Expands reseller base across Asia

MedaPhor Group plc (AIM: MED) (‘MedaPhor’), the global provider of advanced ultrasound education solutions for medical professionals, today announces that ScanTrainer, the advanced ultrasound training simulation system, has been released in Mandarin Chinese and Japanese.

Management believe this key milestone represents an exciting opportunity to target sales within both China and Japan and follows the Company’s addition of two local reseller partners – Lusun Wyatt in China and Nihon Light Service Inc in Japan.

Stuart Gall, CEO, of MedaPhor, comments:

“This announcement signals our continued commitment to building strategic business partnerships in our key markets. Both China and Japan offer huge future potential for the ScanTrainer range of simulators and we look forward to building profitable partnerships with all our resellers around the world.”

Hiroshi Baba, President of Nihon Light Service Inc, comments,

“ScanTrainer is one of the world’s leading medical training simulators and we believe there is tremendous opportunity to expand sales of the system in Japan. Ultrasound is a growing modality in Japan and ScanTrainer offers a world-leading solution to training the large numbers of sonographers, midwives and doctors who will require these skills over the coming years.”

Karen Sun, Managing Director of Lusun Wyatt, comments,

“We are delighted to be working with MedaPhor in China. We believe ScanTrainer offers a best-in-class solution to the huge problem of training Chinese doctors the hard to learn image acquisition skills required to become proficient in ultrasound scanning. We are very excited about the system’s potential in the Chinese market.”
