The LSI team had a productive week in San Antonio despite the AACVPR Annual conference moving to a virtual platform. This was the first time we have all been together in person since the start of the pandemic and we took full advantage. We had a week jam-packed with various presentations, brainstorming sessions, planning strategies, and goal setting. But we made sure to set aside plenty of time for fun, including a group scavenger hunt, a friendly game of Jeopardy, and a birthday celebration!
LSI had the opportunity to sponsor the 11th Annual Midwest Medical Center Golf Outing at the Galena Golf Club in Galena, IL. Proceeds from this event will be used for the expansion of Midwest Medical Centers’ main hospital campus so that they can continue their commitment to providing quality healthcare to the communities they serve. LSI was honored to be a part of such an impactful event, and we look forward to the next one!
The 2021 Cupid’s Cup 5K & 1 Mile Walk had over 350 virtual participants and raised more than $11,000! That money will be used to support Atrium Health’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Programs across the region. LSI was honored to sponsor such an impactful event for the 6th year in a row! We were able to get together the morning of February 13th, despite a cold and rainy day, to complete the walk/run as a team. We certainly missed seeing all of our friends during this annual event and hope to see everyone in-person in 2022!

“Having been in the industry for more than 35 years, LSI continues to be an industry leader and has gained huge traction in the market due to the quality of its solutions. Success stories of several customers are a testament to its capabilities and commitment to offering innovative solutions.”
When LSI was founded in 1985, we specialized in ICU and PCU patient monitoring systems with our ECG telemetry system leading the way. In the early 90’s, we introduced the first ever Windows based Cardiopulmonary Rehab Telemetry and Management system using Windows 3.1. Since then, the majority of our customers and end users have been cardiac and pulmonary rehab departments.
Despite our focus and advocacy over the years in the rehabilitation industry, we have always maintained our product’s ICU and PCU modes (Today, these modes have been renamed to “VSP” mode). As a medical device manufacturer, the product life cycle and the need to support it can go on for years. This creates an opportunity for us to assist our customers in this time of need during the Covid-19 pandemic.
During the past three weeks, we have called every one of our customers all across the county. We’ve heard a myriad of ways that rehab departments have been dealing with the temporary disruption of care as usual. The feedback we are receiving ranges from temporary department closure to department relocation away from the hospital to maintain regular cardiac and pulmonary rehab sessions and education.Read more »
