HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Nov. 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iTech Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:IMSU) (Frankfurt:0IM), a medical information technology company, is pleased to announce that CEO Wayne Cockburn has been featured in an exclusive interview by Ms. Lisa Benson for PremierStocks.tv. Ms. Benson and Mr. Cockburn discussed the recent completion of a large clinical study of the Company's Muscle Pattern Recognition (MPR) technology, the Company's commercialization strategy, and the senior management appointment of Karl R. Wolcott as Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

"The interview by the PremierStocks.tv staff provides iTech Medical with a unique platform to explain our MPR technology to the investment community and to broadly outline our commercialization plans for the device, including the recent hiring of Karl Wolcott," said Wayne Cockburn, CEO of iTech Medical. "We are also very pleased with the recent achievements of our research and clinical team and we remain focused in our plans to commercially develop the MPR System as the first quantitative tool for assisting in the diagnosis of the presence or absence of a musculoskeletal dysfunction of the neck and back."

The Company reported that the primary objective of the study, which was completed at the Utah Spine & Joint Center, was to identify unique and reliable surface electromyographic (sEMG) measurements of muscle recruitment patterns of the neck and back during the execution of the well defined motor tasks (body positions) that make up the MPR procedure. "The interest in a research study looking at neck and back pain was, not surprisingly, quite strong," said Mr. Cockburn. "Back pain due to musculoskeletal dysfunctions is one of the most prevalent health problems in the industrialized world and there are tens of millions of sufferers each year looking to the medical community to come up with better ways to diagnose and treat their conditions. We hope to demonstrate through our ongoing clinical work that the MPR System, when used as part of the diagnostic process in patients with neck and back pain related to muscle function, can be a part of the solution to this global problem."

"Finding the causes of neck and back pain is not an easy task and we learned that this is an $80 billion per year problem just in North America," said Kelly Black, President of Premier Media Services Inc. "Patients typically undergo expensive diagnostic tests including CT scans, MRIs, X-rays and nerve function exams. We were very lucky to get the exclusive interview with iTech Medical. I feel the new MPR technology being developed by iTech Medical holds the hope of being able to improve the diagnosis and treatment of neck and back pain with a cost- effective clinical tool that uses proprietary Pattern Recognition software to analyze patterns of muscle recruitment."

MPR is a non-invasive, proprietary technology platform that objectively analyzes patterns of muscle recruitment -- the engagement of muscles in order to perform specific body movements. The MPR technology is currently being developed as a clinical assessment tool that the Company believes can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of back and neck pain -- one of the most common problems faced by a large portion of the world's population.
