FiRe 2010 to Feature Nivasonix’s Revolutionary Non-Invasive Ultrasound Body Fat Reduction Technology


Strategic News Service is proud to announce that NivaSonix, LLC has been selected as a 2010 FiReStarter company, to be featured at its annual Future in Review technology conference. FiReStarter companies are selected based on their potential to bring positive change to the world, and are showcased during the conference, both at an exclusive investor reception and in panels throughout the conference.

NivaSonix, LLC is an innovation-driven company that has developed a portable, patient-tailored, non-invasive ultrasound technology that reduces body fat and wrinkles. Several major health issues have been associated with the presence of excess body fat. The company’s breakthrough, transformative ultrasound technology is protected by a strong I.P. portfolio, and its product platform is designed for a variety of aesthetic applications, with the ability to rapidly expand into therapeutic markets. The NivaSonix ULLISYS® Ultrasound System is currently in late stage development and is undergoing in-depth evaluation and studies.

“We are truly excited about the opportunity to share our vision dedicated to science for human well-being,” said Bobby Purkait, President and CEO of NivaSonix and scheduled speaker at FiRe 2010.

Future in Review is an annual gathering of world-class thought leaders in technology and economics. Now in its eighth year, Future in Review 2010 will take place May 11-14th at the beautiful Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, California.  The Economist has called FiRe “The best technology conference in the world.”  This year’s FiRe will feature keynote speaker Nathan Lewis, George L. Argyros Professor of Chemistry, California Institute of Technology, on the key issue of “Scaling Alternative Energies.”

“While there is much to be discovered, we see this solution as a landmark step toward general fitness, and preventive health.  Non-invasive removal of fat may be one of the simplest and most effective steps in staying healthy that individuals will be able to make in the future, and NivaSonix is an important part of this story,” said Mark Anderson, FiRe Chair and SNS CEO.
