Richard Sweat, President/CEO of .decimal said, "The opening of an office in Japan is another example of our dedication to provide cancer patients around the world with innovative treatment solutions."

Japan is the second largest market in the world for medical devices and has a $20 billion medical device industry, with $5 billion in U.S. imports, according to the International Trade Administration. With an increasing number of patients with chronic diseases in Japan, medical devices to treat age-related diseases shows the potential for steady growth.

"After visiting Japan, meeting with medical universities and doctors and reviewing our market research, it was evident which market would be the next opportunity for us to grow globally. It is our understanding that there are over 700 radiation therapy centers and more than 1,000 full-time medical doctors in Japan - a substantial statistic," said Mark Mills, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for .decimal. "We are excited to bring our products to market in Japan and we believe an authorized office is the appropriate next step."

.decimal will be providing cancer institutions in Japan the devices necessary to deliver compensator-based Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, an advanced form for delivering radiation. Compensators provide the maximum dose to the tumor, while providing maximum protection to the surrounding healthy tissues and organs, reducing the risk of acute and chronic damage. .decimal is in the process of being cleared by Japanese regulatory agencies and looks forward to begin offering their products commercially overseas.

"Cancer centers in Japan will soon have the opportunity to enhance their current radiation delivery capabilities through our unique pay-as-you-go, Internet-based manufacturing business model," said Sweat.

.decimal will be represented in Japan by Sam Tabuchi of Enterprise Florida-Japan. The .decimal office will be located at:

    Sagamiya #2 Building 5F
