Andromeda is a leading German medical engineering company specialising in the development and manufacturing of innovative urodynamic measurement systems and consumables. 

A pioneering company, Andromeda is one of the world’s leading urodynamics manufacturers, developing high-quality measurement devices for urodynamic application. Innovation plays a key role in Andromeda’s international reputation. The ‘Ellipse Chair’, the world’s first fully integrated measuring station, and the new minimally invasive ‘CLP’ diagnostic technique confirm Andromeda’s leading position in urodynamics. With ‘Helix’, Andromeda has succeeded in developing a compact, fully fledged urodynamics system capable of achieving high-quality, reproducible measurement results while at the same time meeting current demands for cost efficiency and efficient diagnosis.

Quick, precise and efficient diagnosis

Ellipse can be progressively extended in its use by combining standard components with application-specific assemblies. Updates covering new analysis methods are easily integrated into the system, ensuring its long-term utility.

Benefits at a glance:

  • High-quality reproducible analyses
  • Brief and comfortable examinations
  • Cost-effective and easy to operate
  • Individual system configuration

Ellipse Chair – The fully integrated urodynamic measurement system

Maximum precision and ergonomic comfort in urodynamics

All analysis functions are permanently installed in the urogynaecological chair, including the flow system, catheter puller and pressure transducers. These move to follow any alterations to the position of the chair. The Ellipse Chair allows the entire range of urodynamic analyses to be completed in one sitting.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Measurement in a seated, lying or standing position
  • Reproducible high-quality measurement results
  • Minimisation of artefacts
  • More relaxed examination procedure for the patient
  • Brief, comfortable and cost-efficient examinations
  • Short set-up and reconfiguration
  • Multi-purpose use through optional features



Urodynamics - reliable, flexible and economical

The Helix can manage the entire spectrum of urodynamic measurements combined with simple, quick and effective operation. Clinicians can now delegate most of the work involved in preparing the urodynamic procedure and automatic analysis of the results saves time, money and effort. Helix users are able to modify the automatic analysis at the touch of a button and print the results

Additional advantages:

  • Quick and easy to set-up

  • High quality measurement results

  • Low capital investment costs

  • Network Integration capabilities

  • Wireless functionality

The Helix has been designed to maximise efficiency, minimise costs and simplify the urodynamic process to allow the clinician to focus their attention on the patient.
