LITTLETON, CO — (MARKET WIRE) — 03/23/2004 — Zynex Medical Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: ZYNX) has added a revolutionary new mode to their NeuroMove™ for spinal cord injury patients. Zynex’s patent pending product, the NeuroMove™, has been used by numerous stroke victims since late 2003. The new mode is five times as sensitive as the stroke recovery mode enabling the identification of minute traces of brain to muscle activity.

As in stroke patients, spinal cord injury patients may have not used some extremities for years. Instead of simply stimulating the muscles, the NeuroMove™ teaches patients to realize their potential by giving them a “reward,” or muscle stimulation, when an attempt is made by the brain to engage these muscles. This gives patients hope of regaining the ability to walk or use of their hands.

Thomas Sandgaard, CEO of Zynex Medical Holdings, Inc. commented, “We are extremely excited to introduce this ground-breaking therapy for spinal cord injury patients. Our unique approach to therapy is helping patients gain mobility in cases that other therapy has proven ineffective.”
