SAINT PAUL, Minn., May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MGC Diagnostics Corporation (NASDAQ: MGCD), a global medical technology leader, has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Neurovirtual USA Inc. under which MGC Diagnostics will market and distribute the SleepVirtual BWII PSG and BWIII PSG Diagnostic polysomnography systems in the United States and Canada.

The SleepVirtual products are used in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea and sleep-related breathing disorders.  Sleep apnea diagnosis is usually done at a sleep disorders unit within a hospital or at a sleep center.

The SleepVirtual BWII has a small, lightweight design and may be used as a stationary unit or a portable unit (fitting into a small briefcase), providing flexibility to use one device in several locations. The SleepVirtual BWIII PSG Plus is a larger device with combined sleep and neuro-diagnostics (EEG) capabilities.

Todd M. Austin, EVP Global Marketing, Engineering and Corporate Strategy of MGC Diagnostics, commented "Our agreement with SleepVirtual is an example of how MGC Diagnostics continues to execute strategic partnerships with "best in class" providers of technology serving adjacent cardiorespiratory diagnostic markets. Together with SleepVirtual, MGC Diagnostics is well positioned to provide diagnostic capabilities to physicians managing complex patients, including patients with both COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and OSA (obstructive sleep apnea). Leveraging MGC Diagnostic's global sales, marketing, and support network provides our customers best-in-class access to cardiorespiratory healthcare professionals and their patients throughout the world."

Ed Faria, MBA, Chief Executive Officer of Neurovirtual, commented: "As a private company with limited resources, this agreement allows us to focus our efforts on product development and customer service, further developing our SleepVirtual product line and advancing our technology."
