trial devices and software.
  • Professional and dedicated study services.
