Quotes

Mr. Ping Chen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dehaier Medical stated, "We are excited about this breakthrough for our respiratory business. After persistent efforts on R&D, CFDA certification and dedication to market activities for more than three years, we have successfully delivered our sleep respiratory systems to medical institutions. We believe that it will be an effective supplement to the traditional OSAS diagnosis in the medical field. We foresee that the application of this system will effectively increase outpatient volume for sleep monitoring and diagnosing and reduce purchasing costs associated with large-scale diagnosis equipment PSG. We also expect disposable PPG sensors will generate continuous cash flow for the Company. As for the patients, sleep respiratory diagnosis have been covered by national insurance and patients will be only charged for the affordable PPG sensor. Furthermore, patient waiting time, usually from three to six months, for hospital beds should be cut dramatically, as the system makes earlier diagnosis and treatment available."
