Cambridge, CAMBS (PRWEB UK) 4 November 2013
PneumaCare (Cambridge, UK) is pleased to announce the appointment of Sensormedics Italia as their master distributor in Europe for their breakthrough Structured Light Plethysmography (SLP) technology.
With their 29 years of medical device experience in the cardiopulmonary sector and a well-established network of business and clinical contacts, PneumaCare expects a rapid introduction of its PneumaScan™ and Thora3DI™ product into key hospitals across Europe.
Eric Stewart, PneumaCare's Commercial Director, stated that “Sensormedics has an unrivalled connection with the respiratory market in Europe and an amazing passion to deliver on results. With PneumaCare's commencement of clinical studies in multiple countries, the timing for a partner like Sensormedics to come on board is perfect.”
Sensormedics will coordinate all distribution and sales activities through their network of distributors in the countries below and manage the Italian market directly through their Italian distribution operations.
"It is a very exciting moment for our company history but even more for the whole global medical device market," stated Roby Perissin, General Manager of Sensormedics Italia.
“We have evaluated the PneumaCare product for many months prior to this agreement with PneumaCare and found an extremely high level of interest for this innovative, non-invasive method of clinical evaluation. The Thora3DI™ product enables clinicians to evaluate patient respiratory status and breathing pattern and response to treatment. The PneumaCare systems are highly enabling for many specialists, from the pediatrician to the pulmonary physician involved in, ventilated patients, into several areas of rehabilitation, pre and post surgery assessment and other areas. This will be a product that will quickly gain importance not only into the research areas but even more into the real clinical world because it is seen as something very useful, if not essential, to address these patients' assessment needs".
PneumaCare will continue to work directly with Sensormedics and their partners to support the company’s products in the field and clinical activities in the market.
