Boca Raton, Fla. – July 27, 2011 – David H. Fater, CEO of Vicor Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: VCRT), today announced that Vicor and ZOLL Medical Corporation (NASDAQ GS: ZOLL), have entered into a licensing and development agreement. ZOLL Medical Corporation is the leading global manufacturer of resuscitation and critical care devices and related software solutions, including professional defibrillators and automated external defibrillators (AEDs), the LifeVest ® Wearable Defibrillator , the AutoPulse ® Non-invasive Cardiac Support Pump, and Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM™) equipment. Vicor Technologies is a biotechnology company focused on the commercialization of its PD2i Analyzer™ , an innovative, non-invasive diagnostic employing Vicor’s patented, proprietary PD2i ® nonlinear algorithm.
