Re: [IP] Soft sets vs Silohuettes??

The silohuette is identical to the following. 
Comfort Set and the TenderSet.   Comfort Set is a trademark of
Maersk Medical. Tender Set is a trademark of 
Disetronic Medical Systems, Inc. 
Disetronic is a European company with the 
main office in Switzerland
see:  http://www.disetronic.ch/a_organ.htm

I am sure you can get one of the other two in Europe. I understand they 
are all made by one company anyway.
