About Revolutions Medical Product - RMCP
Revolution Medical's products include the Rev Vac safety syringe, safety blood drawing device and safety IV catheter. The world market for safety-engineered medical devices (SEMDs) is projected to exceed 2 billion this year and is forecasted to maintain a 20% annual growth rate in the near term. Revolutions Medical also provides software solutions and proprietary tools that are compatible with standard MRIs and standard PACS. The software includes sorting of images, color, 3D, and automatic segmentation of images. These tools will enhance the physician's diagnostic confidence in an industry that is growing at 10% - 15% (more than 25 million procedures) per year with a worldwide market potential for these tools that exceeds $3.5 billion. The Rev Vac safety syringe and the Rev ColorMRI have not yet been cleared by the FDA for sale in the United States.
Since inception, the Company’s principal business has been to complete the development of and to commercialize color MRI Technology. The technology consists of software, which uses various color masks to produce full-color composite images from gray-scale MRI output. The resulting color images can be quickly viewed individually or all together as a “riffle stack”.
A riffle stack consists of the individual MRI images assembled to create a single composite image that contains the data from the individual images. The riffle stack allows a radiologist, using a computer mouse, to page through the images, creating a 3-D appreciation of the colorized MRI output even though the images themselves are not 3-D.
The software program can also segment the data and create a true 3-D image of the area to be examined. For instance, bone, fluid and other tissue displayed in an MRI scan of the head can be electronically eliminated to allow a 3-D rendering of just the brain.
The color images can be transferred to a CD-ROM or other digital storage device, instead of bulky film, for storage or for a patient to take to their referring physician. Because the color images are transferred to digital storage in a standard *.jpeg format, the color images can be viewed on any PC without the need for special software. The Rev ColorMRI has not yet been cleared by the FDA for sale in the United States.

Rev Vac Safety Syringe
The Rev Vac Safety Syringe and Phlebotomy (blood drawing) Device operate the same as a standard syringe and device. No additional training, skills, or procedures are necessary. The both products work on a vacuum principle, where pressing the plunger in them creates a vacuum. When the plunger reaches the bottom, the needle is captured. A further push on the plunger breaks the seal, and the needle retracts into the plunger barrel. The vacuum is maintained, so the needle cannot be removed from the plunger.
Revolutions Medical owns the patents and will manufacture a disposable retractable syringe and phlebotomy device. The products use a proprietary patented technology in which a vacuum causes the needle to retract into the barrel of the syringe or device after an injection is administered or blood is drawn. Prototype units have been produced and tested, but no units have been manufactured. The products have been designed to be manufactured at a cost that is approximately equal to the cost of traditional disposable syringes and phlebotomy devices and are intended to be a safe replacement for existing non-safe syringes and phlebotomy devices and even currently marketed syringes and devices labeled as safety products.
With traditional syringes and phlebotomy devices, a needle contaminated with a patient’s blood remains a danger to healthcare professionals handling the needle until it is permanently disposed of in a proper biohazard containment unit. Revolutions Medical’s safety products do not present a “needlestick” hazard to health professionals after use because the contaminated needle is retracted into the barrel of the safety product and locked in place. The Rev Vac safety syringe has not yet been cleared by the FDA for sale in the United States.
