STAFFORD, Texas, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life-Tech, a leading provider of urodynamic equipment and accessories, announced today that it has signed a strategic distribution partnership agreement with SRS Medical, a urology medical device company. This partnership enables Life-Tech to sell the CT3000 UroCuffTM system and accessories in North America.
The CT3000 UroCuff system performs a non-invasive analysis of male voiding pressure using a principal analogous to blood pressure measurement with an inflatable cuff. The test differentiates between bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) and low bladder pressure. With over 50 clinical publications, the CT3000 has demonstrated a success rate for identifying BOO equivalent to that achieved by catheter-based urodynamic pressureflow studies.
The system is quick and easy to use and comfortable for patients. The penile cuff is fitted to the patient who then voids into a flow meter. The resulting reports include a nomogram that divides the pressure/flow measurement into Obstructed, Equivical and Non-Obstructed categories.
"Along with SRS Medical, we believe the CT3000 UroCuff fills a need in the Urologists' diagnostic arsenal for evaluating male patients with LUTS without the risks and expense associated with a urodynamic pressure-flow study. We expect this excellent device to gain wider exposure and acceptance in the Urology market through Life-Tech's Sales and Marketing network," comments Alfred Coats, MD, Life-Tech's CEO.
"Life-Tech has an unparalleled reputation for excellence in urodynamics, including a highly knowledgeable and specialized field team. I am very excited about our partnership on the Life-Tech CT3000 UroCuff device, and am confident that they will deliver the device with expert clinical training and service," comments Lee Brody, CEO of SRS Medical.
Life-Tech manufactures and markets specialized diagnostic and therapeutic medical electronic instruments and related consumable products. Its Urology Division is the worldwide pioneer in developing urodynamic instrumentation that is widely used to quantify and assess the cause of urinary incontinence and obstruction. www.life-tech.com.
