Body Plethysmography
QBox: Gold Standard lung volumes measurement by body plethysmography

Accuracy and simplicity for the new benchmark in body plethysmography

  • All-in-one solution for Lung Volumes, Airways Resistance, Spirometry and Respiratory Mechanics (MIP/MEP, PO.1)
  • Optional DLCO module for single-breath, intra-breath and membrane lung diffusion capacity
  • Large cabin (873 liters) provides comfort while maintaining high sensitivity to volume changes
  • Perform spirometry and DLCO either inside or outside cabin
  • Perform all tests with a single manoeuvre (TGV, sRAW, SVC, IC)
  • Featuring OMNIA, powerful, easy-to-use software with touch screen user interface


  • Q-BoxThe Q-Box is the new generation body-box from COSMED for Gold Standard thoracic gas volume measurements. The measurement of Static Lung Volumes (TLC, RV, ITGV) and Airway Resistance and Conductance (RAW, GAW) through body plethysmography technique guarantee highly accurate results and has become a necessity for any high-level laboratory of respiratory pathophysiology. Latest hardware design and advanced software features make the Q-Box standout from the compatition.
