“Healing chronic wounds remain a challenge for wound care specialists and can lead to loss of function, decreased quality of life, and are a significant cause of morbidity for the patients who suffer with them.1 2 Using energy transfer technologies, such as UltraMIST®, has demonstrated improved healing in a variety of recalcitrant and unhealing wounds,” noted Dr. Mrdjenovich.
“These upcoming October wound care conferences in the U.S. offer SANUWAVE exceptionally broad-based exposure to the country’s leading wound care specialists given the diversity of audiences in attendance at each. We continue to support and develop symposia that educate wound care specialists on the clinical merits of our ‘Energy First’ products and how they can significantly improve the outcomes for their patients with chronic, unhealing wounds,” stated Kevin A. Richardson II, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SANUWAVE Health.
“The synergistic mechanisms of action of our UltraMIST® and dermaPACE® allow us to provide a multimodal treatment approach to wound management and healing. These products create a significant opportunity to improve patient outcomes when compared to only current standard-of-care, initially for DFUs, with a plan for all wound indications in the future,” added Mr. Richardson.
About UltraMIST® System
UltraMIST® System is providing through a fluid mist a low-frequency, non-contact, and pain free ultrasound energy deep inside the wound bed that promotes healing from within. The ultrasound acoustic waves promote healing by reducing inflammation and bacteria in the wound bed, while also increasing the growth of new blood vessels to the area. The UltraMIST® System treatment must be administered by a healthcare professional. This proprietary technology has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the promotion of wound healing through wound cleansing and maintenance debridement combined with ultrasound energy deposited inside the wound that stimulated tissue regeneration. The UltraMIST® System has been used in thousands of patients for more than a decade. For international markets, the UltraMIST® System is CE Marked in Europe.
About the dermaPACE® System
The dermaPACE® System is a novel medical system based on shockwave technology, which has been used for nearly 30 years in lithotripsy procedures (destruction of kidney stones) and later in orthopedic treatments. These early lithotripsy and orthopedic devices provided the earliest 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 treatment must be administered by a healthcare professional. The dermaPACE® System is FDA cleared for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and it is the first and only system based on focused electrohydraulic shockwave principle cleared by the FDA for such indication. For international markets, the dermaPACE® System is CE Marked in Europe for advanced wound care indications and in Canada carries a Health Canada Medical Device class II License. The dermaPACE® System is currently licensed or approved for advanced wound care indications in dozens of countries and regions around the world.
