SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IOMED, Inc. , a leader in the development of active drug delivery systems using iontophoresis, introduced the new Hybresis(TM) System, a first-of-its-kind integrated mini-controller and patch system that uses no lead wires and can deliver in-clinic treatment in as little as three minutes. The product is being showcased to attendees of the American Physical Therapy Association's Combined Section Meeting starting today in Boston.
The Hybresis System consists of a wireless, miniaturized, rechargeable controller that connects directly to an iontophoresis patch and a charging station with four controller bays. The product combines leading-edge design and function with the efficacy, safety and quality that embody IOMED products. Robert J. Lollini, IOMED's President and CEO, said, "The Hybresis System is a quantum leap in iontophoresis technology. For the first time, clinicians have access to a wireless system that offers precise dose control, alternative treatment modes, is easy to set up, and can significantly increase patient throughput due to shortened in-clinic treatment times. Patients who use iontophoresis now have access to a discreet, comfortable system that does not require long wear times."
Mr. Lollini said the Hybresis System could also lend itself to applications in new markets outside of physical and occupational therapy and sports medicine markets, which have long used iontophoresis delivery systems.
IOMED, currently awaiting 510(k) clearance for the Hybresis System from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, expects to ship the new product within the next several months pending regulatory approval.
