VectraCor is proud to announce that the company received an award from EMS WORLD as the “2013 Top EMS Innovation Award” for our VectraplexECG Rugged unit.   VectraCor is very happy to receive this honor from the EMS World Editorial Advisory Board.  We would also like to pay our condolences to EMS World and the family of Mike Smith, who was the judge for this year’s award.  We were very sad to hear of Mike Smith’s passing.  Although we only met Mike at the EMS World EXPO meeting in Las Vegas, his enthusiasm for our product was very much appreciated. His passing is a major loss for the EMS and medical community, but the impression he left on us will be remembered forever.
