Analogic Releases White Paper on Innovative Home Fetal Monitoring Program

PEABODY, Mass., Mar 26, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Analogic Corporation (NASDAQ: ALOG) has published a white paper on
the successful use of home fetal monitoring to reduce the risk of
recurrent stillbirth from Umbilical Cord Accidents (UCA). The white
paper is based on the preliminary results of a case study conducted by
Dr. Jason Collins of the Pregnancy Institute in Slidell, Louisiana,
which uses Analogic’s FETALGARD Lite® – NIBP fetal monitor to detect
early signs of umbilical cord compression in pregnant women with a
history of stillbirth due to UCA. Patients in the program — 30
pregnant women have participated so far — are monitored remotely from
their homes during the last weeks of their pregnancy using the
FETALGARD Lite – NIBP and special patient management, web-based
software from e.Care Solutions. The study has shown that when the
fetal heart rate is monitored during the mother’s most restful hours,
typically in the evening or at night, early signs of stress due to
umbilical cord compression can be detected and stillbirth averted.

The white paper discussing the study is available for download on
Analogic’s web site: www.analogic.com/fetalhomemonitoring. For more
