President and CEO Commentary:
Thomas Sandgaard, CEO commented: “I am excited to see orders and revenue growing again not only sequentially, but also year-over year. We see growth in both our electrotherapy business and compound pharmacy and we find that insurance reimbursement rates are still strong and stable in both areas. We also expect to receive a response from the FDA regarding our request for the De Novo route as well as collecting additional clinical data during the second quarter for our Blood Volume Monitor.”
