Medical Device Maker Changes Name to Create Brand Platform, Launches New
Website, Readies for Market Entry
PITTSBURGH, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Coventina Healthcare Enterprises, Inc., a leader in therapeutic warming and non-pharmacologic pain management systems, announced today that it has changed its name to ReGear Life Sciences, Inc. ReGear is expanding its line of patented therapeutic warming systems which reduce pain and improve quality of life by adding a suite of products targeted at sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation.
The Company, founded in 2006, offers noninvasive, non-pharmacologic pain management systems based on a patented set of radio frequency (RF) coil assemblies and generators which provide deep therapeutic heat in a safe, unattended manner and overcome the uneven and unpredictable deep-tissue warming and patient movement limitations of competing modalities such as hot packs, ultrasound, and other forms of diathermy. The company's products have been FDA cleared for unattended use and can be used to treat chronic pain, muscle spasms, joint contractures, and pain associated with osteoarthritis, soft tissue and repetitive stress injuries, slow and non-healing wounds, back injuries, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and Reynaud's phenomenon.
"Our products can really make a difference in a person's life," said James (Chip) Hanlon, President and CEO. "The deep therapeutic heating we provide is known to reduce or eliminate pain, enhance recovery and rehabilitation programs, and increase one's ability to get back in the game and live a rich, active life. Changing our name to ReGear gives us a much needed platform to build our identity and brand that we believe will resonate with our target customers in sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation. This sets up our planned product introduction at the National Athletic Trainer Association (NATA) trade show and is the next logical step in our launch strategy and plans to build a great company here in southwestern Pennsylvania."
Based in Pittsburgh, PA, ReGear Life Sciences, Inc. develops and markets innovative deep-tissue therapeutic heating products consisting of comfortable body-part specific garments powered by a portable radio frequency (RF) generator. Therapeutic levels of warming have been proven to relieve pain, decrease joint stiffness, relieve muscle spasms, increase blood flow and range of motion and facilitate a healing response. The patented system has been cleared by the FDA for unattended use. Initial investors in ReGear include Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse and Innovation Works.
