FAIRFIELD, Conn., Dec. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Competitive Technologies, Inc. (OTCQX:CTTC) today announced that its Calmare® pain therapy medical device has recently garnered positive media attention, including a feature story on Salt Lake City, Utah-based KSL-TV, with follow on coverage picked up by the Associated Press.
