Experience the Latest "Spring" Product Innovations at ADA Booth 2219

- Company Also Proud to Welcome "Dog4Diabetics" to Booth -

TIRAT CARMEL, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - June 20, 2011) - D. Medical Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ:DMED)(TASE:DMED) is pleased to announce that it will offer a sampling of its recently FDA and Health Canada cleared Spring™ Universal Infusion Set, at the American Diabetes Association's 71st Scientific Sessions being held on June 24-28 in San Diego, CA. The Company will also demonstrate its innovative Spring Zone insulin pump and provide a glimpse of its revolutionary Spring Hybrid Patch Pump.

Spring Universal Infusion Set

The Spring Universal Infusion Set is compatible with most insulin pumps currently available on the market. It is a multi-level system of the latest innovations in materials and miniaturized technology, where each component enhances drug-delivery assurance, while striving to enrich the user experience.

The Spring Universal Infusion Set includes: a "Detach-Detect" mechanism which enhances insulin delivery assurance by alerting the user when the set is detached from the body; a hidden, auto-retractable 28-gauge needle with a trocar tip designed to reduce pain and scarring and to minimize cannula bending potential; and a 360°-connector. By simplifying the insertion process with the one-touch button push, the user and the insurance companies benefit by increasing the odds of the proper insertion on the first try.

"This is a design innovation with real value to all stakeholders in diabetes management," said Zoe Myers, a long-time insulin pump user and D. Medical's Chief Commercial Officer. "Why is the Spring Universal attractive to every insulin pump user? Ask anyone with insulin-dependent diabetes: Would you rather not look at a needle and would you like the peace of mind of knowing that your insulin is being accurately delivered?"

Spring Zone Insulin Delivery System*

The proprietary Intellispring™ technology is at the heart of the Spring Zone Insulin Delivery System functionality. The pocket pump utilizes discrete pressure compensation, drawing the energy for insulin delivery from pressure created when insulin is loaded into the disposable Spring Exclusive infusion set and its spring mechanism is compressed. This ingenious mechanism, backed by the Total Line Control™ (TLC) safety check system, enables failsafe operation and exceptional reliability for continuously controlled and monitored insulin delivery.

Intellispring™ utilizes spring energy as the driving force for insulin delivery. The elimination of motor and gear train results in performance and cost advantages, increased service lifetime and reliability, and substantial weight reduction and size miniaturization. Other key innovative features of the Spring Zone insulin pump include superior blockage and detachment detection, environmental (pressure and temperature) adaptability and continuous insulin dose delivery check.

Spring Hybrid Patch Pump*

The innovative Intellispring™ technology that has been implemented in D. Medical's Traditional ADI Insulin Pump system has now been transformed into the world's first ever "hybrid" continuous insulin delivery system. It is hybrid because it can be worn either as a patch pump or a traditional, durable insulin pump.

"Our new Spring Hybrid Patch pump is revolutionary in a number of ways," said Hezkiah Tsoory, D. Medical's Chief Operating Officer. "Among the inherent technology features are the smallest increments in insulin therapy, the alert at any possible blockage event and the unique air bubble detection system. Going beyond that, this new product provides the user with the greatest lifestyle flexibility by allowing an alternative between having tube-free insulin delivery on a skin-patch, or using it as the smallest available traditional insulin pump. The flexibility of this IPX 8 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, soldering material or batteries are being disposed of; the only waste consists of a tiny plastic cartridge. This energy-saving, motorless system may run for about thirty days on a standard AAA battery."
