WESTBURY, N.Y. March 22, 2013 – VasoMedical, Inc. (“VasoMedical”) (OTC BB: VASO), a diversified medical technology company specializing in the design, manufacture and sale of medical devices for noninvasive cardiology, including EECP® Therapy systems, the gold standard of ECP therapy, announced today that that the Company will attend and exhibit at Expomed 2013, April 4-7, 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey.
Expomed is an international healthcare exhibition showcasing medical analysis, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation product, device, system, technology, equipment and hospitals. Approximately 1,200 companies and company representatives will exhibit some of the latest developments, technologies and insights across the entire healthcare sector. At this event, VasoMedical will present its core technology, EECP® Therapy, its BIOX line of ambulatory monitoring systems and software, as well as additional patient management products.
“Expomed is an important Eurasian platform to allow healthcare professionals across the globe to discover new technologies and developments in the medical field,” said Larry Liebman, vice president, sales & marketing for VasoMedical. “This environment provides VasoMedical with the opportunity to continue to spread awareness about the Company's offerings, particularly its EECP® Therapy, a safe and effective non-invasive treatment for patients suffering from heart diseases such as angina and heart failure.”
Mr. Liebman continued, “By showcasing EECP® at Expomed, one of our main goals is to continue to generate buzz about the positive benefits of EECP® Therapy in Turkey and the Eurasian region. We'd like more physicians to start turning to this Therapy as a treatment option for their patients, and the first step to achieving that goal is to educate them on the benefits of the Therapy. EECP® Therapy has already enhanced the lives of many patients in Turkey and around the world, and it continues to prove to be an effective option for those who are suffering from various heart conditions.”
“Additionally, the growing healthcare markets in the Eurasian region are looking for products like our BIOX ECG Holter and ambulatory blood pressure monitors, products with rich features and at reasonable prices that can meet the diagnostic needs of clinicians,” Mr. Liebman noted.
