DUBLIN, Ohio, Feb. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bound Tree Medical, the nation's leader in pre-hospital equipment and supplies, is now offering recertified AEDs and Monitor/Defibrillators, preventive maintenance programs and repair services for both recertified and new equipment. These new offerings come after Sarnova, parent company of Bound Tree Medical, recently acquired DXE Medical.
The recertified product offering provides a cost-effective alternative for new equipment to customers that need "like-new" equipment but are experiencing budget constraints. Each recertified AED and Monitor/Defibrillator endures a rigorous recertification process to ensure the highest quality. This includes state-of-the-art testing equipment operated by factory-certified technicians to calibrate according to factory recommendations from leading manufacturers such as Physio-Control, Zoll Medical, Philips, GE Healthcare, Welch Allyn and more.
"Bound Tree Medical partners with EMS agencies across the nation to provide cutting-edge equipment paired with value-added services," said Sarnova President, Jeff Prestel. "Our new recertified AED and Monitor/Defibrillator program offers our customers a valuable and much-needed service when budgets are tight."
In addition to the recertified program, Bound Tree Medical also offers maintenance and repair services for AEDs and Monitor/Defibrillators. This service, offered through 2nd Life Biomedical (www.2ndLifeBiomed.com), is designed to extend the life of both new and recertified AED's and Monitor/Defibrillators, as well as prevent costly repairs. With options like on-site preventive maintenance, loaner programs and complimentary cleaning, these new services can limit liability and maintain compliance with the FDA and accreditation agencies.
"As a market leader, we continue to identify value-added products and services to support EMS providers who often operate under constrained budgets," said Bound Tree Medical vice president of sales, Doug Bukaty. "We have listened to the needs of our customers and are proud to now offer recertified products, maintenance agreements and repair services to our already broad offering. The addition of these products and services enables us to become a cost-effective, long-term partner to our customers."
