MGC Diagnostics Corporation Announces Worldwide Exclusive Distribution Partnership With Restech Respiratory Technology


3/19/2013 10:17:56 AM

SAINT PAUL, Minn., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MGC Diagnostics Corporation (NASDAQ: MGCD) (formerly Angeion Corporation), a global medical technology leader, today announced that it has entered into a worldwide distribution agreement with Restech Respiratory Technology (Restech Srl), a privately held company spun-off from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, to market and distribute the Resmon Pro, Forced Oscillation Technique (FOT) device. Manufactured by Restech Srl, the Resmon Pro aids in the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory disease. Typically, the diagnosis of common respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) involve complex measurements and maximum patient effort. Restech developed patented technology to determine the breath-by-breath presence and severity of expiratory flow limitation (EFL) during quiet breathing. Using the Resmon Pro, a physician can detect the presence, severity and reversibility of EFL, and evaluate the degree of airflow obstruction and shortness-of-breath experienced by the patient.
