Jul. 21, 2011 (Marketwire Canada) --
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- Pyng Medical Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PYT) announced today that the T-POD® has been chosen by Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, through Pyng's exclusive dealer in the UK, Lewis's Medical Supplies, as their standardized pelvic stabilization device. Yorkshire Ambulance NHS is one of 12 Ambulance Trusts in the UK. After undergoing an extensive search and trial period on available pelvic stabilization products in the market, the T-POD® was chosen for Yorkshire Ambulance's frontline fleet of ambulances.
"We are very pleased to represent and provide a product with such high standards as the T-POD®," commented Kerry Malseed, Business Development Manager for Lewis's Medical Supplies. "The ease of application and universal sizing were just some of the many qualities that made T-POD® stand out from its competition."
Servicing a diverse geographical area from major cities to sparsely populated rural communities, Yorkshire Ambulance attends to more traffic collisions involving major trauma than any other ambulance service in the country. "Yorkshire Ambulance Service's need for a pelvic stabilization device was unique. Servicing rural areas that are a popular with the biking fraternity, they needed a pelvic stabilization device that provided full compression across the entire width of the pelvis and a device that didn't cause much movement of the casualty when applying. The T-POD® provided these features and more," added Mr. Malseed.
