Sure Trace Security Corporation Gets Media Coverage for eGeoCardio at the Tour de France

CALGARY, Alberta --(Business Wire)-- July 15, 2004 -- Sure Trace Security Corporation (OTCBB:SSTY) today provided an update on media coverage at the Tour de France of its state-of-the-art remote real-time heart monitoring device eGeoCardio, now being worn by selected cyclists at the Tour de France. eGeoCardio is a product of Globe Staff Consulting, a company which was recently acquired by Sure Trace. The Tour de France is the world's premier cycling race.

The French language RING MAGAZINE said (in translation), "Between July 3 and July 25, 2004, the Tour de France offers a unique possibility to its spectators: Observation of the cyclists' heart beats in action! On TV screens and websites, the sportsmen's heart rates can be seen in real time." An English translation of the entire article can be found at and the original article can be found at:

In addition, coverage was given by Datanews, a well known European magazine and website. Articles in French and Dutch can be viewed at

The article in Ring noted that eGeoCardio's transmitters/receivers are located around the wrist and in the vest pocket of the cyclists. The eGeoCardio system blends the cardiac frequency data with the cardiac profile of each cyclist, and the integrated cardiometry can be displayed with graphics and alerts, thus allowing coaches, cyclists and teams to study performance. The heart rate of each cyclist is being monitored on selected TV channels, including Eurosport, France Television, and German, Italian and US television stations. A worldwide ASP server is sending this data to the TV stations' Internet sites as well. Interested parties may access selected monitored heart rates of the 10 to 15 volunteer cyclists, who are equipped every day with the tiny instrument, at the EuroSport web site:

Mr. Jean Gilles Subervie, President of Globe Staff Consulting and a Director of Sure Trace Security Corporation was quoted in the article as saying, "We are proud that eGeoCardio offers a significant advance in the cyclists' cardiac surveillance. On the one hand, it will help each cyclist to improve his performance, and on the other hand it provides those who have fallen in love with cycling with reliable real time information." Mr. Subervie went on to say that a new version of eGeoCardio would appear in September which will include the ability to report the location, speed and altitude of each cyclist in real time. He noted that a medical version of this device will be developed which will offer help to elderly and certain ill persons.

Commenting on the media coverage, Mr. Subervie said, "We have developed the smallest, lightest GSM/GPRS/GPS tracking module in existence and it is very exciting to have it viewed all over the world. I assure you that many industrial and governmental eyes are watching our eGeoCardio system as it performs so well at this premier sporting event! I am certain that it will spur interest in our eGeoTrack system and in our upcoming additional products for elder care, child safety and law enforcement."
