GARDEN CITY, N.Y., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium HealthCare Inc. (OTC Pink: MHCC) today announced that its Medical Device subsidiary signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Heart Smart Inc. for the VasoScan assessment device. VasoScan is an FDA cleared, simple, non-invasive device which provides an accurate, reproducible assessment of the Autonomic Nervous System, vascular elasticity and stiffness, as well as the coronary health of "at-risk" patients in less than 5 minutes. The non-invasive test uses an LED/Photodiode finger probe sensor to observe changes in pressure, blood flow and velocity throughout the pulse wave.
Steve Seltzer, CEO & President of Heart Smart Inc. said, "We are impressed with Millennium HealthCare's ability to market to a broad range of physician practices, managed-care networks and healthcare clinics. Their ability to expand device exposure and gain broader market acceptance in this multi-billion dollar market segment was the driving force behind this agreement."
Chris Amandola, President of Millennium HealthCare Inc. stated, "Cardio vascular diseases and stroke accounted for close to 15% of the total health expenditures in recent years. The total cost and the indirect mortality cost estimates for CVD are higher than for any other major diagnostic group. We believe this is a vital area of diagnostic testing for early detection and treatment."
Dominick Sartorio, CEO of Millennium HealthCare Inc. added, "The management team at Heart Smart has successfully brought to market an FDA cleared device that is user friendly, affordable and can be used at the General Practitioner level. My team is very eager to hit the road with the device immediately."
