SUWANEE, GA, Sept. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (SNWV) and Premier Shockwave, Inc. are pleased to announce that Premier Shockwave, Inc. will exhibit the dermaPACE® device at the 35th Annual National Tribal Health Conference at the Oklahoma City Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, OK, September 17 - 20, 2018. Premier Shockwave has been selected by SANUWAVE Health, Inc. as its exclusive dermaPACE® distributor to the Indian Health Service (IHS) and Tribally operated healthcare services market.
The National Tribal Health Conference is the largest American Indian and Alaska Native specific gathering focused on health every year. Premier Shockwave is pleased to be able to introduce this advanced new wound care product, the dermaPACE®, to this group. Premier Shockwave hopes to partner with the Indian Health Service community to bring value-based technology to the difficult to heal Diabetic Foot Ulcer (DFU) population, prominent in the Tribally operated healthcare services market.
According to Premier Shockwave CEO, A. Michael Stolarski, “Not only is the cost-per-day to operate the dermaPACE® about 40% lower than other standard wound treatment therapies, including negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), but the convenience for the patient, physician and clinical staff make a compelling argument for augmenting current protocol to include the dermaPACE® system.” Mr. Stolarski added, “What we do better than anyone else in this space is create vascularity. No other product on the market is better at creating the biological response in the body that promotes angiogenesis, or the development of new blood vessels, than the dermaPACE®.” 1
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.
