BioniCare Announces Executive Management Changes

Names Business-Building Veteran as President/CEO

SPARKS, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 19, 2006 -- BioniCare Medical Technologies, Inc. today announced that it has hired industry veteran Randy Murphy as President and CEO. Murphy succeeds Thomas Zizic, M.D., who will become Chairman of the Board. Gerald Faust, Ph.D., will step down as Chairman of the Board and remain as a consultant to BioniCare on strategic issues.

Murphy, a 25-year veteran of the health care and high technology industries, served most recently as Vice President of Marketing and Sales for privately held RS Medical Inc., Vancouver, Wash. He built a nationwide sales organization and market strategy that propelled the medical technology company to rank among the 100 Fastest Growing Pacific Northwest Private Companies for six consecutive years.

The two companies have worked together since early 2005 when BioniCare signed a distribution agreement with RS Medical to market the BioniCare Knee Device, a relationship negotiated and managed by Murphy.

"The BioniCare Board hired Murphy to lead the company as it begins what will be a dynamic growth phase," said Dr. Zizic, BioniCare co-founder and former Associate Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. "We wanted an executive who will bring significant commercialization experience and proven business background to complement my scientific and medical background."
