Medical Device Creates New Product Category
Morrisville, NC, USA - November 05, 2007
SunTech Medical, a leader in blood pressure technology and development for the past twenty years, is proud to announce the release of the SunTech 247™ Diagnostic Station. This innovative new medical device bridges the gap in price and capability between manual blood pressure gauges and vital signs monitors. It is available in the US exclusively through IMCO and NDC members and worldwide through SunTech authorized distributors.
Don Wildmon, VP of Sales states, "The SunTech 247™ Diagnostic Station establishes a whole new product category in medical devices. Clinicians really like the modular design that allows them to start out with a blood pressure device and later to upgrade to other vital signs parameters as needed."
The new SunTech® 247™ Diagnostic Station combines the efficiency of an automated monitor with the convenience of a manual mode that allows the nurse or physician to take a blood pressure reading with a stethoscope if ever needed.
"This is the most positive new product reception that I have seen in my 30 years in the medical device industry," states Dr. Edward Wright, VP of Marketing and Business Development. "I am really excited about this new product line and our venture with branded product into global distribution channels."
The SunTech 247's modular design allows the addition of temperature and SpO2 modules and is available in a variety of mounting configurations including wall, table or mobile stand.
SunTech stands behind its belief in better healthcare through superior engineering. Dayn McBee, CEO of SunTech Medical explains, "As the adoption of healthcare information technology increases, the need to upgrade from manual to digital instruments becomes increasingly stronger. We are striving to fill the need for more affordable, flexible, and expandable technology in order to decrease the cost of healthcare and to provide greater ease of use to the clinician."
