SunTech Medical is rolling out a new product designed to offer clinicians an automated monitor with the option of a manual mode for measure blood pressure.
The “SunTech 247 Diagnostic Station” is also a modular device designed to support additional diagnostic modules. It is positioned as a product priced between manual blood pressure gauges and vital signs monitors.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the device in June.
Additional modules include temperature and blood-oxygen saturation.
“As the adoption of healthcare information technology increases, the need to upgrade from manual to digital instruments becomes increasingly stronger,” said Dayn McBee, SunTech Medical’s chief medical officer. “We are striving to fill the need for more affordable, flexible, and expandable technology in order to decrease the cost of healthcare and to provide greater ease of use to the clinician.”
