MIR Minispir 2 Spirometer
PC-based spirometer for complete respiratory analysis
The MIR Minispir 2 turbine spirometer is your respiratory laboratory in miniature. This compact but powerful device is connected via PC to WinspiroPRO® high performance software via an integrated USB port.
MIR technology is created by a Red Dot Award winning Italian-based design team. MIR is responsible for a range of advanced and internationally recognised spirometry solutions which have been designed and manufactured for use by medical practitioners and researchers for over twenty years.
Zone Medical currently supplies seven spirometry models: the MIR Spirolab 4 Desktop, MIR Spirobank 2 Basic, MIR Spirobank 2 Smart, MIR Spirobank 2 Advanced, MIR Smart One Personal Peak Flow Meter, MIR Spirodoc and the MIR Minispir II. This compact but intuitive model boasts advanced test interpretation with over thirty spirometry parameters.
Who is it for?
The MIR Minispir 2 spirometer is particularly valuable to general practitioners, paediatric departments, pulmonologists, allergists, occupational and sports medicine practitioners, and cardiologists who wish to evaluate and follow their patients both in a clinical setting and from the patient’s home. This model is also the perfect solution for clinical trials where long-term and highly specific data can be gathered from multiple subjects.
Minispir spirometer use complies with the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) for two items: #11505 and #11506. These recently created or amended items encourage the use of best-practice spirometry in general practice.
The MIR Minispir 2 spirometer is extremely simple to use. Respiratory exacerbations in the home setting are often forgotten and unreported; through lung function testing in the comfort of one’s own home, general practitioners and specialists can access a complete set of data. For the patient, this means improved outcome. Costs per test remain low thanks to the use of disposable turbines. In addition, patients play a more active role in their respiratory health and also avoid the inconvenience of excessive consultations.
Paediatric populations are quickly educated in spirometer use through the MIR-patented ‘incentivator’. Colourful on-screen animations engage the younger patient and encourage correct technique, producing accurate results in a notoriously difficult-to-measure group.

Why the MIR Minispir 2 spirometer
FVC, FEV1, FEV1/FVC, FEV1/VC, PEF, FEF25, FEF50, FEF75, FEF25-75,Lung age, Extrapolated volume, FET, FEV3, FEV3/FVC, FEV6, FEV1/FEV6, FIVC, FIV1, FIV1/FIVC, PIF, VC, IVC, IC, ERV, Rf, VE, VT, tI, tE, VT/tI, tE/tTOT, MVV.
Real Time Flow/Volume loops and Volume/Time curves allow for PRE/POST comparison, particularly of use in bronchodilator therapy evaluations.
The Minispir spirometer is ATS compliant and supports the NHANES III and GLI standards. This model improves patient compliance through incentive systems and provides automatic spirometry interpretation with alert messaging. The MIR Minispir 2 is therefore ideal for both health care and home settings.

Paediatric Incentive Animations
The use of a system patented by MIR allows you to view an “incentivator” directly on the screen, which is helpful to improve patient compliance during a Spirometry test. This feature is especially useful in outpatients’ primary care.
