ATCOR currently sells the XCEL central blood pressure device and has a partnership with SunTech Medical for the Oscar 2 ABPM device, which both incorporate ATCOR’s SphygmoCor® and brachial cuff technology. The Company also recently announced a partnership with Andon for the development of a home-based BP device with advanced cardiovascular vital signs features.
