SANUWAVE Health, Inc. recently announce that the company is entering into a Memorandum of Understanding with eKare, Inc. to develop novel wound care analysis and management solutions. Linking SANUWAVE’s dermaPACE® wound treatment device with eKare’s inSight® 3D wound imaging and analytics system, the two companies will strive to produce the industry’s most comprehensive wound management solution.
inSight uses the latest computer vision and 3D sensing technology to quickly and accurately assess the healing progress of wounds and feed that data into its AI (Artificial Intelligence) analytics engine to drive actionable insights. inSight is registered as a 510(k) Class I device and is CE Marked. SANUWAVE has long recognized that wound closure is but the end result of a series of evolving treatment decisions, made more complicated by a diabetic patient population. Leveraging eKare’s AI analytic platform, SANUWAVE will develop proprietary clinical decision support system for the dermaPACE solution to improve the outcome and lower the cost of wound care.
States Kevin Richardson, CEO of SANUWAVE, “Having conducted and analyzed two highly controlled wound studies, we have recognized that successful wound closure is dependent upon recognizing and adapting to multiple factors in a patient’s overall medical situation to effectively close wounds as quickly as possible. With eKare’s inSight, SANUWAVE believes that we have found the perfect platform for clinicians to manage the chess match that is wound closure.” Adds Travis Smith, Chief Commercial Officer of eKare, “We are excited to be teaming with SANUWAVE to elevate inSight’s strength in imaging and analytics to develop better treatment algorithms for the dermaPace solution. This potent combination of therapy, 3D imaging, and data analytics can pave the path to powerful and cost effective wound closure solutions.”
SANUWAVE dermaPACE, CE Marked and licensed in Canada, Australia, and South Korea has a proven record of effectiveness in treating skin conditions, particularly diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers. In the US, SANUWAVE has completed two US based clinical trials enrolling 336 subjects, which have proven the dermaPACE 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. dermaPACE exhibits superiority in wound area reduction within 12 weeks of initial treatment and exhibits superiority in wound closure within 20 weeks of initial treatment. Combined with the imaging and analytical power of inSight, the two companies intend to jump to the forefront in intelligent wound management and healing. SANUWAVE intends to introduce the inSight system into additional clinical trials planned for 2017.
