SUWANEE, GA, July 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (SNWV) is pleased to announce that the company will exhibit at the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Annual Scientific Meeting, also known as “The National”, in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 11 – 14, 2019. SANUWAVE is excited to showcase their wound care device system, dermaPACE®, to attending podiatrists, physician assistants and other professionals. This will be the first time SANUWAVE will be exhibiting at APMA since the dermaPACE® System received FDA clearance in December 2017. The company will be exhibiting in Booth 520.
In addition to the exhibition booth, there will be two events involving the dermaPACE system:
- A poster presentation from Dr. Windy Cole, DPM, Adjunct Professor and Director of Wound Care KSUCPM and Medical Director, UH Ahuja Wound Center titled: The Use of Non-Invasive Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression System to Promote Angiogenesis in Chronic Wounds;
- A Wound Care Workshop on Friday, July 12, 2019 from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm where Dr. Windy Cole and Dr. James McGuire will be providing a demonstration of the dermaPACE System
“We are thrilled to be attending this year’s APMA annual meeting and are eager to engage our customers also attending. We are working with several leading podiatrists throughout the United States who are evaluating the impact of dermaPACE on their patients with Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU’s). We are encouraged by the feedback of the results we have received and look to learn what more we can do and offer to improve our commercialization journey,” stated Kevin A. Richardson, CEO and Chairman of the Board. Mr. Richardson continued, “We share in the enthusiasm around the two events involving Dr. Windy Cole who will speak to and demonstrate SANUWAVE’s dermaPACE technology.”
The APMA conference will highlight SANUWAVE’s innovative presence in the wound care space with the dermaPACE System. This focused Extracorporeal Shockwave Technology (ESWT), based upon electrohydraulic 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. 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 statistical significance in complete 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.
The study has two peer reviewed articles published and featured in the Journal of Wound Care (JWC). If you wish to receive copies of either of these articles, please send your request to Info@sanuwave.com.
