  • Vasomedical, Inc. (VASO), International EECP Therapist Association Prepare To Kick-off EECP Therapy Week With Activities To Combat Cardiovascular Disease 0 comments

    Cardiovascular disease is taking America by storm; and physicians, scientists, and medical technology companies such as Vasomedical are fighting back by educating the public on disease prevention and clinically proven alternatives to current invasive methods of treatment.

    Vasomedical and the The International EECP Therapists Association (IETA) today jointly announced the second annual EECP Therapy Week, during which EECP centers in the U.S. will host special events to promote awareness of EECP therapy and recognize the American Heart Association's Heart Month.

    To activities center on the education of cardiovascular disease and EECP Therapy, an FDA cleared, non-invasive therapy for treating patients with several heart conditions. Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) is a proprietary non-invasive cardiology treatment created and marketed by Vasomedical.

    "EECP Therapy is a complementary, non-invasive form of treatment for patients who, despite maximum medication, still suffer from angina symptoms that interfere with their daily lives," Louanne Tempich, president of International EECP Therapists Association stated in the press release. "One of the major barriers to EECP treatments being widely accepted is a lack of awareness about this therapy - people do not understand that this is an option with very real, beneficial results. Our goal with EECP Therapy Week is to increase public awareness of this treatment as a safe, non-invasive option that will help improve patients' lives."

    Among EECP Therapy Week events is the Red Balloon Release, where EECP staff and patients release balloons to the sky with personal messages as a symbolic gesture of the positive impact EECP Therapy has had on their health and the quality of their lives.

    "The first annual EECP Therapy Week was a great success," said Larry Liebman, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Vasomedical. "EECP facilities around the United States showed their support by hosting events and participating in the Red Balloon Release to help generate awareness about this treatment. Since the first annual EECP Therapy Week last year, we have seen an increase in interest and numerous inquiries from physicians and patients about the technology. To date, EECP Therapy has provided a great experience for patients who undergo treatment and scientific studies have demonstrated very positive results for these individuals."

    The second annual EECP Therapy Week will be recognized this year from February 18 - 22, 2013. The Red Balloon Release is scheduled on February 19 and will take place concurrently around the nation at 1 p.m. EST.
