World Renowned Wound Care Experts to Lead Discussion on Role of dermaPACE in the Treatment of Chronic Wounds
Suwanee, GA - (NewMediaWire) - September 22, 2020 - SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (OTCQB: SNWV), whose focus is the development and commercialization of a robust and innovative advanced wound care product portfolio for the repair and regeneration of skin, musculoskeletal tissue and vascular structures, announced today that the Company is sponsoring a dermaPACE® educational symposium at the upcoming Wounds Canada Virtual Conference taking place October 14 – 18, 2020. The educational symposium entitled, “Innovative Energy Transfer Medical System: PACE®-Focused Shockwave Technology Facilitates Revascularization and Capillary Perfusion in Chronic Wounds,” will take place on Saturday, October 17, 2020 at 8:00 am EDT.
The symposium will feature renowned leaders in the wound care sector: David G. Armstrong, M.D., Keck School of Medicine at University of Southern California and Perry V. Mayer, M.D. Medical Director of the Mayer Institute in Hamilton, Ontario. The event will be moderated by Robin Evans, M.D., Medical Director of the Wound Healing Clinic-Women’s College Hospital in Toronto and will include participation of Iulian Cioanta, Ph.D., Chief Science and Technology Officer of SANUWAVE Health.
“We are proud to support this educational symposium led by luminaries in the field before an audience of wound care specialists seeking to learn more about innovative treatments for their patients with chronic wounds,” stated Kevin A. Richardson II, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SANUWAVE Health. “The biologic responses activated by the dermaPACE® treatment continue to demonstrate improved revascularization and capillary perfusion needed to promote healing in these recalcitrant wounds.”
“The dermaPACE® System has been particularly effective in speeding the healing process through improved microvascular perfusion in patients with diabetic, distal ischemia. We are also able to observe that the dermaPACE® System affects the healing of primarily closed wound sites with a dramatic reduction of edema, from between 3-4+ perioperatively to negligible amounts after the third shockwave treatment. The introduction of shockwave therapy to the patient’s treatment plan appears to hasten the overall healing affect (wound margin annealing) and allows the patients to return to normal weight-bearing activities sooner,” noted Dr. Mayer.

About the dermaPACE® System
The dermaPACE® System is a novel device based on shockwave technology, which has been used for nearly 30 years in orthopedic treatments and lithotripsy procedures (destruction of kidney stones). These early devices also provided evidence that there was an effect on wound healing. Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression (PACE®) Technology was developed based on this evidence, and the dermaPACE® System is the first to utilize PACE-specific proprietary protocols for wound treatment.The dermaPACE® System is FDA cleared for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). The dermaPACE® System is the first and only device based on shockwave principles cleared by the FDA for such indications. For international markets, the dermaPACE® System is CE Marked in Europe for advanced wound care indications and in Canada the dermaPACE® System carries a Health Canada Medical Device class II License. The dermaPACE® System and wound indications are currently licensed or approved in dozens of countries and regions around the world.
