Media Alert: VPG's Standard and Custom Weight and Force Sensors for Medical Applications to Be on Display at CMEF Spring 2012

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2012) - Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG) today announced that in booth B22 at CMEF (China International Medicinal Equipment Fair) Spring 2012, its VPG Transducers division will be showcasing a variety of high-quality standard and custom Celtron, Revere, Sensortronics, and Tedea-Huntleigh brand weight and force sensors for medical applications. The exhibition will be held from April 17-20 at the Shenzhen International Convention & Exhibition Center in China.

Founded in 1979, CMEF has become the largest exhibition of medical equipment and related products and services in the Asia-Pacific region. At the event, technical experts will be on hand to explain how VPG's sensors can be tailored to meet the mounting, connectivity, and accuracy requirements of a wide range of medical applications.

For patient weighing in hospital beds, stretchers, incubators, patient floor and ceiling lifts, and bathing aids, VPG's weight sensors offer easy-entry or hidden-from-view installation and don't interfere with X-ray equipment while weighing. For space-saving folding scales for wheelchairs, VPG Transducers offers weigh sensors with low profiles down to 20 mm.

VPG's force sensors offer high accuracy and reliability for the monitoring of internal tube pressure in infusion pumps; blood pressure and heart rate monitoring; measurable rehabilitation evaluation equipment in physiotherapy; and feedback control units in prosthetics.
