Wireless Digital Technology Leader Honored as "Best of the Best" for Innovation and Contributions to Georgia's Technology Community

ATLANTA, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensiotec, a wireless digital technology pioneer, announced today its receipt of the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) "Top 10" Award as one of Georgia's 10 most innovative technology companies. TAG is the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry.  TAG will formally recognize Sensiotec as a member of the prestigious TAG "Top 10 "during the 2014 Georgia Technology Summit on March 26, 2014, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.

The "Top 10" most innovative technology companies are chosen from among TAG's "Top 40" 2014 list and were chosen based on a number of criteria, including: degree of innovation; scope and financial impact of innovation; likelihood of success; and promotion of Georgia's innovative efforts nationally and internationally. 

Sensiotec is a wireless digital technology pioneer that has created Virtual Medical Assistant® (VMA), the world's first FDA-cleared, non-contact, radar-based, remote vital signs monitor. VMA is an invisible, non-wearable system that continuously tracks heart and respiration rates, bed occupancy and movement without ever touching the patient directly or indirectly. VMA allows healthcare providers to access real-time and trend data, which can be sent to any remote device instantaneously. Recently, Sensiotec released VMA 2.O expanding the platform's integration capabilities even further.

Sensiotec is honored to receive this recognition from TAG as a "Top 10" Georgia innovator," said Robert Arkin, CEO and founder of Sensiotec. "We share our award with the State of Georgia, which is nurturing an ecosystem supportive of digital healthcare innovation."

"The 2014 Top 10 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of the best from Georgia's Technology community," said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. "The 2014 Top 10 finalists are shining examples of what makes our State such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia's technology community."

"Our tenth year of the Top 40/Top 10 was an overwhelming success, based on the number of truly innovative companies that participated in the competition," said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40/Top 10 Selection Committee.  "The Top 40 winners demonstrate the depth and breadth of Georgia's technology community."
