IQMS Medical Customer Honored with an MDEA Award

Aribex's revolutionary hand-held dental X-ray device, the NOMAD Pro, receives a silver Medical Device Excellence Award

PASO ROBLES, CALIF. - IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software and MES developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and relationships, today announced that one of its medical customers, Aribex, Inc., has won a Medical Device Excellence Award (MDEA) for its NOMAD Pro device. Revolutionizing the way dental X-rays are taken, the NOMAD Pro is the world's first hand-held X-ray device that can be used in or out of the conventional dental office setting, making it ideal for humanitarian, nursing home or other remote use.

"All of us at Aribex are pleased to have our hard work recognized by such a prestigious organization as the MDEA," said Ken Kaufman, president and CFO of Aribex. "This will help continue our momentum as we develop safe, effective hand-held X-ray products for the future."

Presented Wednesday night, May 23, at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown hotel, Aribex was honored with the silver award for its excellence in the areas of product innovation, design and engineering achievement and end-user benefit. Initially founded in response to an expressed need for truly portable dental X-ray equipment for humanitarian field-service work, Aribex's dedication to those in need greatly reflects the 2012 MDEA trend of developing products for emerging markets.

From remote, global locations such as Bolivia, India, Panama and Haiti to suffering people on America's own home front, the NOMAD Pro has proven indispensible in assisting doctors in humanitarian and access-to-care work across the globe. Hundreds of thousands of patients, most of whom had never seen a dentist before, have had access to a high level of dental care for the first time in their lives, thanks to Aribex.

"Aribex superbly demonstrates how innovation excellence and adoption of state-of-the-art technology can deliver success in today's manufacturing world," said Glenn Nowak, vice president at IQMS. "To design and develop a device that both helps people around the globe and fills a medical industry need is an accomplishment Aribex should be very proud of."
