Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 2, 2004
E Med Future, Inc. (OTCBB:EMDF-NEWS) announced today that the company was featured in an article by the Mansfield Journal on October 24, 2004. The article, written by Russ Kent, states that NeedleZapÂ®, which is marketed by E Med Future, Inc. in the United States and abroad, could go a long way to halting the spread of AIDS in third world countries.
NeedleZapÂ® is a portable needle destruction device that incinerates used hypodermic needles. When a used needle is inserted into the device -- which is roughly the size of a softball and runs on two D-sized rechargeable batteries -- the needle burns up at temperatures as high as 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Once destroyed, the needle can not be used again.
Dane Donahue, the Vice President of E Med Future, Inc. stated, ÂIt (NeedleZapÂ®) was developed to reduce needle-stick injuries. There are more than a million accidental needlesticks each year." The article also stated while Âthe NeedleZapÂ® is not being marketed as a way to stem the worldwide AIDS epidemic, it could have a major effect on the problem.Â
Mr. Donahue further explained that Âthere is a misperception that most AIDS cases are spread by sexual activity. In fact, most AIDS cases in other parts of the world are spread through the use of contaminated needles. Researchers agree the use of previously-discarded needles contributes to the spread of AIDS and other blood-borne infections like hepatitis and malaria. We are trying to end needle stick injuries.Â
NeedleZapÂ® has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a Class 3 medical device. It has also been approved by the European Union.
