Troy University to Lifewave:
"Our name has been misused and we want the record straight."
“Lifewave is not endorsed, represented or supported by Troy University, its employees,
or coaches. Troy University has not conducted any official research on the effectiveness
of Lifewave products and, therefore any reports to the contrary are incorrect."

Our Correspondence with Troy University

When we inquired about the relationship between Lifewave and Troy University, we were sent this e-mail:

Mr. Burtis, we have no relationship with Lifewave and have done no research for Lifewave. Our attorney has notified them to cease all references to Troy University or we will peruse legal action. Coach Shaughnessy does not represent Lifewave on behalf of Troy University. I could not find a reference to Troy University on the web site you listed.

We then forwarded this information to Lifewave and their response was:

"All that means is that is Troy State's "official position". I know Lifewave had removed all references to Troy state from their site last December due to hundreds of phone calls being made to Troy to verify the test results that were previously posted on the Lifewave site. This was an annoyance to Troy so they asked not to be referenced by Lifewave." - Lifewave Affiliate

We wrote to Troy University once again for clarification, and were told:

Mr. Burtis, As you will note below, we are very clear in our directions to Lifewave. The statement that we have requested that they post on their website and on those of their affiliates is as follows: “Lifewave is not endorsed, represented or supported by Troy University, its employees, or coaches. Troy University has not conducted any official research on the effectiveness of Lifewave products and, therefore any reports to the contrary are incorrect. Troy University did complete an assessment of the product to determine if it would be an effective training aid, and the results of this assessment were intended for internal use only.” This statement represents our position on the matter and any statements that imply an affiliation with Lifewave are incorrect. Please note that it is our intent to notify all Lifewave related web sites that we can contact with our position on this matter.

Dr. Patterson was also nice enough to forward an e-mail he sent to Warren Hanchey at Lifewave, that read:

Mr. Hanchey, I appreciate your response. However our position is clear and we are requesting that you use the statement we presented to you in my last e-mail. Our name has been misused and we want the record straight. Additionally we request that you send this statement to your affiliates. It is our intent to notify all web sites associated with Lifewave and advise them to place this disclaimer on their web site and that any use of Troy University’s name associated with Lifewave products will be considered a violation of the university’s licensed right to this name. Your accommodation of this request is expected and failure to act on your part will leave the university no choice but to peruse legal action. It is our hope that you will honor our request and that you will cease stating or inferring that Troy University has any affiliation with Lifewave.
