Wellness Center USA Inc. Signs Agreement to Acquire Psoria-Shield Inc.

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wellness Center USA Inc. (OTCQB/OTCBB: WCUI), a Schaumburg IL based healthcare and nutraceutical company, today announced the signing of a share exchange agreement to acquire Psoria-Shield Inc. (PSI), a Tampa, FL based developer and manufacturer of UltraViolet (UV) phototherapy devices for the treatment of skin diseases.


Psoria-Shield's FDA cleared, patent-pending flagship product "Psoria-Light®" is the first deep UV LED "Targeted Phototherapy" device to effectively treat Psoriasis, Eczema, Alopecia Areata, Vitiligo and other ultraviolet-treatable skin diseases affecting an estimated 11% of the world population.  

Psoria-Light is the latest accomplishment of Psoria-Shield's medical engineering team, the same team which previously developed over 40 FDA cleared, CE marked, ISO manufactured Class II medical devices sold worldwide. Psoria-Light is "Made in the USA" at Psoria-Shield's FDA-registered manufacturing facility in Tampa, FL under their ISO 13485 certified quality system.

"The Psoria-Shield acquisition creates shareholder value through sales revenue potential as well as new product development to our company's pending cognitive neuroscience acquisition, CNS-Wellness. With CNS and now Psoria-Shield, the door is wide open for us to align Wellness Center USA with other innovative healthcare solutions that reinforce our 'well-being of mind and body' strategy," said Andrew Kandalepas, Chairman and CEO of Wellness Center USA Inc. "We're not just acquiring revenue potential, we're acquiring the very best in human resources," Kandalepas continued.     

Psoria-Light® delivers targeted UV phototherapy, either monochromatic UVB or UVA light, using deep UV LEDs.  "Targeted UV Phototherapy," as opposed to general UV phototherapy, involves high dosages of ultraviolet light focused on affected tissue only, clearing disorders such as psoriasis in just six to ten treatments.  The breakthrough LED technology allows medical assistants and technicians to provide targeted UV phototherapy to patients without dangerous light exposure or painful injections. The device is simple to operate by medical assistants and technicians who can generate excellent revenue for the practice, leaving doctors and higher-wage staff free to perform more complex procedures.

Psoria-Light's patent-pending emitter adapts deep UV LED technology jointly developed and utilized for photoelectron generation projects by Stanford University, NASA Ames Research Center, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the European Space Agency (ESA) and DARPA.  Today, Psoria-Light is recognized by the Space Foundation ( exclusively in their market as a Certified Space Technology for this achievement (  "The gift of good health is invaluable and Psoria-Shield is a truly outstanding example of how technologies developed for or improved through space applications provide life-enhancing and life-saving benefits for us all," said Kevin Cook, Space Foundation, Director of Space Awareness Programs.

Psoria-Light's lower cost of ownership reduces costs for healthcare providers, the government healthcare system, and insurance companies allowing increased patient access to this vital therapeutic modality.  Psoria-Light is now shipping to dermatologists, medical solution providers, distributors and resellers both domestic and international.

"We are pleased to join Wellness Center USA in its quest to improve patients' Quality of Life through research and innovative technologies.  This acquisition will increase value for our shareholders, create greater exposure for our products, and harness our design and manufacturing abilities for multiple projects," comments Scot Johnson, President and CEO of Psoria-Shield.
