TASER International Announces Human Safety Studies Review Held at Symposium in Germany

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, May 25, 2007 - TASER International, Inc. (NASDAQ: TASR) a market leader in advanced electronic control devices today announced that Dr. Jeffrey Ho presented a paper entitled the "State of Current Human Research and Electronic Control Devices (ECDs)" at the European Working Group Fourth European Symposium on Non-Lethal Weapons on May 23, 2007 in Ettlingen, Germany. The study addressed the most pertinent human research and the implications of recent research on the phenomenon of in custody deaths in law enforcement.

Jeff Ho, M.D., stated, "There appears to be increasing interest in (Electronic Control Device) ECD use in society from law enforcement, military and personal defense perspectives. Along with increasing use of these devices, there is also a heightened awareness of perceived association with (Sudden Death) SD events. This perception may be stimulated by media inaccuracy and sensationalism at times. It may also be the product of misapplied logic."

"There have been numerous human studies investigating the possible association between ECD application and SD events. To date, no clear association has been demonstrated when examining the currently recognized etiologies of sudden death such as cardiogenic, pulmonary, metabolic or thermoregulatory causes. Additionally, data exists to show that ECD use has the potential to save human lives within certain populations. We believe that further study of ECDs is recommended to validate our findings."

"This was a tremendous opportunity for Dr. Ho to present peer reviewed medical research to representatives from 14 countries around the world concerning the medical effects of TASER technology," said Rick Smith, CEO and Co-Founder of TASER International. "This research validates the general safety of TASER® technology. Dr. Ho is one of the leading authorities on TASER technology and was accepted to present in front of the prestigious group of less-lethal experts from their respective countries."
