HealthSonix Develops New Treatment Protocols for Dupuytren's Contracture; Patients Show Positive Results

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 15, 2007 -- HealthSonix, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HSXI) (FRANKFURT: H7S) today announced that it has achieved successful results in the treatment of patients with Dupuytren's Contracture using its sound pulse technology.

Dupuytren's Contracture, a disease of the palmar fascia, results in the thickening and shortening of fibrous bands in the hands and fingers. The incidence of Dupuytren's contracture is highest in Caucasians, historically those of Celtic descent. It most often affects the ring or little finger, sometimes both, and often in both hands. Although the exact cause is unknown it is genetic in nature, meaning it runs in families. This condition is seven times more common in men than women. The disorder may occur suddenly but more commonly progresses slowly over a period of years. The disease usually doesn't cause symptoms until after the age of 40.

Without treatment, such as surgical intervention, the Contracture can become so severe that the patient cannot straighten his/her finger, and eventually they may not be able to use their hand effectively.

"We were quite pleasantly surprised by the fact that our sound pulses were able to relieve some of the stiffness and in some cases even restore mobility," said Dr. David Venturi, Medical Director of HealthSonix. "More clinical work will commence shortly to further study and expand on treatment outcomes," added Dr. Venturi.

HealthSonix sound pulse technology has now been made available for home use in the state of the art, self-administered enSonix@home medical device. The enSonix@home device will be available online May 22, 2007, when the company launches its new online store:
