Anti-Snoring Study Confirms Benefit in Work Setting, Where Daytime Safety and Performance of Personnel are Critically Important

    CALGARY, May 20 /CNW/ - Calgary-based MPowRx Health and Wellness Products
Inc. today announced the results of a study of its anti-snoring device
involving the Peace Hills Emergency Services (EMS) Unit. EMS staff often sleep
on-site during their shift, and snoring can have a serious impact on sleeping
patterns, impacting daytime safety and effectiveness not only of the snorer
but other staff who are awakened by the sound of snoring in the night.

    The study survey questions and results were:

    -  Are you satisfied with this treatment option? (Yes -100%; No - 0%)
    -  Do you feel more rested and alert the next day after using the
       MPowRx(TM) Snoring Solution? (Yes - 100%; No - 0%)
    -  Have your colleagues in the Peace Hills unit noticed any difference in
       your snoring? (Yes - 50%; No - 0%; Unsure - 50%)
    -  Will you continue to use the MPowRx(TM) Snoring Solution? (Yes - 100%;
       No - 0%)
    -  Would you recommend the MPowRx(TM) Snoring Solution to Other EMS units
       and Family & Friends (Both - 100%; Neither - 0%)

    "Snoring was a significant problem in our unit at one time, as our staff
slept in dorms and several staff snored", says Keri Huot, Manager Peace Hills
EMS unit. "I take comfort in knowing that my team is more alert and rested
during their shift, as the safety of my staff and the community we serve is
critically important. I recommended the device to my husband who snores and
for the first time in years, I am getting a good night's sleep at home".
    "Snoring is a common sleep disorder affecting 60 million people in North
America alone. We have seen tremendous benefit to snorers' in family settings
since the launch of the product in April 2008, however, the EMS trial confirms
that the MPowRx(TM) Snoring Solution may have broader utility in work setting
such as those of professional sports teams and the military, where safety and
performance are paramount", says Gijs van Rooijen, co-founder of MPowRx Health
and Wellness Products Inc.
    The MPowRx(TM) Snoring Solution was developed by Dr. Leslie Dort, Calgary
dentist and noted dental sleep medicine researcher who conducted human
clinical trials to demonstrate the effectiveness of the MPowRx(TM) Snoring
Solution (Journal of Sleep & Breathing, 2008). The device is registered as a
Class I medical device with Health Canada.
