1 NEURO THERAPY REHAB PROGRAM THE MOST ADVANCED PAIN ELIMINATION TECHNOLOGY IN EXISTENCE
2 ASTRA GROUP, LLC 01 Astra Group, LLC is a 3 year old company based in Dallas, TX, and is a strategic marketing partner and clinics owner of The ARP Wave System; a revolutionary, patented neurological sports rehab technology that is authorized by the FDA. ARP Wave, LLC is a 15 year old, $20 million a year, debt free company based out of Apple Valley, MN. The patented ARP Wave System speeds up healing in the body and eliminates pain and injury 60-80% faster than traditional therapy. On a corporate and licensee level more than 7,000 patients per year are treated with the ARP Wave technology, including an additional 2,000 of the world s most elite professional athletes who trust their multi-million dollar careers to our system of sports rehab. THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE ARP In today s medicine all injury and pain is treated where it ended up. If we have a knee, hip, back, neck or some other form of pain or injury we have always been treated where the problem ended up, not where it originated from. We have been prescribed drugs, rehab and surgery in most cases but this has been nothing more than a temporary fix to what was really a permanent problem. Thus with the ORIGIN of the problem left untreated, the physiological symptom would continue to reappear again and again and again. More drugs.more pain.more surgery more rehab a vicious cycle. ARP Wave client, UFC 13 Champion Guy Mezger With the ARP Wave System, we have the ability to go in and find out where the problem originated from, treat the issue non-invasively at its ORIGIN, without drugs, and once this is accomplished, eliminate the physiological symptom permanently. All injury is caused by the body s inability to absorb force. If your muscles are not neurologically firing properly and out of balance this causes an electrical disconnect in that muscle which leads to inflammation, the eventual build-up of scar tissue and ultimately transferring this force into areas of the body that were never meant to absorb this force; your knee, back, hips, joints, tendons and ligaments.
3 WHAT WE HAVE DONE HERE 02 What we have done here at ARP Wave is pioneer an entire new branch of medicine, which we call Neuro Therapy. A patient comes to us in pain, say the knee for example. Within 10 minutes of that first meeting we are able to locate the origin of where that pain is coming from and over the next 4 treatments (20 minutes each) literally eliminate that inflamed area with what we call Search and Destroy, using the patented ARP Wave System and proprietary protocols. This total 20 session therapy eliminates the knee pain permanently and eliminates any further need for drugs or the potential for surgery. This occurs with a 95% track record of success. Excerpt of an article in Boston.com, owned by the Boston Globe. Astra Group s Managing Director, Mark McClure, talks about the science of The ARP Wave System and their recent success in eliminating the need for Tommy John Surgery What people need to realize is where you feel pain or are injured is not where it is coming from, ever. Somewhere a muscle or muscles are not absorbing force and this arises from a neurological disconnect. What s that mean? It means that the signal being sent by the brain for that muscle to turn on fast enough to absorb force is not getting through, and this is due to sodium potassium leakage impeding that neurological signal. When this occurs that force is sent to areas of the body not meant to absorb force, hence causing damage to the ulnar collateral ligament. Until the muscles meant to absorb this force are treated, all the Tommy John surgeries in the world will not fix the problem because that force will STILL be sent to the ulnar collateral ligament. With the ARP Wave system and proprietary protocols, we are able to locate this neurological disconnect, turn the muscle back on so to speak, transfer the force away from the ligament to the muscle and in the process vastly accelerate healing, to the point our players are back in 2 weeks as opposed to 6+ months. Thus the reason for our success in eliminating the need for Tommy John Surgery, DPP Managing Partner Mark McClure stated. This statement is the cornerstone and foundation of The ARP Wave System. Find the neurological ORIGIN of what s causing the symptom, treat it, and the physiological symptom is eliminated. Permanently. Changing the landscape of baseball in North America the ELIMINATION of Tommy John Surgery! The revenue potential for this is astronomical with absolutely ZERO competition. Below is a link to a MIAMI HERALD piece on Mark McClure and his clinics use of The ARP Wave System in eliminating the need for Tommy John Surgery, DPP Managing Partner Mark McClure stated. Chicago Bears QB, Jay Cutler was expected to be out 4-6 weeks with a groin pull/tear, but after a week on the ARP Wave was back in under 2 weeks!!!

4 A VERY SMALL SAMPLE of Past and Current ARP Wave Clients 03 Jonathan Toews, Ray Lewis, Vernon Davis, Kevin Garnett, DeMarcus Ware, Eric Decker, Wes Welker, Jay Cutler Generate NEW REVENUE For Your Clinic With PATENTED Technology and NO Competition So what makes the ARP Wave System so remarkably more effective than other physical rehab technology and protocols? Why do the world s top professional and amateur athletes seek out the ARP Wave therapy as their preferred tool in getting back on the field 60-80% faster than traditional rehab? What separates the ARP Wave from everyone else? This can be answered in THREE bullet points below.
5 DIANOSTIC: Unlike traditional stim, laser, Ultrasound and physical therapy protocols, the ARP Wave System is able to diagnose and pinpoint the exact location of what is CAUSING the symptom. All other therapy and modalities take an educated guess and go from there. How is ARP able to do this? Through its patented and proprietary high frequency, bio-electrical wave form it is able to penetrate healthy tissue without impedance while locating scar tissue and inflammation (neurological disconnect) near the injured area by utilizing what we call Search and Destroy. As we conduct this search the patient tells us which area is the most intense on a scale of Once we find that 10 we know with certainty that that is the ORIGIN of what is causing the pain and from there, we begin the treatment. 04 SPEED: While typical rehab for most sports related injuries is timed in months, recovery with the ARP Wave System can be timed in DAYS. At one of our clinics in Dallas, TX the typical recovery time for baseball players that were told they needed 4 months to recover was LESS than 2 weeks and in some cases 8 days. This is the standard not the exception. How is that possible? By treating the ORIGIN of what is causing the symptom while simultaneously contracting the muscle neurologically at 500 X per second and driving blood to the injured tissue, we are able to rehab athletes CONSISTENTLY 60-80% faster than traditional rehab. When our therapy is complete, the muscles that were NOT turning on fast enough to absorb force are now firing properly, force has been transferred away from the injured tissue to the appropriate muscle(s) and pain has been eliminated. At the end of traditional therapy (typically weeks and months depending on the type of injury), however, that patient is still symptomatic, the muscle(s) still not absorbing force effectively and a vicious cycle of pain, rehab and drugs begins. Until you treat the ORIGIN of what is causing the symptom, that circle of ineffective therapy will never change. NEUROLOGICAL ELIMINATION OF COMPENSATORY ACTIONS: The more we try to stay out of pain, the more harmful compensation patterns we create. And this is a NEUROLOGICAL issue NOT a physical one and needs to be treated that way. When we are in pain, we take on movement patterns that help us avoid pain and these movement patterns we create are NOT the patterns we were born with. The more these patterns become the norm, the more physiological problems we create and it only escalates from there. During the ARP Wave treatment, however, we are not only eliminating pain but simultaneously training you to move CORRECTLY again and subsequently eliminating the compensatory actions that caused this in the first place. No other therapy or modality is able to effectively eliminate compensation patterns, leaving their patients SYMPTOMATIC upon the completion of their treatment. With the ARP Wave therapy, we are able to DIGANOSE, neurologically rehab you 60-80% faster than traditional therapy and finally break the compensations that helped cause this in the first place. Upon completion we now have a PAIN FREE patient that is asymptomatic, and one that can return to work or the ball field in record time.
6 ARP Wave Licensee Testimonials 05 "I have been a Chiropractor for 14 years and pride myself on being on top of all the new cutting edge technology. In using the ARP wave over the past year, I am flabbergasted at the results it produces. The results are immediate and work for any kind of condition. In 14 years of private practice I have never seen results like this. This technology is truly going to change healthcare in the most positive way imaginable both for the Doctors rendering care and the patients receiving the care. Patients are going to get quality of life back in a very short period of time, live a life without pain and doctors are going to successfully treat nearly any condition without drugs or surgery. Absolutely amazing." Dr.Brian Miller, University Village Chiropractic, Chicago IL. "I have worked in sports rehab my entire chiropractic career with the NHL and various other professional and amateur athletes and organizations. Never have I seen a system of rehab get patients back so fast than the ARP Wave System. Injuries that would typically take weeks or even months to rehab have been narrowed to days with the ARP Wave. Absolutely, without a doubt, the best form of pain and injury elimination therapy I have ever seen and is now a staple at my clinic. The ARP Wave has vastly increased my patient flow and revenue base. Dr. Jason M. Bongi, Atlanta Spine & Sport Revenue Breakdown How YOU Make Money A. Patient comes in for an initial treatment at NO COST to them. Your ARP Wave therapist has the patient do the movement that is causing them pain, then notates the pain level on scale of 1 to 10 as well as range of motion. We want the patient to see and FEEL the results in this very first session. B. Assuming it s a knee problem for example, the therapist will take the patient through the Search and Destroy protocol, scanning the area around the knee, thigh, etc., and pinpointing the exact location of the neurological origin of what is causing the pain. Once we find the first origin, we scan one more time to try to find its connection and when that is pinpointed, we place the second sticky pad there. One cable, 2 pad placements for that leg. We then mirror the pad placements on the other leg because chances are if it is happening in one knee is now happening in the other due to compensation patterns. So now we have BOTH cables on the legs; 2 cables, 4 pad placements of identical origins on each leg.
7 C. The therapist then takes the patient through the proprietary protocols for our neuro knee rehab treatment. D. At the end of the session we now have that patient do the exact same movement they did BEFORE the session so we can notate the change in pain and range of motion. In 95% of ALL cases the patient sees a dramatic improvement in reduction of pain and vast increase in range of motion and at that point closing the patient into the treatment is a foregone conclusion. Almost all of them at this juncture have been through PT, other modalities and their frustration is palpable. So you can imagine the joy and relief they feel when they have FINALLY found the solution to their injury or chronic problem. Not to mention the elimination of pain killers, harmful drugs and possible surgery. The benefits are vast. E. The therapist then presents the $2,500, twenty (20), 30 minute session package (30 minutes in total time, not just machine time) which is 10 sessions of Neuro-Rehab to get them out of pain and get range of motion back, then 10 sessions of Neuro Strength Training to neurologically strengthen those muscles that caused this in the first place. Most opt to go all in for this package and save $200. If they want to break it up, however, they can do the Neuro Rehab package for $1,700 and then the Neuro Strength package for $1,000. F. Prior to a patient coming into the clinic we let them know that we do not take insurance, its cash only, and we go over the process with them on the phone. We then ask them on the phone that if we are able to demonstrate the ARP Wave s efficacy in this very first session, will they be prepared to move forward thereafter. If it is a YES, great, we book the appointment. If it is a NO, we tell them we appreciate their honesty and to call us and book an appointment when they are ready. Under this model, we close 90+% of ALL patients that come in for this introductory session. 06 Assuming a 20 Session Package Gross Revenue $2, Less $.45 Per Minute Protocol Usage This is time on the machine paid to ARP for the continued use of the protocols and support. (Each session is 15 minutes machine time x 20 Sessions) $( ) $40 Per Hour- (20 x 30 Minute Sessions = 10 Total Hours) $( ) Contingency/Misc. costs of 10% $( ) NET PROFIT $1, On average a typical ARP Wave clinic closes about 4-6+ new patients a month (many doing much more) so assuming a slow month scenario of only 3 new patients, that s $4,395 IN NEW REVENUE PER MONTH treating the NEUROLOGICAL ORIGIN instead of the symptom and obtaining results unlike any of your competitors.

9 ARP Wave Training 08 ARP Wave corporate will provide thorough, hands on training on the ARP Wave technology and the PATENTED and PROPRIETARY ARP Wave protocols either at its corporate headquarters once a month or via Skype within your facility. Immediately upon receipt of your ARP Wave device, ARP corporate will schedule a 3 hour introductory Skype session with you on the basics of the machine, how to use it, etc. Essentially get you and your staff acclimated to the technology. From there, you have 1 of 2 options for the hands on, protocol training; Option 1: You can send a staff member(s) to ARP Wave headquarters in Apple Valley, MN for their 10 day, hands on ARP Wave Certification training. This is the ideal method in that the therapist is trained in a hands on environment by the leading ARP Wave experts; from a classroom to practical application setting. This training is INCLUDED in the cost of the Commercial License (except travel and hotel) and you may send as many staff members as you like. This 10 day training is offered once a month. Option 2: If you are unable to send a staff member to the 10 day training, we can Skype in or Facetime with you as you treat the patient, walking you through every step of the way as you Earn and Learn. Since everything is protocol driven, you and your staff will pick up on the treatments very, very quickly and learn the system in an active environment. While we strongly encourage doctors to send their staff to the training, this is an ideal second option. The ARP Wave System is just that a system. Everything is protocol driven and the results are predictable. All you need to do is follow the system, follow the protocols and ensure proper movement during the sessions and you and your patients are going to experience quantifiable results unlike anything you have ever seem before! Below is a very, very small sampling of some chains and teams utilizing the ARP Wave System. OrthoNow Surgery centers will be placing the ARP Wave System in all 13 of their locations in Southern Florida in 2015 and beyond. OrthoNow is just one of the many surgeon, physician and chiropractic groups throughout North America bringing the ARP Wave System into their clinic as THE tool for rapid pain elimination and rapid physical rehab for their patients.
10 The Business Model Of Our Programs Success 09 So what is the secret to our success? Why do the world s most elite pro athletes trust their multi-million dollar careers to us? Very simple. In that very first RISK FREE SESSION the patient experiences quantifiable results unlike anything they have ever seen before, thus making this one of our most effective selling mechanisms. There is nothing more powerful and effective than the patient experiencing a reduction in pain and vast increase in range of motion in their very first treatment and once this occurs, closing the sale is a foregone conclusion. This is in stark contrast to other therapies, especially physical therapy, where the patient is expected to wait weeks or even months before they can see any noticeable difference in pain reduction or range of motion. These immediate, quantifiable results separate us from the competition and our Put Our Money Where Our Mouth Is first session is the difference maker that sets the stage. So how will we drive patient flow in the short and long term? How will we maximize these complimentary sessions? Below is a partial outline of how Astra s own clinics procure NEW patients as well as how we help several of our Licensees procure new patients; a marketing platform we have tweaked and perfected over the years and will continue to tweak and perfect moving forward. Patient Acquisition Marketing Platform Tap Doctor s Current Database for Immediate Patient Flow: Upon placement of the ARP Wave System and set up of the clinic, we immediately show the doctor how to target their current patient base through an internal marketing platform, allowing them to generate patient flow within the first 72 hours. Grand Opening: Two to three weeks after set-up we launch a Grand Opening, inviting all the area middle school, high school and college coaches, various league officials, gym owners, golf course and tennis facility GM s, running clubs, biking clubs, etc. They will be treated to light food and beverages and more importantly receive a brief, yet thorough break down on the science of what we do and even see a few live demo s on participants. This allows us to begin building the brand and educating the community on how we are dramatically much more effective than other modalities and treatments. We have 600+ NFL Players and 2,000 of the world s most elite professional athletes as ARP Wave clients; what parent, athlete, coach or every day person is not going to be comforted by that? Demo Day(s): We train our ARP Wave therapist on how to market and set up Demo Days at area gyms, businesses, etc. These will be PRIME opportunities to showcase the ARP Wave in action and for people to experience the power of what we do and what we can do for them. If the therapist can dedicate the first 3-4 months to conducting 3 Demo Day s per month coupled with our other marketing strategies, there is no reason we cannot double or even triple our estimates from the previous pages. Marketing Campaign: We have access to every of every high school and college coach in the United States, and will conduct blast announcements to that geographical region announcing the ARP Wave arrival to our clinic. We individually target EACH sport and prepare the to focus on the hot buttons for that specific sport.
11 Post Card Distribution: We have developed marketing post cards that can be edited to conform to any geographical location, and then distributed at high school and college games and other sporting events that fit our demographics. We have also developed and designed post cards for NON SPORTS CLIENTS which are great for targeted mail campaigns or to simply drop off in local stores, etc. The above platform has been instrumental in driving NEW PATIENT FLOW for our own clinics and our licensee s right out of the gate, a platform that has helped lay a foundation of not only new patients, but referrals as well. The ARP Wave technology and results SELLS ITSELF, and by utilizing the above platform you will have the patient flow with which to work with! 10 Below Are A Few Links To ARP Wave Clinics Visit a few of the links below to get an understanding on how some of the many ARP Wave clinics market this patented and proprietary neurological therapy.
