About Celleration, Inc.:

Celleration, Inc., a privately held medical device company, was founded in 1999 to develop and commercialize its therapeutic ultrasound platform. The patented MIST Technology delivers non-contact, low-frequency, low-intensity ultrasound to the patient's injured soft tissue in a painless fashion. The chronic diabetic foot ulcer market had been the Company's initial focus. MIST Therapy(R) has since expanded to various hard to heal, chronic wounds benefiting from higher incidence of complete healing in less time than standard of care. The end results, improving patient outcomes at a lower cost to the health care industry. In addition to the Company's prospective, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled multi-center study in diabetic foot ulcers, which resulted in a statistically significant improvement in the rate of wound closure and time to wound closure, numerous independent clinical researchers without funding from the Company has further validated this value proposition.
