ANNAPOLIS, MD--(Marketwire - Dec 4, 2012) - Zephyr Technology Corporation, a world leader in remote physiologic monitoring, announces the sale of three wireless physiologic status monitoring systems to the Lehigh Valley Health Network. Lehigh Valley Health Network comprises three hospitals with over 1,100 primary and specialty physicians in Allentown and Bethlehem, PA. The systems will be used in the Network's Health and Wellness facilities to provide training and fitness assessments to their membership. Additional programs are planned incorporating Zephyr systems in rehabilitation and throughout the care continuum.
Central to the PSM system is the BioHarness 3.0, an FDA-cleared, multi-parameter vital signs monitor with 3D accelerometry. The system uses Zephyr's proprietary ECHO radio communications protocol to monitor groups of up to 50 individuals. "We are pleased that Lehigh Valley Health Network has selected Zephyr and our PSM Training System to monitor their healthy population in their fitness centers. We look forward to working with LVHN to bring our ZephyrLIFE™ remote wireless monitoring solution to their patients in areas such as chronic disease management, home care, and perhaps in the near future, cardiac rehabilitation," stated Paul Costello, Vice President of Sales.
