Medical Care Technologies Inc. Begins Development of Image Capture for Autism Using Tele-Health™ Suite

BEIJING--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) - Medical Care Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: MDCE) today announced the initial development of Tele-Health™ Suite 6.17 technology with image capture for Autism. This technology will allow families and professionals to record behaviours and catalogue them within our Medsuite™ for further analysis and treatment. Diagnosis relies on behavioural observation and screening.

One of the most important child health issues gaining international attention is the cluster of conditions known as Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD. It is also sometimes referred to as Pervasive Developmental Disorder or PDD. The most available information on autism focuses on children with the condition, even though ASD persists when they become adults.

In 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) argued that the world faces a critical problem with the growing number of people with mental and neurological problems, including autism, which accounts for 11% of global disease. The number is projected to reach 14.7% by 2020. Specifically for China, the WHO reported 1,100,000 cases of autism. George Hackworth's article, Autism and Global Human Rights, reports that "the rate of autism is growing at 14% around the world, but in China it's growing at a rate of 20% per year."

Ning Wu, President of Medical Care Technologies states, "The importance of the Medical Care Technologies image capture technology is to assist in early detection of symptoms. Early symptom recognition and intervention can help the child function at his or her highest possible level and it is our belief that early detection of autistic symptomtology is key to better treatment outcomes for autism in China."
