BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cleartronic, Inc. (OTCPINK:CLRI) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, ReadyOp Communications, Inc., played an important role in a university clinical research study for veterans and active duty personnel dealing with post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD). Many U.S. veterans suffer from chronic psychological and physical injuries. Conventional medical help provides a range of treatments, but many veterans prefer non-pharmacological, self-care healing practices and complementary alternative medical care.

A total of 467 veterans/service members were screened and 335 were enrolled. ReadyOp provided on line registration templates, initial screening questionnaires and study surveys and then the data for analysis. Yoga for Men (vets.yoga) provided the online yoga and mindfulness classes, instruction and other content. This clinical study was developed and administered under the direction of the University of South Florida - College of Public Health. The first six-month evaluation and results demonstrate success with reported reductions in PTSD symptoms avoidance and hyperarousal. Participants also reported improved sleep function. While preliminary, the present online platform that delivers yoga and meditation content appears to provide benefit to veterans/service members.
“We are pleased to support the University of South Florida and our veterans,” said Larry Reid, President of ReadyOp Communications. “This is our first use of the ReadyOp platform in a clinical study and it proved very easy and convenient for the researchers and the participants to use for reporting results. We look forward to expanded use of ReadyOp in many other research and clinical trials.”
The results of the study were presented last month at the annual Military Health System Research Symposium in Orlando.
