Biofeedback is a technique by which 'bio' logical information about a normally unconscious physiological process is 'fed' back to the patient as a visual or auditory signal. All Solar systems can offer a Biofeedback option where signals from the lower GI tract and pelvic floor muscles are measured and displayed real-time to the patient. Biofeedback training develops a beneficial and conscious control over these body processes.
Besides the normal screen with investigation curves and parameters, MMS offers special animations and scenes for pediatrics and adults such as a sea world, forest or a simple background with a challenge where obstacles have to be passed.
Biofeedback studies can be performed on Pressure and EMG or the combination of the 2 signals. The results of each Biofeedback study are stored in the Solar GI database together with other pelvic floor investigations done on the same patient. One database, one system for both GI Manometry and Biofeedback studies.
