TIRAT CARMEL, Israel, Jan. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- D. Medical Industries Ltd. (Nasdaq:DMED - News) (TASE:DMED - News) ("D. Medical" or "Company"), a medical device company engaged through its subsidiaries in the research, development, manufacture and sale of innovative products for diabetes treatment and drug delivery, today announced that the Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary Spring Health Solution Ltd., received a CE Mark approval for its Spring(TM) Zone Insulin Delivery System. "Spring Zone" replaces D. Medical's first generation Spring ADI insulin pump.
The proprietary Intellispring(TM) technology at the heart of the "Spring Zone" Insulin Delivery System results in unique performance advantages such as superior blockage and detachment detection, environmental (pressure and temperature) adaptability and continuous insulin dose delivery check. This mechanism, backed by the Total Line Control(TM) (TLC) safety check system, enables failsafe operation and exceptional reliability for continuously controlled and monitored insulin delivery.
Other key design features that differentiate the Spring Zone from all other models on the market make it the smallest, lightest and quietest durable insulin pump.
Hezkiah Tsoory, D. Medical's Chief Operating Officer, commented: "The CE Mark approval is an important milestone that comes at the perfect time, just as the company is looking for a worldwide partner with whom to commercialize its pump technology. We continue gaining ground with European and North American market acceptance of the Spring Universal Infusion Set. Our accomplishments in refining and scaling our manufacturing capacity, as well as widening the distribution channels, will pave the way for our next round of innovations."
