Tactex Reports 2007 Q3 Results

    VICTORIA, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Tactex Controls Inc, manufacturer of innovative
tactile sensors, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended
September 30, 2007. The company posted its fifth consecutive
quarter-over-quarter increase in sales of products and services. Sales for the
quarter were up 12% compared to the previous quarter. Moreover, sales of
manufactured product exceeded the sales of engineering services.
    President and CEO David Lokhorst says, "In this quarter, we began
production of a computer-input device for a customer established in a niche
market. We expect production to continue through to the end of the year." In
addition to touchpad and keypad products for computer input and musical
instruments, Tactex manufactures a line of under-mattress bed sensors. Tactex
BEDsensors(TM) are used for dementia care, wandering management, and fall
prevention. The line is sold directly into the long-term care market and
offered as a component for OEM patient monitoring systems. A custom variation
on that product was sold to a leading palliative care research institution in
Q3. Says Lokhorst, "Our un-obtrusive sensors will be used to monitor the
respiration patterns and the sleep quality of the palliative care patients.
The palliative care project is an important step for us in the development of
quality-of-sleep monitoring solutions for the healthcare market."
