The Pico software offers some very useful and time-saving features that are not available elsewhere. The software is more comprehensive of any other brand on the UK market.
While all urodynamic systems perform tests some, like the Pico Smart, are easier to use than others.
The Pico systems are unique in allowing individuals to have the automatically generated reports designed in their preferred format.
ICS recommends that the pressure transducers remain at the height of the synphasis pubis during the test. This is normally achieved by physically moving the transducers when the patient’s position is changed. With the Pico Smart this can be accomplished automatically through the software. No other urodynamic system offers this facility.
The Medica software team is constantly working to make improvements and enhance the user experience.
Suggestions for improvements are welcomed
