Business Editors

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 3, 2003

Torbay Holdings Inc (ticker OTCBB: TRBY.OB) reports on new studies in Denmark that the researchers say proves the mouse is the culprit in RSI and repetition is the problem in a study they performed on 3,5000 workers at 11 Danish companies.

Under the title "News in Science 4/3/2003 Computer mouse key culprit in repetitive strain injuries" In extracts from the article by ABC Science News in Australia it was reported, "The more you click your mouse, the greater the chance of suffering from pain, swelling and other repetitive strain injuries in the hand, neck and shoulder, two teams of Danish researchers told a scientific conference."........." The problem is not only the mouse, but performing repetitive tasks," Jensen told reporters attending the 27th International Congress of Occupational Health in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil."

Tom Large, President & CEO stated, "It is unusual for companies to be ahead of the science, but we are, because we work within the science. This is further validation that gripping and clicking a mouse is the causal agent in RSI. With our VHF(TM) Mousing System this requirement is removed. To this end and reassuringly we have received a repeat order from one Californian City Municipality, suggesting their experiences with their first Quill purchase, a couple of months ago, are positive."

"Delays in TV scheduling of a 3 minute slot on a cable health program, which are beyond our control, have set that back to a date to be confirmed this month. This is frustrating but the coverage we are getting is very cost effective and it has provided an opportunity for the recent developments to be included. We are now looking to start the TV ad placement ahead of this event and have made enquiry into the use of a call center to take direct phone sales. We believe this could lower purchasing resistance that a web only response might create."
