FREDERICK, MD., May 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BioElectronics Corporation (OTC PINK: BIEL), maker of advanced medical devices announces that B. Braun Ltd, of Sheffield, UK has recently completed development of its same day surgical TOTAL Pathway program for joint replacements which includes BioElectronics medical devices. The program is being launched by B. Braun’s UK Group to improve care and reduce the UK healthcare cost of its 160,000 annual hip and knee replacement procedures.
The “fast-track” same day hip and knee replacements are being supported by hospital physiotherapy teams visiting the patient at home and communicating using a specialized wireless tablet. Each patient will be given an ActiPatch medical device and a prescription for 6 additional ActiPatch devices. A similar program is being implemented for spinal surgeries.
Phil Cleary, Senior Product Group Manager, stated that “our TOTAL Pathway program enhances our commitment to patient safety, post-operative care, as well as significantly reducing healthcare costs and hospital stays.” Treating post-surgical pain requires a multifaceted approach. In trials, ActiPatch was well received and produced positive outcomes. We look forward to making this program a success, in the UK and other countries where B. Braun operates.
