Date:8/29/2012

OREM, Utah, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of the production of 10,000 devices, Aribex®, Inc, worldwide leader in handheld X-ray technologies, has donated their 10,000th NOMAD® unit to the Christian Medical & Dental Associations (CMDA). Headquartered in Bristol, Tennessee, CMDA centers much of their work on humanitarian outreach—the common denominator of both organizations.

The donation was announced today during a press conference at CMDA headquarters in Bristol, and featured representatives from both CMDA and Aribex.

"The NOMAD handheld X-ray was created in response to humanitarian needs," said Ken Kaufman, President and CFO of Aribex. "We thought it appropriate to donate this historic unit to CMDA, an organization that does so much wonderful work among those who need the help so desperately."

CMDA will utilize the NOMAD as a diagnostic tool by dentists and dental students as part of its Global Health Outreach program. CMDA schedules 45 trips to 25 countries each year. In addition, CMDA helps train dentists in emerging nations, lectures at international dental schools and is developing a ministry for disaster relief.

"We're grateful for the capability the Aribex donation will provide CMDA," said Dr. Peter E. Dawson, founder of The Dawson Academy, a renowned training center that has provided continuing dental education courses for more than 30 years. "The NOMAD is available at the clinic associated with our teaching center and I am familiar with the advantages it offers. CMDA will put this X-ray device to good use in dozens of humanitarian dental missions."

"Receiving the NOMAD opens the door for CMDA to provide services to our various communities that we have never been able to offer before," said Dr. Jeff Amstutz, Vice President for Dental Ministries and the Peter E. Dawson Chair of Dentistry. "It is a milestone for our ministry and will make a tremendous difference."

"We will also be using the NOMAD to assist Dr. Karen Cline-Parhamovich, the Medical Examiner for the state of Tennessee, in difficult cases to identify remains," continued Amstutz.

Aribex will share the humanitarian outreach journey made by the 10,000th NOMAD on their website, www.aribex.com, where visitors can follow the travels of the NOMAD and CMDA in their focus to bring greater access to care to those who truly need it.

Unlike the conventional wall-mount and portable X-ray systems, NOMAD handheld devices from Aribex are lightweight, rechargeable (battery-powered), and can go anywhere. The NOMAD has rapidly become the X-ray device of choice for dental professionals around the world.
