OXFORD, England, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- t+ Medical is delighted to announce the acquisition of Vivatec Ltd. Following a period of rapid expansion including a successful launch of t+ Clinical into the clinical trial market, the purchase of Vivatec will allow t+ Medical to aggressively expand by offering an integrated solution covering medical devices, communication technology and nurse call centres to its customers.

t+ Medical is the leading global supplier of mobile phone based technology for capturing patient data for long term condition management and clinical trials. t+ Medical's clinically validated solution offers a unique combination of simplicity and effectiveness which delivers impressive economic and healthcare returns for its customers.

Vivatec is one of only 13 companies to be selected as a supply partner to the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency (NHS PASA) for telecare products and services. The company supplies two of the three Department of Health funded Whole System Demonstrators which are evaluating remote monitoring technologies across 6,000 patients in the UK. The company will now further develop its position as a leading supplier of a complete spectrum of patient monitoring devices.

In a joint statement Tim Clover, CEO of t+ Medical Holdings and Andrew Hall, founder and Managing Director of Vivatec said "The combination of two successful companies creates a complete solution for both healthcare and drug discovery organisations. This acquisition enables t+ Medical to expand its current offering by adding an extensive range of medical device technologies to its remote patient monitoring solutions and ePRO technologies for clinical trials. The synergy between the two companies provides an ideal base from which to further deliver the benefits of mobile telephones in healthcare and we expect that this latest development will enable the rapid growth that we have experienced to continue."
