TIRAT CARMEL, Israel, June 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- D. Medical Industries Ltd. (Nasdaq:DMED) (TASE:DMED) ("D. Medical" or the "Company"), announced today that its indirect subsidiary, Spring Health Solutions Inc. ("Spring Health"), has signed a non-exclusive agreement with an undisclosed party for the distribution of its Spring™ Universal Infusion Sets in the United States.
The agreement has an initial term of two years, and will thereafter be automatically renewed for one-year periods, unless terminated by the parties. In addition, each party may terminate the agreement upon three months prior written notice to the other party.
"The new distribution agreement, signed in the U.S., will allow us to bring the Spring Universal novel technology to even more people with diabetes across the U.S. It is also aligned with our strategy of focusing on partnering with high quality value creators," said Efri Argaman, D. Medical's Chief Executive Officer.
About the Spring Universal Infusion Set
The Spring Universal Infusion Set is compatible with most insulin pumps currently available on the market. Going beyond the minimum requirements of subcutaneous drug delivery, the Spring Universal offers best-in-class features such as a hidden, auto-retractable needle, 360 degree connector, and smallest one-click, all-in-one inserter.
The core of the Spring Universal Infusion Set is the proprietary Detach-Detect mechanism. In the case, the base of the infusion set detaches from the user's body, a blocking mechanism is triggered which, in turn, creates an occlusion. This evokes an occlusion alarm in an insulin pump. This unique feature enables exceptional reliability for continuously controlled and monitored insulin delivery, providing additional safety and peace of mind - especially for athletes and the parents of pediatric patients.
