Everyone was very interested in the features and innovations incorporated in the development of both the ATB1 Class B and ATA100 Class A devices and we look forward to introducing them to the market in 2018. It was also great to confirm the expansion of our European distributor network at the show. We are feeling very optimistic about the year ahead.”
