KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCQB: MDHI.PK), today announced it has selected FEV of Auburn Hills, MI to conduct further tests of its MotorBooster™ engine catalyst product, which in preliminary tests demonstrated strong fuel mileage gains and significant emissions reductions. The new set of tests, which are expected to begin later this week and to be completed in approximately three weeks, will utilize EPA compliant equipment under highly controlled and extensively supervised conditions.
Paul Green, Vice President of Marketing at MDHI commented, "We believe we have selected one of the finest automotive testing organizations in the world to conduct these tests. FEV is an internationally recognized power train and vehicle engineering company, which employs more than 2,200 highly skilled specialists in multiple test facilities around the world. This test, which will be conducted in FEV's ISO-9001 certified facility in Michigan, will utilize some of the most advanced engine testing equipment available in North America."
The testing will establish baseline fuel consumption, horsepower, emission, and exhaust gas statistics prior to the introduction of the MotorBooster™ catalyst into the engine's fuel supply. After a running period where the product conditions the engine, a subsequent test protocol will be implemented and the results compared. In an earlier independent third-party dynamometer test, an engine treated with MotorBooster™ exhibited significant performance (fuel consumption reduction of 16.5% and an increase in horsepower by 2.9%) and emission improvements (54% reduction in carbon monoxide and 84% decline in hydrocarbons) after having been conditioned with the combustion catalyst product as compared to results before treatment.
Mr. Green continued, "We realize that product claims relative to fuel mileage increases, horsepower gains, and emission reductions are subject to a great deal of scrutiny, so we want to take all steps possible to ensure our marketing claims are backed by solid data. A highly regarded professional racing engine developer performed the prior MotorBooster™ testing, but we have not been able to secure the rights to use the name of the organization in our marketing efforts. We have been sure to secure the rights to use the full testing report from FEV in our marketing materials going forward, and we are in process of contracting for another laboratory to conduct additional testing to further support our marketing claims. We plan to announce these additional tests over the coming weeks."

MotorBooster's™ proprietary formulation is made of an organic metallocene compound that has been granted a U.S. Patent and is registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The product comes in the form of a one-fourth-inch, round diameter beige tablet that users simply insert into a full tank of 15 gallons or more of gasoline, upon which it immediately dissolves into the fuel. It is then subsequently injected as part of the gasoline or diesel fuel mixture into the combustion chamber of the engine. Once within the combustion chamber, MotorBooster™ forms an oxide residue film layer that facilitates or "catalyzes" the combustion process and enables a more complete, efficient burn of the fuel that results in better power delivery to the motor, enhanced fuel performance, mileage gains, reduced emissions and other engine enhancing performance benefits. For maximum benefits, users should treat their engine by allowing MotorBooster™ to dissolve in a full tank of gasoline and circulate throughout the combustion chamber of the engine as part of the fuel mixture for up to several consistent fuel cycles. This process should be repeated consecutively for several fuel tank fill-ups in order to achieve optimal engine performance.
Medical Alarm Concepts Holdings, Inc. (MAC) develops and manufactures innovative products and practical solutions within the framework of a vast growing marketplace. MediPendant's™ patented two-way voice technology enables the user to speak and listen directly through the pendant no matter where the user may be in and around their home. MediPendant™ service also includes advanced features such as three-way calling that enables the operator to link loved ones directly into the emergency call in real time. Text message alerts are also standard, and are used to inform loved ones that the user has contacted an operator or has requested assistance. A standard PERS system does not enable the user to speak and listen through the pendant, thus limiting them to a small area in their home. There is always the risk that the user will not be heard by the call center operator if they are not within a short range of the base station.
