Environmental Tectonics Corporation Announces Hyperbaric Chamber Sale Through Premier Medical Equipment Distributor in Former Soviet Republic

SOUTHAMPTON, Penn., Aug. 6 (HSMN NewsFeed) -- Environmental Tectonics Corporation's (AMEX: ETC ; "ETC" or the "Company") BioMedical Systems Division has contracted with the premier medical equipment distributor in a former Soviet republic for the delivery and installation of two BARA- MEDŽ monoplace hyperbaric chambers. This sale will increase ETC's presence in the hyperbaric medical field outside the United States/North America from nineteen to twenty countries on four continents. This will be the first country, however, that will utilize the Russian language for the operator interface with BARA-PRESS(TM), a Windows-based software control system with full semi-automatic override and manual backup. This system serves to maximize operational efficiency and enhance patient comfort and safety by allowing chamber technicians to focus their attention on patients, not on the equipment, clock/timer, or records keeping. Because of the language facilities of Windows, the presentation of operator displays in Russian will be easily accomplished.

Gene Davis, President of ETC's Biomedical Systems Division, stated, "We are very pleased to be adding this additional territory to our vast international network. Being able to offer our BARA-PRESS(TM) control system in Russian will potentially open up many more markets in the numerous countries in the former Soviet Union."

Windows is a registered trademark of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and other countries.

ETC designs, develops, installs and maintains aircrew training systems, public entertainment systems, process simulation systems (sterilization and environmental), clinical hyperbaric systems, environmental testing and simulation systems, and related products for domestic and international customers.
