Physicians, Athletes & Consumers Voice Their Approval of ActiPatch™

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 17, 2008) - debuts on the Internet today offering health consumers a choice for drug free treatment of pain and swelling in the form of a wafer thin wearable patch. ActiPatch™ made by BioElectronics Corporation (PINKSHEETS: BIEL), is an FDA cleared drug-free patch designed to reduce pain and swelling for use in reducing edema (swelling) following blepharoplasty and has no known side effects.

ActiPatch is based on the same proven and highly effective pulsed electromagnetic in-office therapy used for decades by physicians, therapists and athletic trainers worldwide. The inventors of ActiPatch have used state-of-the-art micro electronic circuitry to shrink the technology into an inexpensive, small, lightweight wearable patch that effectively reduces swelling (edema) and significantly accelerates the healing process.

Andrew Whelan, CEO of BioElectronics Corporation, explains, "When the soft tissues of the body are injured, swelling disconnects cellular communication in an attempt to prevent the spread of infection. In cases of injury, trauma or after antiseptic surgical procedures, however, this normal inflammatory response causes discomfort and pain without contributing to the healing process. In fact, in many cases and especially for surgical wounds, this swelling is usually more damaging than helpful. ActiPatch therapy is directed toward re-establishing cell communication, and suppressing the edemic response. The technology on which ActiPatch is based, electrotherapy, has been used for decades to reduce pain and swelling following injury. The clinical evidence of its efficacy is overwhelming and is supported by multiple scientific studies."

Physicians Marketing Concepts, LLC offers a complete line of ActiPatch products at The products are designed for soft tissue injuries as well as for post surgical treatment. Products include ActiPatch kits for plastic surgery recovery, back pain and sports injuries as well as individual ActiPatches in a variety of sizes.
