The sales include two units installed recently at a new replacement facility in Elbow Lake, Minnesota, and one to be installed at the group’s Morris outpatient center in May.

One of the Elbow Lake units is in an endoscopy procedure room, which represents a key market for Streamway.

Skyline Medical CEO Josh Kornberg noted that with the increased availability of minimally invasive endoscopic procedures and the aging of Baby Boomers, demand for endoscopy is rapidly increasing.

"To help meet the increased demand and keep healthcare costs down, endoscopy departments are looking for ways to be more efficient. The fully automated STREAMWAY System eliminates procedure disruptions so busy endoscopy departments can accommodate more cases per day," Kornberg added.

The Prairie Ridge installations are among 55 Streamway units already scheduled for sale or trial in early 2014.
