Signalife, Inc. is in a rare and prestigious group of companies, as adevice-maker that has won the award from Frost & Sullivan two times in thepast three years.
In the words of Frost & Sullivan, the Technology Award "is presented toSignalife in recognition of its superior leadership and vision in patientmonitoring with its Fidelity heart monitoring systems. Signalife's uniquetechnology provides unprecedented signal clarity in the highly sought-afterreal-time, wireless cardiac monitoring arena."
Frost & Sullivan continues: "Signalife strived to provide one of the mosttrustworthy and reliable wireless monitoring product out there, and theyaccomplished this by creating a technology that significantly reduced andeffectively eliminated artifact noise before the ECG signal is amplified.This results in no need to filter the signal after it has been amplifiedpreserving the entire ECG's data. Using this as the basis of all theirtechnology, Signalife has been able to set themselves apart from other cardiacmonitors. The Fidelity 100 is the first of their products, and is comprisedof a wireless, real-time 12 lead ECG system ... "
Frost & Sullivan concludes: "While the Fidelity 100 product alone makes acase for product innovation, what really puts Signalife over the top is itsother two products at end stage development, [including the Fidelity 200,which] is taking cardiac event monitoring to a place the industry has neverbeen before, the over the counter, non-prescription market. As cardiacconditions continue to be the number one killer in the US, real self cardiacmonitoring continues to be out of the reach of the health conscious consumer.This product works to alleviate that, by providing a credit card sized fullyfunctional medical grade event monitor ... "

Dr. Lowell T. Harmison -- Signalife's President and Chief ExecutiveOfficer -- commented: "I would like to personally thank Dr. Budimir Drakulic-- who I believe to be one of the most brilliant micro-electronics experts inthe world -- as well as his team. It is not promotional to say that Signalifeis now "over the top" in terms of giving this industry the means to change itscore technology to obtain more accurate ECG's for better heart monitoring. Asa result, it should alter the way heart disease is monitored, diagnosed andtreated in general. Indeed, "over the top" are not my words -- they are Frost& Sullivan's. I personally look forward to unveiling a series of corporateevents that will guide the profession to these solutions. Stay tuned."
