Vista Medical was established in 1989, with the initial aim to develop pressure mapping for medical applications (support surfaces, hospital beds, etc...). They are based in Canada and their holding company (PatienTech) is in the USA. Vista Medical partners with Stryker to help grow the business in the medical bed and support surface market. Last year, they re-launched a whole new product line under the name BodiTrak.
