About Dentsleeve

The Beginning - Sleeve Sensor

Dentsleeve was originally formed in 1993, but the story goes back over 28 years of research and development. Recently acquired by Mui Scientific Inc. and now based in Ontario, Canada, the company is built around the invention of the perfused sleeve sensor by John Dent, M.D., Ph.D. The sleeve sensor is used in evaluations of sphincter function. In contrast to other methods, the sleeve sensor measures pressure continuously and is the only reliable method for measurement of sphincter relaxation. The sleeve provides a more complete picture on which to base a treatment plan. No other device with proven capabilities equivalent to the sleeve has yet been developed.

Silicone Rubber Catheters - Infection Control, Patient Comfort, Long Life

Along with the sleeve sensor, Dentsleeve has pioneered the use of silicone rubber for manometry catheters. Silicone rubber is a durable yet flexible material able to withstand high temperature sterilization processes. In the clinical setting this translates to effective infection control without exposure to harmful chemicals, and unparalleled patient comfort.

Development by Leading Clinicians & Researchers

Dentsleeve's success in developing innovative and technically advanced products is a result of the collaboration between leading researchers at prominent research centres. In particular Professor John Dent M.D., Ph.D. of the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Taher Omari Ph.D.

Evolved Products for Clinical Applications

Today clinicians and patients all over the world benefit from this R & D foundation. Dentsleeve products are designed to provide accurate results, ultimate infection control and patient comfort.


Dentsleeve innovations include:

  • Sleeve sensor - for continuous sphincter measurements

  • 100% silicone rubber catheters - fully autoclavable for best possible sterilisation

  • Micro-manometry - for applications when size is important, for example paediatric applications or high level research studies involving channels in excess of 23 channels.
