South Korea-based Neofect looks to meet increasing customer demand focused on the rehabilitation of stroke victims and Parkinson's disease victims

DRAPER, Utah, Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (FLXT) today announced receipt of multiple

and recurring purchase orders from award winning medical rehabilitation technology provider, Neofect.

Neofect's FDA approved RAPAEL platform is an advanced medical IoT application. The RAPAEL Smart Glove System features an array of Bend SensorsŪ among other technologies, and measures hand, wrist and individual finger movement. Data is transmitted via Bluetooth and the software creates training augmented reality games customized to a patient's abilities and goals. It has been adapted to serve patients spanning a wide range of ages - adults and children.

The most common end users are stroke victims and Parkinson's disease victims. 15 million people per year suffer from a stroke. In the US alone, someone has a stroke every 40 seconds. It is a leading cause of long-term disability, costing the national economy $34 billion.

This year has proven pivotal in Neofects' growth as they expanded their global presence and increased marketshare in their target markets catering to a growing customer base. A base comprised of hospitals, clinics and "out of clinic" or at home patients. The latter is a group showing rapid adoption leveraging this engaging technology at home.

According to Paul Sexauer, Flexpoint Vice President of Sales & Marketing, "Neofect's growth is attributable to multiple advantages. Among them are their strong, visionary leadership, an innovative technology platform, a creative and increasing software portfolio as well as some creative marketing and pricing programs. Flexpoint is proud to be a partner to Neofect."

Next year is expected to be a breakthrough year and bring further collaborative design/development efforts for state-of-the-art and next generation technologies with Neofect. Sexauer further commented, "As with many of our partners, we engage with and support their design teams in any way we can to help them achieve success. To be an integral part of that success is always quite special."

In 2016, the Bend SensorŪ was selected for use in the RAPAEL Smart Glove System. The system was recognized as a 2017 CES award winner for innovation in the Health, Fitness and Biotech category.

Flexpoint continues to regularly receive requests for Bend SensorsŪ for a wide array of consumer electronics applications. As previously announced, the company is actively expanding their global distribution to include direct customers, resellers and distributors which cater to these and other market segments.
