NanoVibronix Announces Positive Results from Independent Product Trial of UroShield for Patients with a Spinal Cord Injury
March 14, 2023
NanoVibronix, Inc., (NASDAQ: NAOV) (the “Company”), a medical device company utilizing the Company’s proprietary and patented low intensity surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology, today announced the positive evaluation results for its UroShield device, presented at a recent medical conference by clinicians from the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (“RNOH”).
The report concluded that the Company’s UroShield device showed a decrease in the number of blockages and infections and an increase in catheter satisfaction in the patients studied. In addition, evaluators concluded that the device has the potential to improve quality of life and reduce healthcare associated costs for patients with spinal cord injuries who experience recurrent blockages or infections and who have complicated catheter issues.
“This report is further affirmation of the benefits and efficacy of our UroShield,” stated Brian Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of NanoVibronix. “Feedback collected from patients that participated in the study affirms that UroShield is straightforward to use, of benefit to patients’ physical and mental health and in at least one case, was instrumental in preventing a hospital stay. UroShield is available to all NHS clinicians and their patients who need the device with full clinical support, through the NHS supply chain. We are encouraged by the increasing support for UroShield and positive outcomes that patients are experiencing.”
Murphy added, “It is estimated that approximately 285,000 people in the United States1 and approximately 50,000 people in the United Kingdom2 are living with a spinal cord injury and new incidents are being added each year. Accordingly, we believe patients suffering with a spinal cord injury represents a clear and specific use case and measurable market opportunity for UroShield.”
The product evaluation was conducted by clinicians – Claire Riley, Sarah Knight, Frank Lee, Hannah Houliston and Rizwan Hamid of the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, UK. The evaluation is being submitted for publication and the full text will be available after publication.
