The Midmark SleepView Monitor/Portal, for testing and diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), has been named as an Award Finalist by the internationally renowned 2012 Edison Awards in the Science/Medical category, one of 15 categories honored by the awards.

The distinguished awards symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison, inspiring America’s drive to remain in the forefront of innovation, creativity, and ingenuity in the global economy.

“More than any year, this year’s slate of finalists demonstrates the enormous value of teamwork, experimentation, consumer focus, and market awareness,” said Tom Stat, chairman of the Edison Awards’ Steering Committee. “It’s exciting to see companies like Midmark continuing Thomas Edison’s legacy of challenging conventional thinking.”

The Midmark SleepView Monitor is the market’s smallest and lightest portable sleep monitor and allows patients to be tested in the comfort and convenience of their own home. When connected to the Midmark SleepView Portal, this system provides prescribing physicians with secure, HIPAA-compliant online access to raw data or a bridge to registered polysomnographic technologists and board-certified sleep physicians who provide scoring, professional interpretation, and treatment recommendations.

Winners of the Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards will be announced April 26, 2012, at the Edison Awards Annual Gala, held in the historic ballroom of New York’s famed Capitale.
