ActivaTek, Inc. Acquired by North Coast Medical, Inc.

Press Release

March 27, 2014

Salt Lake City — North Coast Medical, Inc., a manufacturer and supplier of physical rehabilitation medical products, has acquired of Salt Lake-based ActivaTek, Inc., a privately held manufacturer of transdermal iontophoretic devices. Iontophoresis is the method of delivering very small doses of anti-inflammatory drugs through the skin to a targeted area of the body with use of low-voltage current. Charged molecules of medication penetrate through the skin to underlying tissues via wired or wireless skin patches, eliminating the need for injecting a drug or ingesting a pill for drug delivery. Iontophoresis treatments are prescribed by physicians for anti-inflammation and pain management and are most often administered by physical therapists.

Among ActivaTek's inventions is the ActivaPatch, a wireless, self-contained, fully powered disposable patch, which functions as a complete delivery system for Iontophoresis.

“North Coast Medical has substantial capabilities and resources to grow the existing Iontophoresis rehabilitation business to a much higher level, while we focus on our new venture, ActivaDerm, Inc., a separate company specializing in aesthetic Iontophoresis devices for the dermatological and cosmetic markets,” said Jamal Yanaki, former president and CEO of ActivaTek, Inc.
