Urodynamix and Medical Measurement Systems Announce Worldwide Agreement to Expand Distribution for Bladder Product

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 21, 2008) - Urodynamix Technologies Ltd. ("Urodynamix") (TSX VENTURE:URO) today announced that it has entered into a worldwide distribution agreement with Medical Measurement Systems B.V. ("MMS"), a leading developer and distributor of medical diagnostic systems for urology, gastroenterology and neurology headquartered in the Netherlands.

In addition to traditional business terms for distribution, MMS will make additional royalty payments of 12% up to a maximum of $250,000 on product purchases. In exchange, MMS receives non-exclusive sales, marketing and distribution rights for acute care applications of Urodynamix's uroNIRS technology in North America and Europe, and non-exclusive sales, marketing and distribution rights worldwide for the uroNIRS 2000 Bladder Monitor System - a non-invasive medical device that uses NIRS to diagnose lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in a urology office setting.

Along with their dominant presence in product innovation, development and distribution in the urodynamics markets throughout Europe and Asia, MMS has strong distribution channels in North America. Based on early sales performance in the research market, the agreement with MMS is a key part of Urodynamix's expansion strategy to partner with geographic market leaders and capitalize on significant opportunities globally for uroNIRS technology.

"Our non-invasive NIRS technology continues to present new opportunities for the diagnosis and treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms and prostate disease," said Barry Allen, CEO of Urodynamix. "MMS has the ability to effectively market our multiple uroNIRS technology platforms, and we expect to accelerate our sales penetration and minimize our costs by working with their existing specialized sales and distribution teams."

"MMS is a market leader in urodynamics and we are looking forward to introducing and promoting this exciting new technology," said Arjen J. de Weerd, President of MMS. "By integrating Urodynamix's uroNIRS technology with our Solar line of urodynamics systems we will continue to provide the latest advances in non-invasive diagnostic technology to our global customer base."

MMS expects to launch uroNIRS Bladder Monitor products in North America and Europe by the end of 2008 with sales commencing in 2009.
