SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Environmental Tectonics Corporation's (Amex: ETC) ("ETC" or the "Company") BioMedical Systems Division today announced the sale of two (2) BARA-MED(R) XD Monoplace Hyperbaric Chambers to Oasis Hyperbarics, Mt. Pleasant, SC, USA.
ETC is delighted to work with Oasis Hyperbarics, a new hyperbaric medical practice run by Eric Brittain, MD and Tim Osbon, MD. Oasis Hyperbarics is affiliated with Hyperbaric Therapy of Low Country in Hilton Head, SC, another facility that utilizes BARA-MED(R) XD Monoplace Hyperbaric Chambers.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) is a non-invasive therapy. In its clinical applications, the patient breathes 100% oxygen while fully enclosed in a specially designed chamber at ambient pressures up to three times normal atmospheric pressure. HBO is used to promote and support healing in the management of conditions in which oxygen transport to the tissues has been disrupted by traumatic injury, infection, inflammation, or edema.
ETC prides itself on being the only manufacturer of a computerized monoplace hyperbaric chamber. The BARA-MED(R) XD includes a 4th generation Windows(TM) based operating system. Our computerized system eliminates the need for operator dive time management and paper recordkeeping while ensuring comprehensive documentation of the procedure. These features enable technicians to focus their attention on patient care and management, making them more effective and efficient.
Gene Davis, President of ETC's BioMedical Division, commented, "I am very pleased with our sales performance this fiscal year. Through the third quarter, sales were up over 90% from last year. ETC is finally evidencing the benefit of our continuous investment in technology and our Windows(TM) based operating system."
ETC's BioMedical Systems Division's goal is to keep its equipment and customers at the forefront of hyperbaric medicine. In addition to their regular use in clinical treatments at medical facilities around the globe, the BARA-MED(R) XD hyperbaric chambers are routinely involved in the field of research.
ETC designs, develops, installs and maintains aircrew training systems (aeromedical, tactical combat and general), disaster management training systems and services, entertainment products, sterilizers (steam and gas), environmental testing products, hyperbaric chambers and related products for domestic and international customers.
