HealthSonix Commences New Clinical Trials to Expand Medical Claims for AquaSonix Therapy

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 9, 2006 -- HealthSonix, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HSXI) (FRANKFURT: H7S) today announced it has commenced a new AquaSonix Therapy clinical trial with patients suffering with pain from osteoarthritis of the knee. The study group has been randomly divided into two groups: one group receives the actual sound pressure wave treatments, while the second control or placebo group, does not.

"This clinical study is a Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind, Single-Centre, Eight Week Trial to Baseline," stated Dr. David Venturi, Medical Director of HealthSonix. "The study will examine pain, function and stiffness levels using the WOMAC questionnaire and life style changes using the SF36 instrument to monitor the patient's progress after 5 and 10 and 15 treatment sessions. A physician's examination and radiographs have been used to establish the osteoarthritis of the knee diagnosis."

"This study is part of our on-going research efforts to gather more condition-specific scientific evidence for our patent pending sound pressure wave technology, and thereby initiate application of additional medical claims, for disease specific chronic and acute pain conditions," added Dr. Venturi.

AquaSonix Therapy is a breakthrough medical treatment for people with pain, reduced mobility and diminishing flexibility. It's a therapeutic water program that combines sound pressure waves with individualized low impact exercises in warm water therapy pools.
