SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., Nov. 20 Environmental Tectonics Corporation's (Amex: ETC) ("ETC" or the "Company") BioMedical Systems Division has contracted with the Life Support Technologies (LST), a wound care management group located in Mt. Vernon, NY, for delivery and installation of two BARA-MED(R) XD monoplace hyperbaric chambers in Good Samaritan Hospital.
LST is the management group selected by Good Samaritan Hospital - Suffern New York. LST utilizes ETC BARA-MED(R) monoplace hyperbaric chambers exclusively due to their hyperbaric industry leadership. LST owns 18 ETC chambers and is a NASA and U.S. Military Hyper / Hypobaric contractor known for their advancing technologies and solid engineering practice. LST are the recognized experts in hyperbaric medicine, chronic wound treatment, and clinical business management operating in the New York Tri-State area.
Like all hyperbaric chambers designed and manufactured by ETC's BioMedical Systems, the units shipped to Good Samaritan Hospital will contain O.S.C.A.R.(R), a computerized Operating System for Control And Recordkeeping, with full manual override. This system serves to maximize operational efficiency and enhance patient comfort and safety by allowing chamber technicians to focus their attention on patients, not on the equipment, clock/timer or records keeping.
We are proud to be the manufacturer of the industry's most technically advanced hyperbaric chamber. ETC chambers remain the leader in providing a patient friendly pressurization alternative (Smooth Ride(TM)) that minimizes complications due to middle ear and sinus barotraumas without increasing compression time.
Gene Davis, President of ETC's BioMedical Division, commented, "We are delighted to continue the relationship we have with LST and look forward to the further growth of this well established company."
The BioMedical Division plans to continue to supply its customers with both well-designed and scientifically advanced products in a competitive market. The BARA-MED(R) and BARA-MED(R) XD are a true evolution of our expertise in bringing practical value and technology closer together.
ETC designs, develops, installs and maintains aircrew training systems (aeromedical, tactical combat and general), disaster management training systems and services, entertainment products, sterilizers (steam and gas), environmental testing products, hyperbaric chambers and related products for domestic and international customers.
