LOS ANGELES, Sep. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Signalife, Inc. (Amex: SGN) has announced that the legendary Earvin "Magic" Johnson has joined Athletes for Life ("AFL") to endorse ambulatory heart testing with AFL's flagship choice, Signalife's Fidelity 100 and its related products and technologies. One of the greatest basketball superstars of all time, Mr. Johnson has also had unparalleled business successes after winning multiple championships from college to the Los Angeles Lakers to the Olympic Gold Medal. "Magic" has joined the likes of Jim Brown, Reggie Bush, Joe Theisman, Willie Gault, Thomas "Hitman" Hearns and countless other current and former professional athletes in fighting cardiovascular disease -- the number one killer in the United States. They wish to fight it by prevention -- not by watching their teammates and friends die. This is a staple of AFL and Signalife.
Signalife, Inc. President Dr. Lowell Harmison -- an AFL member, a former collegiate running back, and former Principal Deputy of the United States DHHS -- commented that "I am personally overjoyed that Earvin "Magic" Johnson -- as he is historically famous for -- has shown the field of vision to understand that something is wrong when we have millions of people being deprived of the ability to obtain a complete 12-lead ECG signal of their own heart when they are moving (ambulatory). The heart is a muscle. To be unable to properly test that muscle when it is "at work" is -- we believe -- the cause of significant failures in detection of disease. This is an undisputed fact."
"To have somebody with Mr. Johnson's background and achievement become a part of this cause is very gratifying to me, to all of the 50+ founding members of Athletes for Life and to the Board controlling the only device capable of capturing the data, seeing the signals and leveling the playing field -- Signalife's Fidelity 100," added Dr. Harmison.
