Date:12/21/2009

AKRON, Ohio, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- William "Bill" Christy, a veteran of five successful medical device start-up companies, has been named chief executive officer of SpineMatrix, an Akron, Ohio-based medical technology company specializing in advanced spinal diagnostics. He joins the company after serving as president and CEO of AOI Medical, a developer of medical devices for the treatment of osteoporotic spine disorders.

Christy brings 23 years of medical device industry research and development, sales, marketing, and global reach to SpineMatrix. Throughout his career, he has served as founder and CEO of Ortheon Medical LLC, a company that focused on orthopedic tendon repair; founder and CEO of ESD Medical LLC, a developer of tubal ligation products, which was transacted to U.S. Surgical Corp.; and founder and CEO of Synergistic Medical Technologies Inc, a laparoscopic product company that was transacted to Ethicon Endo-Surgery. Christy has been instrumental in launching 20 new medical devices to the marketplace. He also holds more than 20 issued and published patents.

"Bill's extensive professional experience in the medical industry and as an entrepreneur is the perfect fit for our expansion objectives," said Jeff Krauss, chairman of SpineMatrix's board of directors. "He knows exactly the right steps in guiding the company through its expanded launch in the marketplace and will shepherd us through this crucial growth phase."

SpineMatrix's innovative technology and market opportunity are what attracted Christy to the company. "Spine care desperately needs more accurate diagnostic tools, and the healthcare industry is in search of ways to remove cost from the system and improve the quality of care. I believe SpineMatrix can have a major impact on both fronts and am excited by the opportunity," the new CEO said.

Christy received his bachelor's degree from the University of Central Florida and earned his MBA
