PERFORMANCE HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES PARTNERS WITH LOGIC PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT TO DESIGN NEXT GENERATION CORE:TXÂ® REHABILITATION TOOL
Performance Health Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:PFMH), a leader in the development and marketing of innovative products that guide and monitor exercise and rehabilitation, announced today it has signed an agreement with Minneapolis-based Logic Product Development. Under the agreement, Logic, a product development and manufacturing company, will improve the usability and design of the next-generation Core:TxÂ® rehabilitation device.
Core:TxÂ® is a computer-based program that uses wireless motion-sensing technology designed for neuromuscular re-education, a technique used by rehabilitation therapists to restore normal movement in patients with neuromuscular impairments resulting from trauma, medical conditions and neurological conditions, such as stroke and traumatic brain injury. The updated version will be significantly smaller and lighter, read movement in multiple directions, and have multi-use capabilities for a more complex exercise program. The product will also be able to run on Bluetooth technology for greater accuracy and improved signal strength, enabling the Core:TxÂ® to account for a more peripheral movement. The device is scheduled to be ready for release along with the next generation of Core:Tx Â® software, which is planned to be web-enabled to allow for remote access to the therapy. With this product, patients will be able to remain connected to their physical therapists via the internet.
“We are excited by LogicÂ™s mission to help its clients design, develop, and deliver better products sooner, said Robert D. Prunetti, chief executive officer of Performance Health Technologies. The market for consumer-electronic-based therapeutic and well-being products is expected to grow by 20 percent per year, reaching about $4 billion worldwide by 2010. We are committed to continue innovating to meet this demand through the convergence of clinical knowledge and cutting-edge technology. We expect our partnership with Logic to help us continue supporting these efforts and look forward to a prosperous relationship.
