WORK RECOVERY INC. ANNOUNCES NEW ASSESSMENT PRODUCT TUCSON, Ariz., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Work Recovery Inc.
(NASDAQ: WORK), a Tucson-based provider of advanced rehabilitation technology and a national network of testing clinics for the industrially injured, announced today the addition of the MEED 3000 System to its product line. The MEED 3000 System is a portable muscle strength testing device, designed to be used at employer job sites and rehabilitation clinics for assessing physical strength requirements of workers on the job.
The MEED 3000 System will provide a new level of technology for job analysts working with employers to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. The ADA, which will become effective in July 1992, for employers with 25 or more employees, will require that employers conduct job analyses to establish the essential functions required of a worker for each job within the company. Work Recovery Inc.'s introduction of the MEED 3000 System to this emerging market will interface with its existing ERGOS(TM) Work Simulator and Transition Work Stations, currently used in more than 100 rehabilitation facilities throughout the United States and Canada. Thomas L. Brandon, president of Work Recovery Inc., stated that "the MEED 3000 System is one of the most thoroughly researched products of its kind in the United States, having been featured in several juried journals." Gary Smidt, Ph.D., PT, FAPTA, the lead researcher and inventor of the MEED 3000 System, is professor of physical therapy education, College of Medicine, The University of Iowa. Smidt is a prolific publisher of research related to human musculo-skeletal assessment. The MEED 3000 System provides Work Recovery Inc., an exciting opportunity to expand its market into the emerging home health care/geriatric rehabilitation field. Brandon commented as follows: "Imagine the impact of being able to objectively monitor elderly patients' neuro-muscular strength, essential to their activities of daily living. The use of the MEED 3000 System by physicians, home-visit rehabilitation nurses and nursing homes could assist in maintaining safe mobility in this growing segment of the U.S. populatiovices and sales throughout the 1990s. Work Recovery Inc. is currently in negotiations with a number of major universities throughout the United States for technology transfer to the expanding rehabilitation market. Additional announcements will be forthcoming concerning these new products. -0- 5/4/92 /CONTACT: Thomas L.
