Premier Shockwave CEO and President, A. Michael Stolarski, Discusses Science Behind dermaPACE(R) on American Indian Living Radio

Suwanee, GA - (NewMediaWire) - October 11, 2018 - SANUWAVE Health, Inc. (OTCQB: SNWV) and Premier Shockwave, Inc. are pleased to announce that Premier Shockwave, Inc. and the dermaPACE® device were featured on American Indian Living Radio during the September 24, 2018 broadcast hosted by Dr. David DeRose.

Premier Shockwave is the exclusive dermaPACE® distributor to the Indian Health Service (IHS) and Tribally operated healthcare services market for SANUWAVE Health, Inc. Mr. Stolarski was interviewed while at the National Tribal Public Health Summit at the Mystic Lake Casino and Resort in Prior Lake, MN, May 22 - 24, 2018. 

Dr. DeRose began the interview by saying that he had never heard of using shock waves to treat diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) but had looked at some of the scientific photographs and found them to be “pretty impressive stuff.” Stolarski replied that the treatment was “very legitimate” and noted that the device was recently cleared by the FDA on December 28, 2017.  Stolarski continued by detailing the 336-patient double-blinded, randomly-controlled FDA study conducted without physician assisted closure and without the assistance of antimicrobial or antibacterial assistance which achieved statistically significant rates of complete closure by 20 weeks in DFUs treated with dermaPACE® in conjunction with standard of care as compared to wounds treated with only standard of care. The dermaPACE® has the potential to save the tribal healthcare system many thousands of dollars per patient by exhibiting lower incidences of lower limb amputation and wound recurrence. The device is aimed at chronic wounds, or those wounds four weeks and older. Mr. Stolarski called it a “feel good technology” from both a cost and quality of life standpoint.  

Dr. DeRose questioned the mechanism of action and compared it to other ways we “stress the body” to make it stronger.  Mr. Stolarski explained that it basically creates angiogenesis to improve healing.  Both agreed on the analogy of stressing the body, or specifically tissue in this case, to make it stronger and to heal it. 

Dr. DeRose’s show is broadcast throughout the United States. Stolarski indicated that anyone interested in the technology could contact him via the website at www.premiershockwave.comor by emailing him at mikes@premiershockwave.com.  He noted that Premier Shockwave is currently the sole distributor for the Indian Health Service, VAs and Military Treatment Facilities, but that SANUWAVE Health plans to start rolling out dermaPACE® technology to other US Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) shortly.
