Freehold, NJ, March 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- MEDIFIRST SOLUTIONS, INC. (MFST) (the “Company” or “Medifirst”), a provider of innovative laser technology with its FDA 510(k) cleared Infrared Time Machine TTML-8102000 Laser Thermal Therapeutic Device and a provider of Specialty Pharmacy Drug Consulting Services and Distributor of Dr. Gupta Pharma CBD, is pleased to provide a distribution update.
Regarding international distribution, Medifirst recently announced it is in the final stages of negotiation with a distribution company for distribution rights for its Infrared Laser for Latin America. Medifirst is pleased to announce that it has completed a distribution agreement with Dimex, a Guatemala based distribution company that covers Latin America. Countries that are being evaluated for sales and distribution for the Time Machine Laser include: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic and Panama. Recent market research forecast strong growth in Latin America’s healthcare market, particularly when it comes to medical equipment and device sales.
Commented Medifirst President Bruce J. Schoengood, “We have completed our analysis of the registration process for each country and have identified Guatemala and El Salvador as the first two countries that we will begin prepping for registration for our US FDA cleared laser, which is an all-in-one unit, very effective and easy-to-use. Its benefits and affordability allows us to expand into new international markets such as Latin America. We are excited to be working with Dimex and by the extensive experience they bring.”
Sonia and Craig Van Sickle, owners of Dimex, stated, “We see a great opportunity for the Time Machine Laser in these growing new markets and are honored to have been selected to manage the distribution of a product that offers a revolutionary pain management solution therapy that is affordable and accessible. We believe there is a great need for all-natural and drug-free pain solutions in Latin America and we are thrilled to be introducing the Laser to bring new solutions for people who suffer from pain.”
Dr. Ronald L. Rubin, Medical Director for Medifirst, commented, “After five exciting years of clinical trials and patient care, we have seen the Time Machine Laser decrease and eliminate pain in the great majority of injuries whether at home, work, car or on the playing field. The efficacy and availability of our Laser is most timely with the worldwide opioid addiction crisis with far too many resultant deaths. We are committed to our mission to treat as many people as possible who are suffering with acute and chronic pain.”
