ALPHARETTA, Ga.--SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (OTCBB: SNWV) (www.sanuwave.com), an emerging medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of non-invasive, biological response activating devices in regenerative medicine, today announced that the Company will showcase their newest device, Profile ™, which incorporates innovative Diffused Acoustic Pressure (DAP™) technology, at the 20 TH Biennial Congress of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) beginning during exhibition yesterday, August 15 th, and running through August 18 th, 2010 in San Francisco, CA.
The Company will share early stage therapy benefits from a series of case studies conducted by Dr. Miles Graivier, a renowned aesthetic plastic surgeon in Roswell, GA, that demonstrates the use of Profile ™in post-surgical applications, body shaping and scar management. DAP™ technology utilizes an innovative form of acoustic pressure waves to promote the benefits of massage through tissue stimulation.
Christopher M. Cashman, President and CEO of SANUWAVE, commented, “Early stage investigation has shown Profile™ to be a versatile device that can be used by physicians as a stand-alone or adjunctive therapy in multiple points of care, including the physician’s office, hospital and medi-spa. We are excited to share Profile™ with the medical community attending ISAPS and educate them on how Profile™ can add clinical and economic value to their practice.”
Profile™ is expected to become commercially available in the United States in September 2010 and in the European Union by fourth quarter 2010. In addition, SANUWAVE expects to undertake a variety of clinical studies to further validate Profile’s™ benefits in a number of aesthetic and plastic surgery applications.
The Profile™ device, as well as case studies by Dr. Graivier, will be available for review at the SANUWAVE booth #1220. Company representatives will be available to demonstrate the use of Profile™ and to speak further on the technology and its potential clinical utility.
