BURLINGTON, ON, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - EKO International Inc. (EKNL-Pinksheets) is pleased announce an update on the product awareness campaign by NeuroVasc Clinical Inc. (NCI).
NCI is in negotiations with a company specializing in the supply of bi-directional electronic communication systems to the medical profession including physicians, diabetes education centres and health care providers for diabetics across Canada.
NCI's participation in this inter-active electronic communication system will make it possible for NCI's marketing team to deliver product knowledge, sales information and operating instructions in the use of the NC-Stat DPN check device (a point of care nerve conduction measurement tool essential in the early detection of peripheral neuropathy) to thousands of medical professionals across the country at the same time.
NCI will continue to support the Canadian and American Diabetes Associations' call for the annual testing of all diabetics for peripheral neuropathy, testing which medical professionals can accurately administer with the NC-Stat DPN check device supplied by NCI
NCI's goal is to continuously educate the health care community about the role FREMs can play in treating peripheral neuropathy and in preventing leg ulcers and their devastating complications.
The communication system is anticipated to be very useful in assisting thousands of health care providers to make the decision to either buy FREMS equipment to treat their patients or to direct their tested diabetic patients to the closest centres operating FREMS equipment.
Further details will be provided once negotiations are finalized.
