Hashmonaim, Israel (PRWEB) March 3, 2006 -–

Curatronic Ltd. today announced the appointment of an exclusive distributor for the Biomove 3000 Stroke Rehabilitation device for marketing in Thailand.

Mr. Cyrille Buhrman, Managing Director of Pacific Healthcare (Thailand) Co., Ltd., said, "It is a great honor for our company to be able to offer such an outstanding product like the Biomove 3000 to stroke victims in Thailand. We are confident that not only will the Biomove 3000 enhance our growing presence in the Thai stroke market, but also exemplifies our efforts as a company to consistently bring innovative products to Thai patients, thereby helping to improve the overall standards of stroke treatment in Thailand."

Pacific Healthcare (Thailand) Co., Ltd. was founded in 1961, and is currently one of the leading importers, regulatory affairs specialists, marketers and distributors of high quality and innovative health products in Thailand. The company specializes in consumer health products, pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and equipment, as well as specialty ingredients.

Pacific Healthcare http://www.phc.co.th offers a wide range of health-based products targeted towards clinics, hospitals, pharmacies and consumer retail.

"Pacific Healthcare is excellently positioned to market the Biomove 3000 stroke rehab device throughout Thailand. We are convinced that they will do an outstanding job in bringing this easy- to-use system to the homes of many stroke survivors,” stated Ben Philipson, CEO of Curatronic Ltd. “Millions of people suffer from the debilitating effects of stroke. Fifty percent have some one-sided paralysis and seek effective treatment for their severe, long-term disabilities.”

The Biomove 3000 system was specially developed for home therapy by the patient following a stroke. After a stroke, control signals from the brain often cannot reach some muscles, typically in the hand or foot. Without these signals, the level of electrical activity in these muscles is too low for them to contract adequately on their own. This causes them to become increasingly weaker.

The Biomove 3000 system, via three electrode patches placed on arm or leg, detects and amplifies even the slightest signals still being generated in the hand and foot muscles. Then, using an advanced form of biofeedback combined with electrical muscle stimulation the Biomove re-teaches the muscles to contract on their own.

FDA 510(k) approval allows the Biomove 3000 to be marketed in the United States and in addition Curatronic has been awarded CE certification qualifying the Biomove stroke rehab system for sale throughout the 25-nation European Union ("EU") and four-nation European Free Trade Association ("EFTA").
