Research Triangle Park, NC, USA - June 26, 2007
SunTech Medical announced today that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the SunTech 247™ Diagnostic Station – a modular device that will provide manual and automated blood pressure as well as optional temperature and SpO2 measurements. The SunTech 247™ will launch into global distribution beginning in August.
SunTech Medical, known for its popular Tango+ automated blood pressure monitor for exercise stress testing, has designed the SunTech 247™ as a clinical-grade BP device that bridges the gap between manual sphygmomanometers and vital signs devices.
"The SunTech 247™ Diagnostic Station is the first clinical grade product to offer automated BP measurement with a manual back-up mode, making it a very reliable BP device for healthcare providers," stated Dayn McBee, CEO. "Even the best oscillometric monitors may occasionally fail to get a BP reading. Now; however, we provide a simple way to get an accurate reading even in difficult measurement situations."
The SunTech 247™ is offered as an affordable replacement for mechanical blood pressure gauges. The modular plug-and-play design allows the clinician to add additional temperature and pulse oximetry parameters at a later time, if needed. Flexible mounting systems include wall, table-top, and mobile stand configurations.
SunTech Medical's OEM blood pressure technology is used by many of the world's leading patient monitoring and defibrillator equipment manufacturers. Offerings include algorithms for particular patient environments and conditions including patient transport (ambulance, helicopter, or gurney), patient motion (tremors and spasms) and specific patient populations (dialysis, neo-natal, pediatric, bariatric, or veterinarian). SunTech's finished goods solutions include automated blood pressure monitors for stress and exercise testing, our 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitor and general and specialized blood pressure cuffs.
