Somatic Systems, Inc. Sponsors Battlefield Healthcare Conference

NORTHAMPTON, MA — (Marketwire - February 5, 2009) — Somatic Systems, Inc. (SMAS - news) is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the 9th Annual Battlefield Healthcare Conference.

IDGA's Battlefield Healthcare conference is a high profile 4-day event, March 30 through April 2, 2009, providing a platform for reviewing objectives and program initiatives to provide combat casualty care for the US military. The Conference details best practices and current developments in combat healthcare and rehabilitative care as well as facilitates a forum where treatment initiatives and advanced research is discussed, debated, and developed.

The Conference's audience is comprised of senior-level professionals from military units and organizations, government agencies, contractors, technology service providers and academia. Attendees will include directors responsible for medical readiness, education and training, health services, medical plans & requirements, research and development, and case management.

In addition to the other exposure provided by the sponsorship, Somatic Systems will be specially showcased as an exhibitor throughout the Conference, presenting demonstrations and other detailed information about the company's revolutionary Somatics pain-care treatment system. Somatic Systems will also be branded and prominently displayed and featured on-site throughout the Conference, and on IDGA's website.

Sponsorship of and showcasing at the Conference comes just as Somatic Systems is beginning to provide service for US military veterans. Last month, the company announced they would launch their first provision of Clinical Somatics services in the Denver, Colorado area starting the end of February. They also announced talks with the Veterans Administration and Tricare, the military health insurance plan, regarding implementation details of insurance coverage reimbursements for the services.

The Battlefield Healthcare Conference (http://www.battlefieldhealthcare.com) is a valuable element in Somatic Systems' efforts to implement large-scale treatment of the 70 million soldiers, veterans, and dependents in the military health care system using its advanced Clinical Somatics pain care and injury treatment methods. Somatic Systems obtained military contractor status in October and registration in the National Provider registry this month. The expected course of this progress is full military approval and health coverage for Somatic Systems' Clinical Somatics treatments, clinics, practitioners, and treatment service programs.

The Military Chronic Pain Crisis

In October, Somatic Systems announced it was working to provide its proprietary Clinical Somatics pain-care services for US military hospitals and the Veterans Administration. In addition to seeking in-house arrangements at bases and facilities, the company is preparing to rollout multiple clinics at military base locations throughout the US, to provide easy access to Clinical Somatics services at a time when the US military is strongly seeking satisfactory pain treatment solutions such as Clinical Somatics -- and following a wave of legislation including the Military Pain Care Act of 2008, which requires the Department of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Health and Human Services and the Surgeon General of the United States to implement and maintain a pain care initiative in all military health care facilities and for all active and retired military personnel, dependents, and survivors.

Nearly 26 million living Americans have served in the military, and pain is the most common symptom and cause of disability amongst veterans, with more than 40% of returning service members reporting musculoskeletal pain-related problems and symptoms. Additionally, long-term sufferers as well as family members and other dependents of all ages also face pain and other musculoskeletal problems; and this population totals over 70 million people, served by the Veterans Administration. In the face of this, military officials, medical authorities, and government officials have reported frustration that the military does not yet have a satisfactory pain care program in place.
