INTERNATIONAL BIOANALOGICS BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS AND PREVENTIVE MEDICINE SYSTEMS CHOSEN FOR PILOT STUDY BY U.S. ARMY

 BEAVERTON, Ore., Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- International BioAnalogics Systems Inc. (VSE: IBO), developers and marketers of proprietary Preventive Medicine Systems, has reached an agreement to install its patented ElectroLipoGraph(R) Body Composition Analysis System and its Health Management Lab(TM) preventive medicine system in a pilot study at the U.S. Army Physical Fitness School at Fort Benning, Georgia. The pilot will begin in January 1994.
 Albert W. Libke, M.D., Chairman of International BioAnalogics said, "The Fitness School is responsible for training 8,000 U.S. Army Fitness Specialists and is developing a new preventive medicine program for 2,600,000 Army active duty personnel, Army Reserve, National Guard, dependents and retirees. Colonel David White, Ph.D., Director of the School and a leader in preventive medicine, believes that the accurate measurement of the percentage of body fat is the cornerstone of any fitness or prevention program. Our patented (U.S. and Canada) ElectroLipoGraph System ("the ELG") has established the scientific validity of its body composition measurement technology. This validity, when combined with its ease of operation and reproducibility should make the ELG an ideal component of the Armed Forces Fitness Program.
 International BioAnalogics Systems Inc. is the developer and marketer of proprietary Preventive Medicine hardware and software systems focused on health care cost containment. In addition to the ElectroLipoGraph System, the Company's technology includes the Pregnancy Induced Hypertension Prevention System (PIHPS), which screens proactively for the dangerous hypertension of pregnancy and the Electronic Interpretive Stethoscope System (the ESG), which converts heart sounds into digital data for a standardized analysis by software that eliminates human error in interpretation.
