D. Medical's Revolutionary "Spring Hybrid Patch" Pump Solution to be Officially Unveiled at ATTD 2011

TIRAT CARMEL, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2011) - D. Medical Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ:DMED)(TASE:DMDC) ("D. Medical" or "Company"), a medical device company engaged through its subsidiaries in the research, development, manufacture and sale of innovative products for diabetes treatment and drug delivery, today announced that the Company's Chief Operating Officer, Hezkiah Tsoory, has been chosen to present at the Fourth International Conference on Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Diabetes ("ATTD 2011") to take place at the Hilton London Metropole hotel in London, UK on February 16-19, 2011. Mr. Tsoory's presentation will take place in Hall at 8:15 am on Saturday, February 19, 2011.

Based on an abstract entitled, "Spring - a patch pump without a motor", Mr. Tsoory's presentation will highlight the Company's new "Spring Hybrid" insulin pump solution. The innovative Intellispring™ technology that has been implemented in D. Medical's traditional ADI CSII system has now been transformed into the world's first ever "convertible" continuous insulin delivery system. It is convertible because it can be worn either as a patch pump or as a durable pump.

"Our new Spring Hybrid Patch pump is revolutionary in a number of ways," said Mr. Tsoory. "Among the inherent technology features, are the very small increments in insulin therapy, the alert at any possible occlusion event and the unique air bubble detection system. Going beyond that, this new product provides the user with maximum lifestyle flexibility by allowing an alternative between having tube-free insulin delivery via a skin-patch, or using it as a very small traditional insulin pump. The flexibility of this water-tight device goes even further. Our pump can be used with or without a dedicated remote management tool. The remote unit also serves as a blood glucose meter. Finally, the Spring Hybrid Patch pump offers a brand new industry level of environmental friendliness. The device is comprised of a multiple-use, long-lasting control element that clasps on a single-use drug reservoir. No electronic elements or soldering material are being disposed."

Efri Argaman, D. Medical's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We believe that, right out of the gate, our unique spring-based design provides us with a significant cost-of-goods advantage over the competing pumps on the market that all utilize a motor and gear train. By combining this advantage with a number of unique product features and benefits, we are confident that the Spring Hybrid Patch pump will quickly win the hearts and minds of doctors and patients in our five initial target markets - Mexico and the BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China – commencing in 2011."
