The HyperQ AD-100 product is an add-on system with the HyperQ technology which is incorporated in parallel to existing standard stress ECG systems.

BSP CEO, Nissim Greisas: "The integration of the HyperQ Add-On systems into the vast installed base of standard Stress ECG systems significantly expands our potential global market. The worldwide annual stress ECG system market is estimated at $200M, and the total standard ECG installed base represents an estimated $800M market for the new product."
CE mark was also granted to BSP's software product - the HyperQ-AN. This product enables analysis with the unique HyperQ technology and can be employed in OEM and licensing business models in existing commercial stress ECG systems, such as the company's collaboration with Schiller AG.
