FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, January 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Retired former Chicago Cubs sports legend and entrepreneur Sammy Sosa has purchased the distribution rights for North America and Latin America, excluding Brazil, for the needle-free injection system known as Injex21.
Mr. Sosa was introduced to the Injex21 system in mid-2012, when he immediately saw the potential to help millions of people around the world who are forced to take painful injections, who are afraid of injections or who subject themselves to daily self-injections. Medical workers, as well, can reduce the risk of puncture wounds.
The Injex21 needle-free injection system was immediately interesting to Mr. Sosa. As a young boy in the Dominican Republic, Sammy Sosa held many odd jobs to help provide for his family after the death of his father. "I shined shoes. I sold oranges and I took out the trash at a local hospital. I remember throwing the big garbage bag over my shoulder and getting stuck in the back by needles," said Sosa.
These memories of the unsafe needles, plus his thoughts about his newborn daughter Kelexy, who would soon need immunizations, also served as motivators. Sammy Sosa believes he has an opportunity to revolutionize the medical industry, improving many lives due to needle-free Injex21 injectors.
"I can see many uses for dentists, pediatricians, diabetics - people all over the world," added Mr. Sosa.
Sammy Sosa spends his time these days working diligently on his two companies: Riverhead Homes, www.riverhead-homes.com
, a provider of disaster-proof buildings and housing communities for countries in need, and Injex 21, www.injex21.com
, the needle-free, pain-free medicine delivery system.
