Peter Blume, assistant clinical professor of orthopaedics and rehabilitation in the Department of Orthopedics, Section of Podiatric Surgery at the Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, USA, considers the launch of the new SonicOne procedure as an important advancement in the technology. “The addition of the new faster ultrasound assisted debridement procedure to the SonicOne OR system will allow me to utilise the already proven advantages in wound care to larger, more complex wound surfaces. This creates an opportunity to treat a larger segment of the patient population, who had not previously been eligible for the benefits of this approach.”
“The benefits of ultrasonic debridement have been well received by the wound community,” said Michael A McManus Jr, president and chief executive officer of Misonix. “Our latest advancement in bringing speed to the SonicOne product line allows users to take advantage of those ultrasonic benefits without compromising procedure times.”
“The SonicOne OR system is an innovative ultrasonic surgical debridement system that allows surgeons to address the challenges chronic wounds present to them, the patient and the health-care system,” suggests a Misonix press release. The company believes that SonicOne OR establishes a new standard in surgical wound bed preparation, an essential first step in the wound healing process.
The new SonicOne procedure will be sold and distributed through the Misonix sales team and the company’s distributor network in the USA.
