| About the Company
One of the pressing challenges of our time is to deliver quality health care as more and more uses compete for health care dollars. Part of the answer is to find new ways to reduce costs wherever possible.
Heart disease remains the leading cause of death and disability in the developed world. Diagnostic monitoring of the heart is a routine part of medical care for adults from middle age onward. Venturi Medical Systems has developed a sensor system for electrocardiography that is quicker and easier to use, has data quality equal to the best, and is more pleasing to the patient than systems currently in use.
|The PalJet fits into all clinical environments, such as Cedars Sinai Medical Towers in Los Angeles. The PalJet unit is DC (battery) powered so it can be moved to any location in the hospital at a moment's notice. For facilities that have dedicated EKG exam rooms, there is a AC (plug-in wall) unit too.
With our latest model, the PV3 Patient Cable-Electrode System, we're poised to provide new levels of cost-effectiveness to care providers, patients and reimbursers.
The advantages inherent in our technical superiority offer a substantial opportunity for business growth.
