Zargis Medical Strikes Gold at 2010 Edison Awards
Date:5/14/2010

STAMFORD, Conn., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Zargis Medical Corp., a majority-owned subsidiary of Speedus Corp. (Nasdaq: SPDE), today announced that its Zargis Cardioscan device and the compatible 3M™ Littmann® Electronic Stethoscope Model 3200 were the joint recipients of a Gold Award on April 29th at The Edison Best New Products Award gala, presented by Discovery Channel in New York City. The prestigious Gold Award is the top honor given by the Edison Award Steering Committee for product excellence in innovation, creativity and ingenuity, as demonstrated by inventor Thomas Alva Edison. Zargis and 3M were recognized in the Electronics and Computers category—the category in which the Apple® iPhone was the 2009 Gold Award winner.

Zargis Cardioscan software supports physicians in analyzing cardiac sounds for the identification and classification of suspected murmurs, which can be signs of heart disease, and allows healthcare professionals to record, visualize and transmit recordings made with a stethoscope. The software represents a breakthrough in computer-aided auscultation that has the potential to reduce unnecessary referrals.

"Pairing the Littmann Electronic Stethoscope Model 3200 with Zargis Cardioscan software is a huge advancement in changing the way clinicians listen to and interpret heart sounds," said Debra Rectenwald, president and general manager, 3M Infection Prevention Division.
