Santa Cruz, California- April 25, 2005 (Newswire.Net via PRWeb)

BC Tech, a leading FDA certified contract developer and manufacturer of medical products in Santa Cruz, California since 1996, is proud to announce that the EZ-IO(tm) product, designed and developed by BC Tech for VidaCare Corporation has been selected as a winner of the prestigious 2005 Medical Design Excellence Award. The awards ceremony will be held in New York on June 14th in conjunction with the 2005 Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M-East) conference.    

The MDEA competition is the premier awards program for the medical technology community, recognizing the many people behind the scenes, the engineers, scientists, and designers, who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare. This program is presented by Canon Communications LLC, and supported by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society [HFES], an interdisciplinary organization of professionals involved in the human factors field.

VidaCare's EZ-IO(tm) provides emergency medical technicians with a simple and rapid means to initiate intraosseous (IO) infusions. EZ-IO(tm) is a small battery-powered device that safely penetrates a patient's bone with a hollow drill to provide immediate IO access for any drug or fluid. In cases such as shock, trauma or cardiac arrest, patient's peripheral veins collapse making standard IV techniques difficult or impossible. Bone marrow (the intraosseous area) is actually a non-collapsible vein, through which drugs and other fluids can be administered.

We have recently completed the expansion of our manufacturing facility to accommodate the growing needs of our clients and the industry at large," said Ben Clawson, founder and CEO of BC Tech.
