Beacon Equity Research Featured Company: HealthSonix, Inc. (HSXI.PK)

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

HealthSonix, Inc. (HSXI.PK) is a medical technology company that develops and markets an integrated family of products and services that provide pain relief and muscle stimulation for people with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and musculoskeletal conditions related to muscle injuries. Their focus is essentially on medical conditions where acute and chronic pain, muscle stiffness, poor circulation, and diminishing flexibility are among the underlying symptoms. The company’s medical devices are based on patent pending technologies that deliver sound pressure waves directly to the human body.

HealthSonix has developed a technology that applies sound pressure waves to the human body to relieve pain. Based on the sound pressure wave technology, which has a pending US patent, the Company has developed its trademarked ‘enSonix’ medical devices for the treatment of arthritis. The devices generate intensity-specific sound pressure waves that work on the neurovascular systems of the body to bring about desired therapeutic effects. HealthSonix, which initiated research in this field in 2001, claims to have had remarkable success with enSonix Therapy in the treatment of arthritis without known side effects.

The Company has also developed a novel treatment method that combines sound pressure waves with low impact exercises in warm water pools to treat arthritis patients. The treatment, called AquaSonix Therapy, helps to reduce and, in some cases, eliminate arthritis pain and restore flexibility. AquaSonix Therapy, claimed to be a breakthrough in the relevant field of medical treatments, is undergoing additional clinical research trials to provide clinical evidence for expanded medical claims.

HealthSonix recently strategically acquired KyoCare Health Co., a research and development organization that turned into a medical technology company. The Company has also enlisted physicians, rheumatologists and healthcare centers for the AquaSonix Therapy program. HealthSonix has set up Arthritis Treatment Centers and therapy pools to offer its sound pressure wave therapy in combination with other methods of treatment.
