FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stimwave LLC, a medical device manufacturer and independent research institute headquartered in South Florida, today announced it has been awarded a Distribution and Pricing Agreement (DAPA) by the Defense Logistics Agency. Stimwave, which distributes the Stimwave Freedom Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) System and StimQ Peripheral Nerve Stimulator (PNS) System, received a five-year contract, negotiated by TAMM Net, Inc., which is the first global agreement for spinal cord stimulators by a U.S. government agency.
“We are extremely pleased Stimwave received a DAPA. The successful product validation process now allows Stimwave products to be accessed and used by doctors at all military treatment facilities across the globe,” said Laura Perryman, CEO and president of Stimwave. “Multiple facilities have been pleased to hear they can now acquire our products through their purchasing vehicles.”
Stimwave’s devices use Wireless Pain Relief® technology and are 95 percent smaller than any other neuromodulation device on the market. Stimwave’s wireless device delivers small pulses of energy to specific nerves, triggering a reaction that enables the brain to remap pain pathways, thus providing pain relief. The device is fixed in place by an anchor, so it stays “in line” with the body’s nerves, allowing a freedom of motion that is impossible with bulkier implanted devices.
Stimwave launched its FDA-cleared devices for the relief of chronic back and leg pain to a limited number of patients throughout 2015. In March 2016, Stimwave was granted FDA 510(k) for the relief of peripheral nervous system (PNS) pain, becoming the only neuromodulation device manufacturer cleared by the FDA to help reduce chronic neuropathic pain at most locations throughout the body, from back and leg pain addressed by spinal cord stimulation to PNS treatment for shoulder pain, wrist and elbow pain, knee pain, hip pain and more.
Stimwave Technologies Incorporated is a privately held medical device company engaged in the development, manufacturing, and commercialization of wirelessly powered, microtechnology neurostimulators, providing patients with a convenient, safe, minimally invasive, and highly cost-effective pain management solution that is easily incorporated into their daily lives. Stimwave’s goal is to evolve its patented, cutting-edge platform into the default for neuromodulation, increasing the accessibility for patients worldwide while lowering the economic impact of pain management. www.stimwave.com
