Oscar 2™ Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor Includes Revolutionary Patent-Pending Orbit™ Blood Pressure Cuffs

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.--(CCNMatthews - Sep 12, 2005) -

SunTech Medical, Inc., the world leader in motion-tolerant, non-invasive blood pressure monitoring products and technology announces the introduction of their patent-pending Orbit™ blood pressure cuffs in all Oscar 2™ and Oscar 2™ PowerPack ABPM systems. The Orbit cuff is specifically designed to enhance patient compliance for 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) applications.

"This innovative cuff is designed to make the ABPM process easier for clinicians and more comfortable for patients," according to Kenneth Andersen, Product Manager for SunTech's ambulatory blood pressure products. "We strongly believe our new Orbit cuff adds exceptional value to an already robust ABPM system."

The unique, integral sleeve design of the Orbit provides unmatched patient comfort for extended wear periods. This technology aids in obtaining uninterrupted measurements by comfortably maintaining proper cuff placement even in the most active patient.

"Over the past several years there has been little advancement in ABPM cuffs for patient comfort," said William B. White, M.D. Professor of Medicine at the University of Connecticut Health Center and Editor-in-Chief of Blood Pressure Monitoring. "With the new Orbit cuff, patients have expressed more comfort than with the older style cuffs."
