Innovative Device Utilizes Revolutionary Electrotherapy to Improve Healing
of Chronic Wounds
ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Kingfisher Americas, a healthcare company focused on improving patient quality of life, today announced that its parent company, Belgium-based Kingfisher Healthcare, has received CE mark for its KFH Novo medical device, a breakthrough medical technology that enhances the healing of chronic wounds. KFH Novo is the latest addition to Kingfisher's line of safe, non-invasive energy therapies designed to treat patients suffering from a range of chronic conditions.
KFH Novo utilizes Kingfisher's revolutionary Bio-Electric Stimulation Therapy (BEST) to assist in and improve upon the healing of chronic wounds including venous leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers and pressure sores. This unique form of electrotherapy enhances the physiological processes of wound healing at a cellular level, increasing protein synthesis levels, stimulating angiogenesis and fibroblasts, and increasing levels of ATP production to restart and regenerate tissue healing.
"Treatments for chronic wounds remain a major clinical challenge as a significant number of patients endure painful, open abrasions for as long as a year," said Dr. Henk Snyman, founder and CEO of Kingfisher Healthcare. "We are thrilled to offer physicians and patients a safe, non-invasive and cost-effective therapy designed to successfully treat several types of chronic wounds."
Designed for home use, KFH Novo is portable, convenient and easy-to-use. Its sleek and modern design elements, including patented touch-screen panel, allows patients to monitor and control their treatments. KFH Novo is expected to enter the U.S. market in 2009.
"We are pleased to announce the addition of KFH Novo to our line of
innovative, alternative therapies," said Herb Whitaker, CEO of Kingfisher
