Neurovirtual attended the SLEEP 2016 show held in Denver, Colorado. We presented our full line of PSG products, which offer the most forward-thinking software package in the industry, with user-friendly tools and the most cost-effective licensure policy available. We took the opportunity to re-introduce ourselves to the greater sleep market as the better choice in today’s environment, which demands greater value. Our devices, software, and support are designed to offer high quality at lower initial and life-time costs, which is in line with the realities of sleep medicine reimbursements today.
