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.
