SAINT PAUL, Minn., March 19, 2013

SAINT PAUL, Minn., March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MGC Diagnostics Corporation
(NASDAQ: MGCD) (formerly Angeion Corporation), a global medical technology
leader, today announced that it has entered into a worldwide distribution
agreement with Restech Respiratory Technology (Restech Srl), a privately held
company spun-off from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, to  market and
distribute the Resmon Pro, Forced Oscillation Technique (FOT) device.
Manufactured by Restech Srl, the Resmon Pro aids in the diagnosis and
treatment of respiratory disease. Typically, the diagnosis of common
respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
(COPD) involve complex measurements and maximum patient effort. Restech
developed patented technology to determine the breath-by-breath presence and
severity of expiratory flow limitation (EFL) during quiet breathing. Using the
Resmon Pro, a physician can detect the presence, severity and reversibility of
EFL, and evaluate the degree of airflow obstruction and shortness-of-breath
experienced by the patient.
