Neuro Resource Group: New Publication of a Peer-Reviewed Clinical Trial

Improvements in Recovery Rates After Interactive Stimulation Suggests Reduction in the Length of In-Patient Stay

PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - December 10, 2007) - Neuro Resource Group (NRG), the manufacturer of InterX® products, announced the publication of a peer-reviewed clinical trial in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (Br), Vol 89-B11, Issue 11.

The study examines the effect of interactive neurostimulation in the post-operative recovery of patients with fracture of the femur. A random controlled trial (RCT) in a group of 60 patients provides outcome measurements of VAS pain, Brief Pain Inventory and an overall assessment of outcome by the surgeon. There were significantly better results for the patients receiving treatment with InterX® in addition to standard rehab care (repeated measures analysis of variance, P < .001).

Since its formation in 2004, Neuro Resource Group (NRG) has been committed to investing its resources into the research of the effects and associated outcomes observed with InterX® Therapy as an adjunct to standard rehabilitation. A total of 8 random controlled trials (RCT) have already been completed and several more are in progress. A study that examines the 'influence of neurostimulation in a transected medial collateral ligament in sheep' was recently presented at the 6th Combined Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society and is due to be published in 2008.

"We are excited about the findings of this study," said Sean Browne, President and CEO of NRG. "This is one more significant clinical study that reinforces what thousands of patients tell us daily. This study further supports our mission of helping people redefine their expectations for an active life," said Browne.
