BOZEN, Sud-Tirol, Italy, October 11, 2010 - Health Robotics today announced that it recently signed exclusive
distribution agreements for its CytoCare, i.v.STATION, and i.v.SOFT
world-leading technologies in seven new European countries with regional
industry leaders Newico and Apta Medica, rapidly continuing on its worldwide
quest to pervasively provide safe and cost-effective Intravenous (IV)
Admixture Compounding Automation to hospitals all over the world.

"The investment we recently made on Europe-hosted symposiums such as EAHP
and ISOPP, and the recent success of our Robots at Catholic University of
Louvain-St. Luc, Mainz University Hospital, and Val d'Hebron University
Hospital have enabled Health Robotics to continue its torrid momentum by
expanding into 10 new European countries this quarter", stated Gaspar
DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President.

"As a former Director at Ljubljana University Hospital, I was very
impressed with Health Robotics' new manufacturing and quality control
facilities and the performance of its Robots. Health Robotics' innovative
software and related technologies will finally enable clinical pharmacists in
the Former Yugoslav Republics to dedicate more time to patient care, clinical
research, and to tackle new challenges in the quickly-changing pharmaceutical
industry", stated Aljosa Rojec, Apta Medica's General Manager.

CytoCare is the first and only robotic system proven to work anywhere in
the world for the safe and sterile preparation of Hazardous Intravenous
Admixtures, including Chemotherapy, Monoclonal Antibody Therapy, and Gene
Therapy. With 56 installations currently under contract in 17 countries,
CytoCare has long proven its unmatched flexibility to adapt to diverse
pharmacy workflows and proprietary IV consumables in 4 continents. While
several companies attempted the development of Chemotherapy Robotics as far
back as 22 years ago, Cytocare is still the only robot that has been able to
break the entry-barrier into the Intravenous Chemotherapy Automation Sector.

"I look forward to work with Newico and Apta Medica in quickly deploying
our unique and world-leading technologies in their respective regional
markets. Newico's own experience with Oral Medication Robotics is an ideal
complement to Health Robotics' I.V. technology and "know-how", and Apta
Medica's extensive distribution and service network within the Former
Yugoslav Republics ensures that Health Robotics can continue to focus on its
core competences while selectively partnering with well-established, local,
and best-of-class marketing and service organizations", concluded Mr.
