MedX Health Corp. Increases International Footprint -- Major Milestone in Turkey

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwired - March 31, 2016) - MedX Health Corp. ("MedX" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: MDX), a leading medical device company, MedX Health Corp. announced today that it has received Ministry of Health official registration in Turkey, allowing MedX to sell its SIAscopy based skin assessment systems into this large market.

"Turkey has a population of just under 80 million, it has benefited from significant health care reform, including universal health care, and is a country with increasing incidence of skin cancer; for these reasons MedX established a Representative Office there in 2015," explained Robert von der Porten, CEO.

Through the efforts of its representative, SIAscopy demonstration systems were deployed in IUH, the leading dermatology center in Turkey. MedX's products appeared on Turkish TV http://siascopyturkey.com/default.aspx, and have been exhibited at the Istanbul Bakırkoy municipality CeBit trade show where Dr Zekeyi Kutlubay, a leading dermatologist was the keynote speaker for "Skin Cancer and the Importance of Early Diagnosis."

"I can cordially say that SIAscopy is the best nevus assessment and diagnosis device available," stated Dr. Zekayi Kutlubay, Associate Professor of Dermatology at the Istanbul University Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty Department of Dermatology. "With SIAscopy, it is possible to obtain more quality dermatoscopic images of a nevus and assess its structural features inside the skin; you will make better assessments and therefore have better patient outcomes. In my humble opinion, each Dermatologist should have a Siascopy as part of their practice."

"Endorsements like this should have a very positive impact in building initial SIAscopy sales in Turkey," continued Mr. von der Porten, "we also believe that we will continue to benefit from increasing sales momentum there."
