Industries Ltd., announced today that its subsidiaries, Spring Health Solutions
Ltd. and Spring Set Health Solutions Ltd., have received the first payment

treatment and drug delivery products, for the worldwide distribution of its
Spring Universal(TM) Detach Detect Infusion Sets under Twobiens’ private label.
The Agreement is for a term of three years and contains
annual sales targets and minimum order quantities estimated at a total of US$ 5
Million. The first payment made by Twobiens represents one-third of the cost
for customization as indicated in the Agreement.

OEM agreement marks an important milestone for the initiation of this

this exciting new partnership.”
About the Spring Universal Infusion Set
The Spring Universal Infusion Set is compatible with most insulin pumps
currently available on the market. Going beyond the minimum requirements of
subcutaneous drug delivery, the Spring Universal offers best-in-class features
such as a hidden, auto-retractable needle, 360 degree connector, and smallest
one-click, all-in-one inserter.
The core of the Spring Universal Infusion Set is the
proprietary Detach-Detect mechanism. In the case the base of the infusion set
detaches from the user’s body, a blocking mechanism is triggered which, in
turn, creates an occlusion. This evokes an occlusion alarm in an insulin pump.
This unique feature enables exceptional reliability for continuously controlled
and monitored insulin delivery, providing additional safety and peace of mind –
especially for athletes and the parents of pediatric patients.
