4 Company Highlights Over 24 patents surrounding injection/drug delivery system Partnership with Tri-anim greatly expands distribution potential FDA & CE certification filed for epidural and osteoarthritis instruments Scientific precision, cost-effectiveness and safety for medical professionals Virtually painless injections for patients Disposable handpieces create high-margin recurring-revenue model Highly scalable business utilizing outsourced production model 4

5 Hypodermic Needle Syringe An efficient means of drug delivery, but with drawbacks that have not been addressed since its invention almost 150 years ago Issues: – Pain and the fear of pain – Tissue damage caused by uncontrolled flow rates of medication into tissue – Transient or permanent paralysis – Post-operative complications – Risk of medical emergencies, even including patient fatality 5

6 DPS® Technology Regulates and controls flow rate of fluid Dynamic Pressure Sensing® capability provides visual and audible in-tissue pressure feedback – Ability to identify tissue types and inject drugs at precisely the location needed, eliminating guesswork – Minimizes tissue damage and eliminates the pain of the injection because the flow rate and pressure of the injection are controlled Disposable injection handpiece allows precise tactile control during the injection Demonstrated success in dentistry, dermatology, rhinoplasty, podiatry and other uses 6

7 Tri-anim Health Services Partnership Three-year agreement announced in July 2013; begins after FDA marketing clearance Tri-anim to be distributor of Milestone’s epidural injection technology for childbirth and other pain management needs in the pain management/hospital sector – Nation’s largest provider of specialty sales and distribution solutions for healthcare, and largest distributor to birthing pain management centers – Tri-anim is a division of Sarnova, which offers healthcare products to thousands of customers across the U.S. – Partnership gives Milestone’s products national reach 7

8 Market Overview: Epidural Epidural market is estimated over $1 billion annually in the U.S. alone – 2.5 million women receive epidurals while in labor each year in the U.S. – More than 8.9 million epidurals administered for other purposes each year Doctors using conventional syringes identify the epidural space by relying on subjective perception – 1 in 30 women suffer complications with conventional standard of care – ranging from severe pain to wet tap to paraplegia and even death – Average cost per epidural malpractice settlement: $362,000 8

9 Epidural Instrument Milestone’s epidural instrument is able to reliably identify pressure characteristics of the different tissues, including the decrease in pressure in the epidural space Within seconds, the location of the needle can easily be determined, with higher pressures indicating the needle is in the ligamentum flavum Practitioners using Milestone’s instrument correctly identified the epidural space with a success rate of 100% (Gelber, Gebhard, et al. Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, 33:4; 2008) Milestone partnership with Tri-anim speeds distribution 9

10 Osteoarthritis Intra-articular market expected to reach $7 billion by 2015 – Osteoarthritis affects 33 million patients in U.S. alone – 21 million in U.S. receive intra-articular injections Conventional injections less efficacious, as doctor often fails to locate intra-articular space or uses inappropriate volume of hyaluronic acid DPS® has been successful in identifying the intra-articular space for the administration of medications to treat a variety of joint pathologies in an independent study (In-vivo animal study; White paper on file, 2008 ) 10

11 Beijing 3H Joint Venture Formed medical joint venture with Beijing 3H (Heart-Help-Health) Scientific Technology in July 2011 Two products under development: epidural and intra-articular drug delivery instruments utilizing DPS® technology 50/50 arrangement between Beijing 3H and Milestone Milestone provides exclusive worldwide royalty-free license for use of its patents as they relate to these two instruments Shareholders, including the general manager of Beijing 3H, contributed $1.5 million to the medical joint venture 11 Beijing 3H Exclusive worldwide patents $1.5 million 50% Epidural Intra-articular

12 Successful Track Record: STA System Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) System allows dentists to administer injections accurately and painlessly into the periodontal ligament space, effectively anesthetizing a single tooth Anesthetizes the tooth within one or two minutes vs minutes for a block injection – No pain or collateral anesthesia in the cheek, lips or tongue Capable of performing all injections done with a conventional syringe Over 50 million injections successfully delivered to date 12

13 Industry Recognition Favorably evaluated in more than 50 peer reviewed and independent clinical research reports 13 “Many doctors have found that as a result of the unique characteristics of Computer-Controlled Local Anesthesia Delivery (C-CLAD™), most traditional dental injection techniques can be performed with greater predictability and with less discomfort.” - Dr. Stanley F. Malamed, Professor of Anesthesia and Medicine at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry
