PTs Report Wireless Hybrid Iontophoresis System Delivers Precise Dose Control, Reduces Patient Discomfort and Shortens In-Clinic Treatment Times
ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- For years, physical therapists have relied on iontophoresis as a safe, reliable and effective drug delivery method. At the same time, most PTs have suffered the drawbacks of traditional dose controllers, lead wires and patch-only iontophoresis systems. This traditional system also includes extensive wear times, patient patch sensitivity and imprecise dosage delivery, which can all lead to unpredictable results. The industry's first wireless hybrid iontophoresis system, Hybresis, is a convenient, needle-free drug delivery system that allows clinicians to treat more patients while improving overall care by reducing patient discomfort and inconvenience.
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), more than 50 million Americans annually suffer from chronic pain. Traditional pain management treatments include needle injections of anti-inflammatory drugs, narcotics, time-consuming in-clinic treatments or surgery -- all of which often result in unnecessary pain, side effects, anxiety or inconvenience for patients. Hybresis significantly reduces the total in-clinic time, enabling PTs to help move more patients through the clinic faster. Ultimately, PTs can spend more time on providing care.
PTs, including Rick Mewes, OCS, who works in a sports medicine clinic
in Minneapolis, have reported that the Hybresis system offers the power of
the traditional dose controllers and lead wires, with the flexibility of a
patch. "With Hybresis, my patients can be treated effectively in less than
half the time it takes for traditional iontophoresis," said Mewes. "My
patients have also responded favorably -- opting for the convenience that
Hybresis offers over other methods. The greatest benefit I've seen from
using Hybresis is that I can now spend more time providing ther
