We are pleased to announce the launch of MiniBox Academy, our innovative, self-paced e-learning training and certification program for MiniBox+ customers. MiniBox Academy is designed to improve PFT testing expertise, and ensure testing consistency, accuracy and reproducibility, as well as facilitate an outstanding patient experience.

We welcome Eran Uri to lead our sales and marketing operations in Europe, Africa, Asia (excluding Japan) and South America. Eran joins us after serving in several senior management positions in sales, marketing and business development at a variety of medical device companies.

Mr. Tokuda has over 30 years of sales management experience in the Japanese medical market.

PulmOne is participating as an exhibitor at three major industry meetings between October and December this year.  We will be conducting live demo’s of the MiniBox at our booth at CHEST 2018 in San Antonio, ACAAI 2018 in Seattle, and AARC 2018 in Las Vegas.  As always, we will be providing detailed information about our financing options and special offers.

Scott Yokobosky joins the PulmOne team with 20 years’ successful experience in several sales leadership positions in both pharmaceutical and medical device companies. We welcome him aboard as he leads our national sales team in North America.

PulmOne will be displaying the MiniBox next week at the Joint Congress of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology and the World Allergy Organization in Orlando. As always, we will be demo-ing the MiniBox at our booth, and providing detailed information about our financing options and special offers for upcoming upgrades.

With the MiniBox+, hospitals and clinics can now perform complete Pulmonary Function Testing AND transfer the results to their EHR management system, keeping local and central systems synchronized. The MiniBox+ EHR connectivity module is HL7 compliant, easily configurable, and integrates with all major EHR systems.

The MiniBox+ now supports data entry of the 6-Minute Walk Test (6MWT) and allows for reporting results along with patient pulmonary function data. The 6MWT is a simple and objective measurement of functional capacity commonly used to assess patients with cardiovascular and/or respiratory diseases.

At the end of this month, PulmOne is exhibiting at two major congresses in the Allergy, Asthma and Pulmonary fields: The Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology in Boston, and the CHEST Annual Meeting in Toronto. As we do at all exhibitions, we will be performing live demo’s of the MiniBox at our booths.

PulmOne welcomes Michael Mesnik to its team as VP Marketing and Product Management. Michael has over 20 years’ experience in the respiratory diagnostic market, most recently as Director of Marketing at CareFusion. We are confident that Michael will play a key role in providing and implementing high quality solutions for our clients.

PulmOne recently received two additional regulatory approvals for the sale of the MiniBox+. The MiniBox+ now holds the Health Canada License, and is also certified by TGA Australia. These approvals were obtained only four months after the MiniBox+ received FDA clearance, in October 2016.

PulmOne Advanced Medical Devices is pleased to announce that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the MiniBox+ PFT device for sale in the USA. In addition to all the parameters measured by the MiniBox, the MiniBox+ has an integrated module for single breath Carbon Monoxide Diffusing Capacity (DLCO) testing. It offers fully automated measurements of Calculated DLCO, VA, and KCO.

With this clearance, PulmOne now offers complete pulmonary function testing in any clinical setting.

PulmOne participated in a number of exhibitions at scientific conferences both in Europe and the US in recent weeks. Visitors to our booth observed live MiniBox demonstrations of lung volume measurements with only 2 minutes of tidal breathing, and were impressed with the ease of use, automatic measurements, and portability of the device.
