FARMINGDALE, N.Y., May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Misonix, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSON), a medical device company that designs, manufactures, and markets innovative, therapeutic, ultrasonic products worldwide for wound debridement, cosmetic surgery, neurosurgery, laparoscopic surgery, and other surgical and medical applications has announced their attendance at the American Physical Therapy Association's (APTA) Combined Sections Meeting (CSM), which was held in New Orleans, LA, February 10-12, 2011. Misonix exhibited and presented its SonicOne® Ultrasonic Wound Cleansing and Debridement System to many of the more than 5,000 clinicians in attendance. In addition, the SonicOne was demonstrated during the Wound Debridement Skills Pre-Conference Course on February 9, 2011.
As part of the educational program a clinical poster was presented on February 12, 2011 that focused on the clinical effectiveness of the SonicOne when used to treat chronic wounds. Frank Aviles, PT, CWS, WCC, FAACWS, Director of Therapy for a leading long term acute care facility in Natchitoches, LA, was the author and presenter of the material. Three separate clinical cases were followed from patient admission to wound closure. In two of the cases, the initial clinical plan included amputation. However, using a SonicOne debridement protocol to remove non-viable tissue allowed the establishment of a well-granulated wound bed, which contributed to healing, and resulted in both patients retaining their limbs and functional mobility.
The SonicOne is an innovative ultrasonic wound care system that offers tissue specific debridement and cleansing for effective removal of devitalized tissue and fibrin deposits while sparing viable cellular structures. The SonicOne establishes a new standard in advanced wound care and ensures progress towards patient healing.
