VICTHOM COMMENTS ON THE RECENT MARKET ACTIVITY

QUEBEC, Feb. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - Victhom Human Bionics Inc. ("Victhom" or the "Company", TSX-V: VHB) - At the request of Market Surveillance, the Company wishes to comment on the recent and unusual trading activity in its common shares.  The Company is not aware of any specific information not currently disclosed which might explain the recent trading activity and increase in the market price of its shares. However, the Company would like to inform its investors that its partner, Ossur, during its investors conference call held yesterday concurrent with the release of its 2010 annual financial statements, reconfirmed the information previously announced by the Company that the Power Knee Second Generation would become commercially available in 2011.

In addition and as previously announced by Victhom in its Q-3 press release, Neurostream Technologies, General Partnership has not yet achieved a milestone as per the partnership agreement, a situation that is dependent on a number of factors that are not entirely under the Company's control. The Company's partner has continued to fund Neurostream's operations on a voluntary basis.
