Another Milestone— More Medical Device Licenses
History was once again made here at SOTA. The Canadian Health Protection Branch (HPB) has issued a Class II Medical Device License for our Silver Pulser and Bio Tuner units. This means that they can be purchased without a Doctor’s prescription. Also, the Medical Device License allows the units to participate in clinical trials and other medical research. Here is our press release:

NEWS RELEASE

Alternative Health Company Gains Government Licensing for Health Devices


SOTA Instruments Inc. is pleased to announce that Health Canada has issued a Medical Device License for their Silver Pulser and Bio-Tuner. Licensing follows extensive use of both units by natural health practitioners and the public for research purposes. Licensing means medical doctors are now free to use SOTA’s Silver Pulser and Bio Tuner in their practice. As Class II Medical Devices both units are available without the need of a prescription. “We are pleased to gain licensing approval for both our Silver Pulser and Bio Tuner so quickly after the licensing of our Magnetic Pulser,” states company president, Russ Torlage.

SOTA Instruments Inc. is a privately owned Canadian-based company that specializes in the manufacture and design of leading-edge electronic products for the natural health market.

The use of microcurrents of electricity and TENS devices has gained increasingly favorable attention in recent years as non-invasive, non-toxic, healing modalities. SOTA’s units are designed for ease of use, as they are portable and priced affordably for the consumer. The Silver Pulser, Bio Tuner and Magnetic Pulser come with complete operating instructions and are safe and simple to operate.

Politics of Health and the FTC
Many of you may have heard that the US Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov) contacted SOTA on June 13, 2000. We have waited until now to inform everyone because we didn't want to jeopardize our case with the FTC. However we feel it is important that we share with you this information so you can understand what we and others go through to bring out non-mainstream natural health products. The original letter from the FTC opens with the statement “The staff of the Federal Trade Commission’s Southwest Region is conducting an inquiry into advertising and promotional activities of SOTA Instruments Inc. relating to its products...”

To summarize, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) has concluded and charged SOTA Instruments Inc. (“SOTA”) with engaging in deceptive acts and practices in violation of Sections 5 and 12 of the FTC Act. This government agency deems they are acting in your “the public’s” best interest as they believe SOTA has caused you “substantial injury” by having an internet link from our website www.sotainstruments.com to another website. They believe substantial injury occurred because the other website posted letters from customers of SOTA that shared how the SOTA products had helped them in their lives.

The charges are very serious, and of course we believe the FTC is wholly wrong in this case. We have dedicated an entire web page to this so you can become knowledgeable and informed on our progress. It is a case about our rights and freedoms. Many other companies on the Internet have been targeted by the FTC through this “Internet sweep” as the FTC calls it; and many companies have gone out of business and/or were required to pay huge settlement fees. The owners of Action Electronics stopped selling any of the products after they received the same letter from the FTC.

It is a rare thing indeed to win your case against the FTC. We would like to add that your letters of support, your testimonials, and your kind words are deeply appreciated. You are part of the answer to help get this wonderful technology accepted into the world, and we at SOTA thank you most sincerely.

Shipping Charges
Due to uncontrollable rising costs of doing business; from our efforts at dealing with Government Regulatory Bodies, difficulties in shipping outside of Canada, poor Canadian dollar exchange rate, and many other “nickel & dime” issues, we must now charge for shipping for our products. New Shipping Rates will be in effect May 15th, 2001. We thank each and everyone of you for your continued support and heart-felt dedication. Also, many of you write to us at SOTA to express your thanks for the goods and service we offer, and/or your results (testimonials) with using our equipment. Not only are we deeply appreciative for your letters, faxes, and e-mails, we use this feedback to help prove the effectiveness and safety of our products. You are part of our Team. Again, much thanks to all of you.

A Major Milestone—a Medical Device License
NEWS RELEASE:

Alternative Health Company Gains Government Licensing for Health Device

SOTA Instruments Inc. is pleased to announce that Health Canada has issued a Medical Device License for their Magnetic Pulser. “The Magnetic Pulser has been used extensively as a research unit by natural health practitioners and the public. This license,” says Russ Torlage, company President, “represents a major step forward in forging a bridge between the medical community and other health professionals. Medical doctors are now free to use our Magnetic Pulser in their practice. Our Magnetic Pulser is classified as a Class II Medical Device which allows for purchase without the need of a prescription.”

SOTA Instruments Inc. is a privately-owned Canadian-based company that specializes in the manufacture and design of leading-edge electronic products for the natural health market. The use of pulsed magnetic fields has gained increasingly favorable attention in recent years as a non-invasive, non-toxic, healing modality. Most of the pulsed magnetic therapy devices currently on the market are large, expensive and complex units. In contrast, the SOTA MPG is lightweight, portable, easy to use, and priced at a cost that is attractive and affordable to consumers. The Magnetic Pulser is safe and simple to operate.

Progress on New SOTA Unit
The design of the Harmonic Pulser, Model HP1 is now completed. We expect to be able to ship the Harmonic Pulser in April, 2001. We are very pleased to offer the Harmonic Pulser at a price of $220.00 US. The original design by the inventor currently retails for $495.00 USD. Thank you all for your continued support and patience as we developed this wonderful new product.

New Product - Harmonic Pulser
The new Harmonic Pulser design has been completed. Russ discussed with the inventor the advantages of having a crystal-controlled micro-chip computer perform all of the signal timing and conditioning. He agreed if it could be done (others had failed) it would be a significant advancement. We are happy to report that the programming of the micro-processor is complete and the unit works flawlessly. Picture of HP1Basically, the micro-processor uses a 4.0 MHz crystal to digitally derive the output frequency of 728 Hz, and perform the 1 Hz modulation. The advantage of using a crystal-controlled micro-chip computer is there is no need to tune the Harmonic Pulser, as is currently required. We will begin to order all the parts for full production ASAP. Expect delivery within 6-8 weeks pending unforeseeable delays.
