RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 26 /CNW/ - SunTech Medical announced
today that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) for the SunTech 247(TM) Diagnostic Station - a modular
device that will provide manual and automated blood pressure as well as
optional temperature and SpO2 measurements. The SunTech 247(TM) 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(TM) as a
clinical-grade BP device that bridges the gap between manual sphygmomanometers
and vital signs devices.
"The SunTech 247(TM) 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(TM) is offered as an affordable replacement for
mechanical blood pressure gauges. The modular plug-and-play (PnP) 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.
