John:
I do not feel that there was any misrepresentation on the part of Healthtronics as to the effectiveness of Ossatron. I still maintain that their biggest dilemna is their business model which is too high cost for the current health care enviroment -- something that they should have realized.

Ed,
I am in agreement with you. When I was first offered shares in an LLC with Healthronics the cost containment claim that the Ossatron Model was less expensive then open release foot surgery was something that never made sense to me.
The effectivess of high energy was reviewed and approved by the FDA. What higher authority can you use. ??
