    MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 30 /CNW/ - MedX Health Corp., (TSXV.MDX) a global
leader in drug free, non-invasive low level laser and light therapy for tissue
repair and pain relief, today announced its results for the year ended
December 31, 2008
    Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $1,149,478, an 8.9 per
cent increase over 2007 year end revenue of $1,055,792. This revenue also
represents a 49% gain in the last six months of 2008 versus the last six
months of 2007. MedX incurred a loss from continuing operations for the year
of $2,759,627 or $0.11 per share compared to a loss of $2,091,170 or $0.14 per

    "For the first time in many years, MedX continues to post strong
increases versus the previous period in 2007," said Steven Guillen, chief
executive officer and president of MedX Health. "This is a direct result of
two new strategic partnerships with Technology4Medicine and Richmar/Naimco,
which are beginning to generate revenue. We are pleased with the revenue
growth over the last six months of 49% versus the previous year, especially in
light of the difficult market conditions. We expect to continue this trend of
revenue growth in 2009."
