     "We are pleased that our investors have shown confidence in SoloHealth
 as we move forward with our deployment strategy," said Bart Foster, CEO and
 founder of SoloHealth. "The proceeds from this investment will provide us
 with the working capital to continue to validate our model in a number of
 additional market locations over the balance of the year."
     SoloHealth's inaugural product, EyeSite(TM), is a self-service vision-
 testing kiosk for use in high traffic retail environments. Through
 sophisticated optical software and an interactive video interface, users
 can accurately assess their distance and near vision -- free of charge. A
 printout indicates the results, provides eye health information, and refers
 the user to a participating eye care professional nearby.
     "We are delighted to invest in SoloHealth's first round of outside
 financing, said Knox Massey, managing director of the Atlanta Technology
 Angels. "We were highly impressed by Bart's passion and drive to bring the
 SoloHealth product to market. SoloHealth has created an innovative,
 technology platform that can positively influence vision health awareness
 for millions of people."
     SoloHealth announced last week that EyeSite won three Awards of
 Excellence, including "Best in Show" at the KioskCom Self Service Expo and
 The Digital Signage Show in Las Vegas.
     Past winners honored included: BMW, SONY, FedEx, AAA, the US Postal
 Service, Hilton Hotels, Sunoco, SAS, and ExxonMobil.
     Earlier this year, SoloHealth was selected as one of the 2008 "Top 40"
 Innovative Technology companies in Georgia by the Technology Association of
 Georgia (TAG), the state's leading technology organization. In addition,
 SoloHealth was accepted for membership by Georgia Tech's Advanced
