Nortech Labs, Inc. and MEDNET™ Make for a Notable, Natural Partnership

New alliance enables the direct sales of safe, high-quality products to consumers and health care professionals

RIDGE, N.Y., Mar. 11, 2009 - It's always been easy to get chiropractors, pharmacists, doctors and school nurses to recognize the value behind reusable Therma-Kool® Hot & Cold Gel Packs and disposable InstaKool™ Hot & Cold Packs. The therapy packs provide immediate relief for pain and carry the backing of Nortech Labs, Inc. (http://www.nortechlabs.com), the established, FDA-licensed medical-supply manufacturer and original inventor of the resusable hot & cold gel pack in the U.S.

However, Nortech products are now more in-demand than ever due to government bans on other instant cold packs that include ammonium nitrate. Used for making bombs and methamphetamine, ammonium nitrate is found within many instant cold packs. Nortech, always looking for improvements in safety, developed the first disposable cold pack with an innovative formulation that doesn't contain ammonium nitrate. Since Nortech's therapy packs don't contain this contentious ingredient, those handing out Nortech packs can rest assured that they won't cause harm. What's more, ordering such Nortech products is now easy and convenient thanks to a new partnership between Nortech Labs, Inc. and MEDNET™ Direct Corp. (http://www.mednetdirect.com), a national leader in premium-quality disposable medical supplies.

"MEDNET's™ mission is distribution of top-of-the-line, disposable medical products," says Rob Perissi, MEDNET's™ founder and president. "So it's an honor to partner with a company like Nortech and continue to provide the absolute safest supplies to our customers."

Medical or health care professionals typically provide Nortech's therapy packs to patients, who then want to know where to buy more. MEDNET™ is now providing that answer through its signature online marketplace, www.mednetdirect.com. Through the website, anyone can purchase Nortech supplies – and even cut costs – by ordering on an as-needed basis. Moreover, because Nortech products do not contain hazardous materials, customers may order them online from MEDNET for safe, cost-effective delivery - without special handling or hazmat charges.

"As the pioneer in developing the first reusable hot & cold pack in the United States, we at Nortech are very proud of our contributions in the field of disposable and reusable medical supplies," says Josh Nazarieh, Nortech's vice president of operations. "Many industries - government, education, health care - are trimming their budgets. Ordering Nortech products direct through MEDNET™ helps them do exactly this."

In addition, Nortech is one of the few, remaining manufacturers of such reusable and disposable supplies in the United States. For example, most competitors of therapy packs make industrial-grade goods overseas. Nortech chooses only premium-quality materials and yet offers its products at competitive prices.

The Nortech products currently available through MEDNET™ include: instant hot & cold therapy packs, reusable hot & cold gel therapy packs, reusable and disposable therapy-pack covers, cold shipping and transport packs, seating and positioning products, eye wash and cleaning solutions.
