Biosign supports Heart & Stroke Foundation during Heart Month
/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES/
TORONTO, Feb. 5, 2014 /CNW/ - Biosign Technologies Inc. (TSXV: BIO) ("Biosign" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Biosign will once again support the Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation during "Heart Month".
Specifically, the Company will donate 5% of the net proceeds from each enrollment in the Heart Friendly™ Practice Program to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario. Additionally, Heart Friendly™ clinicians will be able to distribute timely information from the Heart & Stroke Foundation to their patients along with a Heart Friendly™ Health Report, powered by Biosign.
Biosign offers the Heart Friendly™ Practice program to a variety of Allied Health clinics, including dentists, naturopaths and physiotherapy clinics. Practitioners who enroll in the Heart Friendly™ program typically purchase a Biosign Pulsewave® monitor for each exam room or dental hygiene station, and then also pay a monthly or annual fee for Biosign's Cloud Diagnostics® readings and a free, printable Heart Friendly™ Health Report that they can print for each patient to take home. Clinicians have commented that the Heart Friendly™ program gives them an additional valuable service to offer their patients, helps them differentiate their practice from their competition, and even assists them in identifying patients at immediate risk who may need medical attention.
Biosign CEO Robert Kaul stated: "We are pleased to have another opportunity to support the important work being done at the Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation. In 2013, we experienced an enthusiastic response from our clinician customers, who recognize that the Heart Friendly™ Practice Program has a positive role to play in the promotion of heart for health. Biosign is proud to report that since inception, the Heart Friendly™ Program has screened over 53,000 Torontonians, while overall, our Pulsewave® solution has taken over 150,000 readings in clinical service."
