CAS Medical Systems, Inc. Launches Supportive Positioning Aid for Premature Infants
Branford, CT – October 19, 2002 – CAS Medical Systems, Inc. (CAMY) announced today that it has acquired the Premie Nestie®, developmentally supportive positioning aid for premature infants from Tiny Things, Inc., the developer of the product. Under the terms of agreement, CAS assumes full responsibility for all future production and sale of the product.
The Premie Nestie can reduce caregiver time spent on containment and provide continuity in positioning for the infant. Proper positioning and containment are essential components of effective developmentally supportive care. Research has shown that babies managed with such care gain weight better and have fewer episodes of apnea and oxygen desaturation. The one-piece design makes it easy to use.
Louis P. Scheps, President and CEO of CAS Medical Systems, Inc. states, “CAS is committed to offering products that bring value to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, while helping to make the nurses time more productive when caring for the baby. The Premie Nestie is the third new neonatal product we have introduced in the last six months and is a natural extension of the product line.”
The acquisition of the Premie Nestie further strengthens CAS’ position as a provider of quality neonatal supplies. CAS launched the BiliBottoms™ phototherapy diaper line in August and the Klear-Trace® 1000 neonatal ECG electrode in September of this year.
Founded in 1984, CAS Medical Systems, Inc. designs, manufactures and markets medical products, specifically products for neonatal intensive care, blood pressure measurement equipment, and apnea monitoring equipment. The Company’s products are designed to improve the quality of patient care and provide exceptional value and performance. With a reputation for the highest quality products available in the markets it serves, CAS’ products are used by clinicians worldwide.
