Computer Sports Medicine Inc.
"This license was issued after Senator Edward M. Kennedy's office called OFAC on behalf of this Massachusetts-based company on July 12, 2006, then wrote a follow-up letter on Nov. 29, 2006. The license authorized the sale of the HUMAC NORM Multi-Joint Evaluation and Exercise System to Sepehran Company for resale in Iran to, among other entities, the National Olympic Academy of Iran, which trains Iran's athletes. The product, which was deemed to be an allowable medical device export, is an exercise machine used in sports rehabilitation. Rob Potash, the vice president of Computer Sports Medicine, said he believed that the sale of American products to Iranians helped to improve the United States' image there."
