BEIJING, May 24 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Dehaier Medical Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: DHRM), an emerging leader in the development, assembly, marketing and sale of medical products in China, announced today an exclusive distributor agreement for HEYER Medical's Cumulus ultrasonic nebulizer in China. Dehaier is authorized to distribute all models of this product.
HEYER Cumulus is suitable for the treatment of respiratory tract conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, chronic respiratory infections and others. The unit can be used for all aspects of respiratory treatment and air humidification. With a full range of accessories, the Cumulus Nebulizer is tailored for optimum application in hospitals, surgeries and at home.
HEYER Cumulus is designed to be extremely easy to clean. All application parts and the ultrasonic cup can be dismantled in seconds. In addition, all parts (including the ultrasonic cup assembly) that may be subject to patient contamination can be easily disinfected or autoclaved.
Mr. Volker Muller, General Manager of HEYER Medical (Beijing) Ltd., said, "We are very pleased that Dehaier will represent HEYER products in China. Dehaier is a premier medical device company that has a powerful distribution network in China. We believe this exclusive distribution agreement is an excellent business expansion opportunity for both companies."
Mr. Ping Chen, Dehaier's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our new partnership with HEYER Medical further supplements our product line for treatment of respiratory diseases. This not only provides Dehaier with additional highly sophisticated products, but also widens the experience of our marketing and service teams. This exclusive agreement provides us with access to the market segment in China for nebulizer products, which we estimate to be about $30 million per year. The Cumulus is an ideal product addition to our Homecare Medical Products segment that already includes homecare ventilators, oxygen generators, sleep screening systems and our Dehaier rhinitis hyperthermia device.
"We estimate that on a global basis, the fast growing market for respiratory and oxygen homecare products is in excess of $2.0 billion per year," Chen said.
