SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Oct. 01, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wellness Center USA, Inc. (OTCQB:WCUI), today announced that it has commenced with shipments of its flagship product, Psoria-Light®, to key areas in the United States; notably, New York, Miami, Cleveland, and Chicago, with more on the way. Production, marketing, and distribution are being facilitated by the Joint Venture (PDC, LLC), established with The Medical Alliance, Inc., and led by Mr. John A. Yorke, Managing Director.
Psoria-Light® sales are being conducted under two primary channels, a) direct sales, and b) medical distributors. For strategic reasons, initial units are being sold for the short term through the direct sales channel to Key Opinion leaders (KOL’s) at private practices and clinics in the USA. KOL’s are well recognized dermatologists who are experts in their field and provide added value to the company’s advisory, marketing, and branding campaign. In exchange for their contribution, KOL’s are granted certain service privileges and favorably reduced pricing of $49,900 per unit.
To facilitate sales, the company has partnered with a reputable medical equipment leasing firm extending affordable and accommodating terms for all direct purchasers of Psoria-Light®. Doctors wishing to purchase Psoria-Light® through the leasing company can inquire directly with Psoria-Shield.
Regarding the leasing program, doctors are granted affordable monthly payments to the leasing firm with a 90-day grace period for the first and last payment, and no money down. Accordingly, the leasing entity assumes payment responsibility to Psoria-Shield in one full payment; released immediately following receipt of unit and operational in-service acknowledgement by the purchaser – estimated at two weeks. Arrangements for medical distributors are being conducted on a case-by-case basis, depending on volume and demographics.
For the benefit of potential patients who are interested in receiving Psoriasis, Eczema, and/or Vitiligo treatment, the company intends to provide specifics pertaining to doctors’ names and center locations respectively through a follow up announcement, as soon as the treatment centers have the units up and running.
John Yorke, managing partner of PDC, comments, “I strongly believe that Psoria-Light® is the best device on the market today for treating skin ailments in all aspects, including efficacy, affordability, and patient comfort. Knowing all along that we had the ultimate device for the market, I am glad we endured the pressures of shipping units later rather than sooner - for the sake of perfection in performance and reliability. “As a result, we now have the materials and support mechanisms in place to allow physicians to maximize the utilization of our device. At the end of the day, we are shipping a better unit today and our dermatologists and their clients will benefit from our determination,” added Chris Waugh, marketing director of PDC.
“We are very excited to have reached this major milestone,” stated Mr. Andrew Kandalepas, CEO of Wellness Center USA, Inc. “Through our Joint Venture, we were able to successfully commercialize the Psoria-Light® into a highly effective and viable alternative to today’s stagnating competition,” he continued.
In addition to Psoria-Light® shipments within the United States, sales channels are also being established internationally within Canada, Mexico, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and Africa, which will give Psoria-Light® significant global exposure in the skin treatment sector whereby more than 700 million people suffer from auto-immune related skin diseases.
Psoria-Light® is the first in the world FDA cleared DEEP UV LED Phototherapy device for treating skin diseases such as Psoriasis, Eczema, Vitiligo and more.
