SEISMED INSTRUMENTS COMPLETES OFFERING AND PUBLICATION OF CLINICAL RESULTS

 SEISMED INSTRUMENTS COMPLETES OFFERING AND
 PUBLICATION OF CLINICAL RESULTS
 MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Seismed Instruments Incorporated (NASDAQ: SEISC) is pleased to announce that it has completed a public offering of its common stock. The company sold approximately 2.3 million shares in an offering underwritten by the investment banking firm of Miller, Johnson & Kuehn. The net proceeds of approximately $2.0 million from this equity financing will be used primarily to continue and complete the development of additional products and to continue the company's sales and marketing activities related to the SCG-2000 in domestic and international markets. The company's primary focus in product development is on the completion of the SE-4000, a comprehensive 12-lead electrocardiography (EKG) stress system which will incorporate the stress seismocardiography (SCG) test giving the instrument a significant competitive feature.
 The company also announced that the results of the initial clinical study on exercise SCG, which was conducted at the Minneapolis Heart Institute, has now been published in the American Journal of Noninvasive Cardiology. Over 1,200 patients undergoing routine stress EKG testing at the Minneapolis Heart Institute were also given a stress SCG test. The EKG measures electrical changes in the heart and the SCG measures changes in cardiac function. These two tests complement one another, and when performed together, they significantly improve the accuracy of stress testing for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. An important finding in the study was that the stress SCG test was found to be particularly accurate in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease in women. This is a significant development since it is well known that the stress EKG test has a high error rate for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease in women.
 Sandra Garlough, president and chief executive officer, said, "We are delighted to close this round of financing. We are now focusing on product development while we continue to increase market awareness and acceptance for the stress SCG procedure. The publication of the first major clinical study on stress SCG strengthens the foundation for our patented digital signal processed accelerometry (DSP-XL) technology and helps us in our reimbursement and promotional efforts."
 Seismed Instruments is engaged in the design, development and marketing of noninvasive diagnostic cardiology instrumentation. Seismed Instruments is a public company traded on the NASDAQ market under the symbol SEISC.
