Stinger Reveals Invention of Medical Monitoring Circuit for Its S-200 Projectile Stun Guns
Monday, June 30, 2008
Tampa, FL -- Stinger Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: STIY), the leader in electro-stun technology, today announced today that pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(a) it has been required to disclose the invention of a medical monitoring circuit for Stinger's S-200 Projectile Stun Gun to Taser International, Inc. (Nasdaq: TASR) in Taser International, Inc. v. Stinger Systems, Inc., that is federal district court case CV07-0042-PHX-MHM. While it has been so legally required to reveal this breakthrough circuit invention to a competitor, Stinger Systems, Inc. announced further that the actual specifications for the circuit disclosed are protected against use or disclosure by Taser International, Inc. by a stringent protective order issued by the court and that a patent application is pending for the technology. Stinger Systems, Inc. also claims the Tru-Data, Tru-Record and Tru-Strike trademarks for the circuit.
The smart circuit is designed to automatically activate when police shock a violent suspect with the S-200 stun gun to monitor, record and calculate physiological data from the suspect during the shock. If a physiological hazard presents, the smart circuit will automatically reduce or terminate the disabling shock.
Stinger Systems, Inc., has seen increased demand for its products through the last and current quarters, has recently made a number of inventive technical breakthroughs intended to enhance the safety of projectile stun guns and officer accountability for their use. In addition to the Tru-Data, Tru-Record and Tru-Strike technologies, these breakthroughs include the company's Tru-Pulse and Tru-Vu technologies.
Ron Bellistri, retired from the NYPD, Organized Crime Control Bureau and currently Stinger's CEO, commented for the Company, "This is, yet, another in a string of Stinger's breakthrough inventions intended to enhance the safe use of projectile stun guns. As stated above, though Stinger Systems, Inc. is legally required to disclose the new medical monitoring technology to Taser International, Inc., Taser International, Inc. is not privileged to use or disclose the details of this breakthrough safety invention. Taser International, Inc.'s X-26 stun gun continues to have no capacity to even sense a shock, let alone to moderate the shocking if a physiological hazard presents. The X-26 circuitry records when its shock circuit is energized, whether it is actually shocking a suspect or not. This provides no safety benefit against a possible electrocution. Moreover, this recorded information is of only limited value to the company, an officer or city in the event of a later lawsuit and may actually damage their trial position. Taser International, Inc.'s M-26 and X-26 Tasers continue to be unable to distinguish between an officer's activating their shock circuits to encourage a suspect's surrender with an intimidation display or the officer's actually activating the Taser to subdue the suspect with a shock. Certainly, neither the X-26 nor the M-26 can moderate the shocking current to prevent an electrocution if a physiological hazard presents when a suspect is being shocked. Only Stinger System's, Inc. owns such technology. Stinger Systems Inc. remains the only company on earth that has this amazing smart technology."
