NOMAD by Aribex Receives Edison Best New Product Award
Date:4/12/2011

OREM, Utah, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aribex, Inc., the worldwide leader in handheld x-ray technologies, has been honored with a Silver Award from the internationally-known 2011 Edison Best New Product Awards™. The winners were announced April 5 during a ceremony at the historic Capitale ballroom in New York City.  The NOMAD® Handheld X-ray System by Aribex was recognized in the Science and Medical Handheld or Miniaturized Devices Segment.

The Edison Awards are known around the world for honoring innovation and excellence in the development, marketing, and launch of new products and services. The awards symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison, inspiring America's drive to remain in the forefront of innovation, creativity, and ingenuity in the global economy.

"This award has great personal meaning for me," said Dr. D. Clark Turner, President and CEO of Aribex and the creator of the NOMAD. "Thomas Edison has always been a hero of mine, so it is especially gratifying to be honored with an award bearing his name."

The NOMAD Handheld X-ray System fills the need for a truly portable, lightweight dental x-ray device. Unlike the bulky wall-mount systems dentists traditionally used, the NOMAD is lightweight, rechargeable, and can go anywhere. The innovative internal shielding and external backscatter shield make the NOMAD so safe the operator can stay chairside with the patient. The NOMAD is rapidly becoming standard equipment in dental offices worldwide with thousands of units now in service.

Dr. Turner's invention has also made access to dental care possible in countless remote humanitarian clinics and missions around the world. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people have benefited world-wide from improved dental care. Dr. Turner founded Aribex as a Utah corporation in 2003 to manufacture and market the device.

"This year's awards recognize a broad array of innovations including far-reaching products, services and technologies that impact daily life," said Edison Awards Steering Committee chair Sarah Miller Caldicott, a great grandniece of Thomas Edison. "The Awards applaud the forward-thinking innovations for which Thomas Edison remains internationally admired. It's exciting to see companies like Aribex continuing his legacy of challenging conventional thinking."
