Press Release Summary: The first EPStim - Fischer Medical\'s computer interface
system designed to enhance the Bloom Stimulator used in electrophysiology labs
around the world -- was sold to the Midwest Regional Medical Center.


DENVER, CO, February 13, 2008 Fischer Medical Technologies, Inc. (FMTI) announces
the first sale of the EPStimT, the computer interface system designed to enhance the
gold-standard Bloom Stimulator. The Midwest Regional Medical Center, located in
Midwest City, Oklahoma will install the EPStim T and two Bloom Stimulators in their
Electrophysiology department during the month of February. Under the supervision of
Dr. David Margolis, the Midwest Regional Medical Center is launching one of the
nation's only out-patient EP facilities.
The EPStim T was first introduced at the HRS tradeshow in May 2007, and has been
available since September 2007.
FMTI is providing physicians with a choice between the familiar tactile control that
is the basis of the Bloom DTU-215B Stimulator's success, and the expanded
capabilities that come with the EPStimT features: mouse, touch-screen, keyboard,
and automated protocol stimulation. Kent Kruse, FMTI's Vice President of Sales says
that Fischer's goal is to provide options to meet individual needs. He says, "With
the flip of a switch, even mid-procedure, the doctor can access the mode that is
most appropriate for the situation, whether it's a matter of personal preference, or
required by the specific patient case."
EPStimT has the ability to interpret results of stimulation in real time to allow
stimulation protocols to adjust. A switch on the front panel of the DTU-215B
enables instant switching from the EPStimT mode to normal DTU-215B controls and
stimulator settings.
After reorganizing in early 2007, FMTI is tasked with getting the word out that
"Fischer is back and better than ever." To do this Fischer Medical is participating
in a line-up of industry tradeshows, including the HRS show taking place in San
Francisco in May 2008. (Stop by for a demonstration of the EPStimT at Booth #728.)
They are also working with their former customer base to provide service and support
that had been rumored to be obsolete, but are, in fact, available and easily
accessible through their Customer Support team.
Fischer Medical Technologies Inc. designs, manufactures and markets medical
technology in the general radiography, electrophysiology and surgical imaging
systems arenas. FMTI's roots go back to 1910, when H.G. Fischer, the oldest
manufacturer of X-ray imaging devices in the United States, began its operation in
Chicago, IL. Since then, the reputation and name of the company have evolved and
gained worldwide recognition by leveraging technology that has brought to market
such innovations as the Traumex (VersaRad) and the Bloom DTU-215 Stimulator. For
