“Purchasing of the SportKAT Company provides us with a platform to fulfill our mission statement- providing products and programming to serve the entire wellness continuum, stated Dean Sbragia, CEO of Med-Fit Systems, Inc.

In addition, Sbragia claims, the SportKAT and Korebalance balance products provide us with an enhanced technology and IP portfolio, which will augment our commitment to provide cutting-edge products and programming to the commercial fitness, rehabilitation, athletic training and senior fitness markets.”

The SportKAT product line will also enhance Med-Fit Systems' ability to service and expand upon the over 1000 long term care facilities utilizing Nautilus® strength products to improve patient function and reduce cost of care.

Med-Fit Systems, Inc. plans to meld the operations into its Virginia manufacturing facilities and relocate SportKAT's southern California employees to its Fallbrook location.
