 Hollenhorst has been a member of the Seismed Instruments Board of Directors since 1988. Hollenhorst is leaving the board to focus on the business activities of Everest Medical Corporation.
 Sandra J. Garlough, president and CEO of Seismed Instruments, said, "Keith and Mike have been valuable members of our board of directors. They have provided our company with excellent advice and guidance and we will miss their contributions. We realize that they both have other priorities that they need to pursue at this time. Our new board members, Terry Glarner and Jim Ehlen, bring to the board experience and expertise in areas that are of particular importance to the company at this stage of our growth. Terry will assist with our financing strategies and Jim will provide us with guidance on our reimbursement and marketing strategies."
 Seismed Instruments is engaged in the development of noninvasive diagnostic cardiology instrumentation. The company's first product, the seismocardiograph (SCG), is used in conjunction with routine stress electrocardiography (EKG) testing to enhance the diagnostic accuracy of stress testing by measuring the mechanical function of the heart. The combination of the ECG and the SCG test results yield a higher predictive accuracy for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease than the ECG alone. The SCG is a cost effective approach to improving diagnostic accuracy at all sites performing stress testing. It is estimated that over 6.0 million stress tests are performed each year in the United States. The SCG-2000, seismocardiograph, sells for under $24,000.
 Seismed Instruments completed its initial public offering in March, 1991. The securities firm of Miller, Johnson & Kuehn was the underwriter for the offering. The company is traded under the NASDAQ symbol SEIS.
