ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Enova Medical Technologies and Stille AB (listed at First North Sweden) are pleased to announce that they have entered into a strategic marketing and distribution partnership. Beginning in the 4th quarter of 2007, Stille will market Enova's breakthrough LED cordless headlights to the surgical market with exclusive rights in Scandinavia, Great Britain and Italy and, on a non-exclusive basis, throughout the rest of Europe and Japan. The products will be added to Stille's existing medical product line and marketed under the Stille brand.
"Enova has been proud to be on the cutting edge of surgical lighting technology by offering the world's brightest cordless surgical headlights in the United States. Now, through our partnership with Stille, we are excited to begin offering these devices to physicians throughout Europe and Japan," said Fariborz Boor Boor, CEO of Enova. "As we expand our international sales, we are targeting only 'the best of class' distributors. We are convinced that Stille, with its well known brand and established distribution network, is the right partner for us."
A leader in cordless LED surgical headlight innovation, Enova has evolved LED technologies to achieve cordless lighting output that exceeds 100,000 lux.

Enova's LED technology provides the brightest and whitest cordless lighting available on today's market, lasts over 50,000 hours, and offers surgeons complete mobility and freedom during operations.
"This agreement is in line with Stille's strategy to expand our product offering to surgeons with only the highest quality innovative products," says Anders Weilandt, CEO of Stille.
