NYON, Switzerland & POTSDAM, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elanix Biotechnologies AG (FRA: ELN), a developer of tissue regeneration products and specialty cosmetics in dermatology and gynecology, announced today the launch of an adherence app for its topical women’s health product, GYNrepair® cream. Specifically designed for use on the intimate external mucosa, GYNrepair® cream soothes the feeling of discomfort, twinges and dryness. GYNrepair® cream contains a proprietary Cell Free Protein Complex (CFPC®), including various proteins, such as collagen and fibronectin, and is perfume-free. It was recently launched in the European Union and can be ordered through Elanix’s subsidiary, Repair-A, at www.repair-a.com.
The app* allows women to easily monitor their external intimate zone discomfort, by logging and tracking daily feeling of, among others, discomfort, twinges and dryness, which also assists in discussions with their doctor. Alerts can be set so that each day users are reminded to apply the cream and to identify on a 1-10 scale, the level of their intimate discomfort. These alerts can help women to benefit continuously from the soothing properties of GYNrepair® cream and build application times into their daily schedules. As each application has a recommended volume, the app automatically estimates when a refill is needed and offers one click to the website where it can be re-ordered. The app is available in English, French and German and can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play Store.
“Smartphone apps are revolutionizing delivery of healthcare, particularly in the field of adherence. Our user-friendly app will help women schedule recommended application of GYNrepair® cream into their busy lives. Elanix will continue to explore how additional features on the app can provide benefits to our customers,” stated Tomas Svoboda, CEO of Elanix Biotechnologies. “We have developed the app to support commercialization expansion for GYNrepair® cream and provide an easy to use, direct interface to our customers. This interaction with our customers, we believe, will help drive commercial success for the product.”
