Medovex Corporation Enters Into International Distribution Agreement With EDGE Medical of the UK
Leading Biologics and Orthopedics Distributor of Medical Devices in the UK to Distribute the DenerveX(TM) System
ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/15 -- Medovex Corp. (NASDAQ: MDVX), a developer of medical technology products, today announced that the Company has entered into an international distribution agreement with England based EDGE Medical for the distribution of its DenerveX™ System throughout the UK.
Patrick Kullmann, Medovex President and COO, stated, "EDGE Medical in the UK is a perfect fit for our mission in providing a successful foundation for our entry of the DenerveX System in this important part of Europe. EDGE Medical distributes spine, biologics and trauma solutions in the orthopedics space. The signing of this agreement on the heels of last week's agreement for our European distribution center with TCB in Berlin further expands our sales and distribution capacity."
EDGE Medical is expected to provide sales, marketing and distribution services for the various country hospitals throughout the UK for the launch of the DenerveX System.
The Company's patented DenerveX™ System is intended to treat Facet Joint Syndrome (FJS), a condition in which the joints in the back of the spine degenerate and subsequently cause pain. Lower back pain is the second most common cause of disability in the U.S. for adults. Studies indicate that 10% of the U.S. adult population suffers from lower back pain and that 31% of lower back pain is attributed to FJS pain.
The DenerveX System consists of the DenerveX device, a single use medical device and the DenerveX Pro-40 Power generator, both designed to be less invasive with faster recovery time than current surgical treatment options. It consists of two procedures combined into one device and is expected to provide for a longer lasting treatment solution while offering potential savings to the health care system.
Medovex was formed to acquire and develop a diversified portfolio of potentially ground breaking medical technology products. Criteria for selection include those products with potential for significant improvement in the quality of patient care combined with cost effectiveness. The Company's first pipeline product, the DenerveX device, is intended to provide long lasting relief from pain associated with facet joint syndrome at significantly less cost than currently available options.
