VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 13, 2014) - Pyng Medical Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PYT), an award-winning developer of trauma and resuscitation products for emergency, combat and critical care personnel, announces the signing of nine new distributors. Each distributor will market one or more of Pyng's three new products to the pre-hospital and hospital markets:
- FASTResponder™ Sternal Intraosseous (IO) Device
- T-PODResponder™ Pelvic Stabilization Device
- MATResponder™ Tourniquet (launching Spring 2014)
"Pyng has been very successful in providing intraosseous, pelvic stabilization and tourniquet solutions to military personnel for well over a decade. Now, we've completely customized and launched new solutions to meet the needs of pre-hospital and hospital personnel as well," explains Mark Hodge, President and CEO of Pyng. "These nine new distributors we've brought on board have deep experience marketing medical devices to these target markets and will enable Pyng to more quickly get our new devices into the hands of such emergency and critical care personnel."
The company believes that these new distributors will enable it to gain further civilian-side market penetration than it has in the past, within most regions of the United States. The new distributors were specifically selected based upon their experience marketing medical devices to the pre-hospital and hospital markets, their complementary and non-competitive product portfolio, and their established relationships with emergency medical services and critical care hospital customers.
