FREDERICK, Md., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioElectronics Corporation (OTC Pink: BIEL), the maker of disposable drug-free healing pain therapy devices welcomed the FDA recommendations announced today in their Docket No. FDA-2012-N-0378, "Physical Medicine Devices; Reclassification and Renaming of Shortwave Diathermy for All Other Uses."

"We are pleased that the FDA is reclassifying this technology to reflect its safety and efficacy," said Andrew J. Whelan, President, BioElectronics.  The FDA's recommendation makes scientific evidence the determinant for additional market clearances."
