SUWANEE, GA, April 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (SNWV) is pleased to announce that the company’s flagship wound care device, the dermaPACE® System, has been selected to be included in the New Product Showcase at SAWC (Symposium on Advanced Wound Care) in Charlotte, NC on April 25 – 29, 2018. This will be SANUWAVE’s first opportunity to present the dermaPACE® System to the U.S. market since receiving US FDA clearance in December 2017, allowing the company to market the device in the US. The company will also be exhibiting in Booth 108.
“This is a great opportunity for SANUWAVE to be featured at SAWC as one of the new medical devices for 2018 in Charlotte. New products are the prime reason people attend SAWC and having our device showcased will only increase our exposure at the show and allow us to get the word out about the dermaPACE® System,” stated Kevin R. Richardson, CEO and Chairman of the Board. The Company is using this occasion to formally introduce their lead wound care product, the dermaPACE® System. SANUWAVE’s proprietary PACE® (Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression) technology, based upon the focused, electrohydraulic shockwave principle, has been proven in two US based clinical trials enrolling 336 subjects to be safe and effective in the treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU). The dermaPACE® System is the only shockwave device cleared or approved by FDA for the treatment of DFU. Within a few weeks of initial treatment, wounds treated with dermaPACE® reduce in area at superior rates compared to control subjects. The dermaPACE® System exhibits superiority in wound area reduction within 12 weeks of initial treatment and exhibits superiority in wound closure within 20 weeks of initial treatment. The use of the dermaPACE® System allows the clinician to more easily, and more cost-effectively, manage wounds. More importantly, the patient’s quality of life improves significantly.
