Smart Medical Technology, Inc. Awarded Novation Contract for Ground-breaking Liftaem(TM) System that Aids Lifting and Transferring Patients
Date:11/12/2007

DARIEN, Ill., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart Medical Technology. Inc. has been awarded a five-year contract with Novation, the leading healthcare contracting services company of VHA Inc. and the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), two national health care alliances, for its Liftaem(TM) safe-patient-handling system.

The agreement makes Liftaem(TM) available to more than 2,500 health care organizations, effective Jan. 1, 2008. "By using proper equipment such as Liftaem(TM), hospitals not only decrease the risk of injury to patients but they are also helping to protect the health of their staff and decrease the potential for back injuries caused by lifting patients," said Sandy Wise, Senior Director for Novation.

Liftaem(TM) enables healthcare professionals to easily transfer a patient from a bed to a stretcher or other surface on a single-patient-use inflatable mat -- even when the patient weighs up to 1,000 lbs. It's the only product of its kind featuring single-patient-use mats, which prevent cross-contamination -- a priority in health care.

"Our vision is to develop culture-changing innovations to better manage and monitor healthcare environments," states Smart Medical Technology Chairman and CEO James Patrick. "We believe therapy and safety should always share the same platform."

The inflatable Liftaem(TM) mats are placed on the patients' beds when they are admitted and remain with them for the duration of their stay. Carts used for inflation are placed throughout the hospital in areas with high numbers of patient transfers.

Smart Medical Technology developed the Liftaem(TM) to address the serious problems associated with manually lifting, transferring and repositioning patients, including:

-- Nurses lose a combined average of 750,000 work days each year as a

result of back injury, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor

Statistics.

-- Patients may suffer pain, skin tears, abrasions, dislocation
