April 9, 2014

MONTREAL, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – The Montreal Neurological
Institute and Hospital – The Neuro, at McGill University and the McGill
University Health Centre, announced today that it received an important
donation from Montreal-based Vigilant Global to purchase urgently
needed clinical care equipment. The donation allowed The Neuro to
acquire seven portable vital sign monitors which have far-reaching
implications for the quality of care provided to patients.


“Vigilant Global’s much appreciated donation allows The Neuro to provide
a continuous monitoring option for patients whose care requires close
and sustained attention. Our clinical staff is both dedicated and
passionate, but they also rely on technology to help them provide the
best care possible,” said Dr. Guy Rouleau, Director of The Neuro.

The technology firm has a history of helping The Neuro. In 2012,
Vigilant Global’s R&D team donated their time each week to help The
Neuro expand upon its data acquisition software for use with a new
medical device testing the motor skills in patients suffering from
neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s

“The Neuro is a world-class integrated research institute and hospital
and is on track to having the world’s largest and most innovative brain
imaging centre. Countless Montrealers, including our employees, have
been touched in some way by what The Neuro does and our donation is a
small gesture of our appreciation for the hospital and dedicated
staff,” said Arvind Ramanathan, co-founder and director of Vigilant
