Environmental Tectonics Corporation's Biomedical Systems Group's New Software Improves Patient Safety



Southampton, Pa,September 13, 2006: - Environmental Tectonics Corporation's (AMEX:ETC) ("ETC" or the "Company") BioMedical Systems Group today announced enhancements to the safety of hyperbaric chambers with the new-version release of its successful BARA-PRESS(TM) chamber control software. This software allows chamber operators to focus on patient care rather than the complex equipment being used. This fourth generation release is standard on the Group's BARA-MED® 30° I.D. and 34° I.D. hyperbaric chambers.

The BARA-PRESS(TM) software is managed through a 10-inch touch screen display. It is multi-lingual and has a comprehensive menu of sophisticated user selectable functions which include the automatic SMOOTH-RIDE(TM) pressure-change technology.

The SMOOTH-RIDE(TM) protocol of BARA-PRESS(TM) follows a curvilinear compression and decompression sequence based on U.S. Air Force research which revealed that such compression technology reduces the incidence of barotraumas by approximately 67%(1) and the common patient "ear-squeeze" discomfort is virtually eliminated.

Features of the new BARA-PRESS(TM) release include an on-line user manual, user selectable pressure scales (PSI, ATA, kPA, BAR, MSW, FSW), and temperature scales (Celsius and Fahrenheit).
