Performance Health Technologies Highlighted Nationally in Media Reports Focused on Company’s Innovative Therapy Products
Performance Health Technologies, Inc. (PHT)(OTC BB: PFMH), a leader in the development and marketing of innovative products that guide and monitor exercise and rehabilitation, announced today that its proprietary Core:Tx(R) rehabilitation product has recently been cited in several high-profile national news media reports.
Performance Health Technologies' Core:Tx(TM) is the subject of a Medstar Advances (http://www.medstar.com/) news segment. Over 60 major U.S. and regional television networks have received the segment and will begin airing it from now until the end of September. Medstar Television, Inc. is America's leader in televised medical news and health information, providing innovative programming to broadcast stations and cable networks worldwide through their staff of award-winning medical journalists and television news professionals.
In addition, PHT Clinical Applications Specialist Pete Sanzio was quoted in a recent Denver Post article about ways to keep your knees healthy and strong. The article was subsequently picked up by daily newspapers reaching a total of 2,527,511 readers across the United States and Canada.
Designed to enhance existing rehabilitation, preventative and strengthening protocols, Core:Tx(R) for Professionals turns rehabilitation into a wireless, game-like challenge that is entertaining and works for a variety of patients recovering from neuromuscular conditions as well as joint injuries.
Core:Tx(R) is a patent-pending wireless system built on PHT's innovative MotionTrack(TM) platform, used by professional sports teams. It combines hardware and software operating on a personal computer (PC) as well as a small, soap bar-sized motion-sensing device that can be attached anywhere on a user's body with adjustable straps. This device senses the user's limb motion relative to the user's joint and continuously transmits that information wirelessly to the PC software. This real-time visual feedback helps keep the patient engaged in the therapy routine, while simultaneously aiding neuromuscular reeducation and strengthening muscles throughout an adjustable range of motion.
