QUEBEC, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Victhom Human Bionics Inc., "Victhom" (TSX: VHB), announced today that its Neurobionix division has achieved ISO 13485:2003 certification for its Quality System Design Control. This certification, an internationally recognized management system standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), complements the earlier certification that the Neurobionix division had received back in August 2008 for its manufacturing activities. The combination of both certifications guarantees that the design, development and manufacturing functions of the Company meet the highest quality standards known worldwide for implantable grade medical devices, including neuromodulation systems currently being developed for commercial release late 2009.
"This certification is an additional achievement resulting from the focus the Company has put in the repositioning of the Neurobionix division to become a product development engine capable of bringing innovative products to the market at quality standards expected by the implantable medical device industry and generally associated with larger companies", said Mr. Nader Kameli, Chief Operating Officer of the Neurobionix division.
Victhom discovers, develops and manufactures bionic devices involved in the treatment of a variety of physical and physiological dysfunctions. Victhom's Neurobionix division focuses on the development and commercialization of technologies and products involving implantable devices that feature neurosensing and neurostimulation components, integrated with artificial intelligence.
