Ortho Kinematics’ VMA Technology Demonstrates Revolutionary Advancements in Spine Diagnostic Testing

AUSTIN, Texas – May 6, 2014 — Ortho Kinematics‚ Inc. (OKI), a privately held healthcare diagnostic
company focused on spine imaging informatics, demonstrates superior advancements in the reliability and
precision of spine diagnostic testing through its VMA technology.

The recent publication can be found at the following link

The paper concluded that “The VMA system markedly reduced variability of lumbar intervertebral
measurements compared with a digitized manual analysis. Further, computer-assisted fluoroscopic imaging
techniques demonstrate precision within the range of computer-assisted X-ray analysis techniques.”

“The recent paper published by Yeager et al. in The Spine Journal reports the improved reliability in the
VMA intervertebral measurements compared to the traditional methods. This is an additional peer reviewed
publication that supports the efficacy of the VMA technology.” said Paul Gunnoe, CEO of Ortho Kinematics,
Inc.

OKI’s Vertebral Motion Analysis (VMA) test is a revolutionary new diagnostic technology that is an
alternative to a test that has been routinely prescribed for the assessment of spinal instability for over 70
years. Spinal instability is a condition that very often results in severe back and neck pain, and is the
number one most common primary diagnosis driving the 500,000+ spine fusion surgeries done in the US
each year.
