SunTech Medical, Inc., the world leader in motion-tolerant, non-invasive blood pressure monitoring products and technology announces the release of the most comprehensive line of blood pressure cuffs available.

Recognizing that current standards for blood pressure cuffs are not wholly adequate for all patient populations, SunTech Medical's extensive family of blood pressure cuffs are specifically designed for patient comfort and ease of use. In general use and specialty environments, including stress testing, patient monitoring and extended wear conditions, these cuff designs outperform all other cuffs currently available. Difficult large circumference, short arms are accommodated. The cuffs are proven to be accurate, reliable, and economical. The high quality, latex free cuffs offer the perfect complement to the blood pressure devices from a variety of manufacturers and feature easily removable bladders for routine washing and disinfecting. The innovative designs are consistent with the Council Directive 93/42/EEC Medical Devices Directive and the recommendations of AAMI SP10:2002.

SunTech provides the following variety of cuff styles for a broad array of clinical requirements.

The Orbit™ and Orbit-K™ offer innovative, integral sleeve design and provide unmatched patient comfort for extended wear periods. The soft, supple sleeve gently hugs the arm securing the cuff in place. This technology aids in obtaining uninterrupted measurements even on the most active patient. The Orbit-K™ features built in microphone placement providing an ideal listening position for cardiac stress measurement.

SunTech's Eclipse™ D-Ring Cuffs are the perfect choice for home monitoring, self-application environments and anywhere that speed and convenience are important. Cuff positioning is simplified by unique design features that significantly reduce the possibility of improper placement.

SunTech also features neonate and All Purpose cuffs. Full color private labeling is available to SunTech's OEM partners with a minimum order of 500 cuffs annually. All blood pressure cuffs are available for order this month.
