Misonix Inc. announced its recently launched product, SonicVac, has been recognized by Podiatry Today as one of the “Top 10 Innovations in Podiatry for 2016.” Podiatry Today, an award-winning publication devoted to practicing podiatric professionals, lists the SonicVac in their July edition as an innovation that can spur wounds toward healing with the unique combination of ultrasound and aspiration.
SonicVac is the latest addition to the SonicOne platform that combines the advantages of vacuum aspiration with the precision and power of Low Frequency Direct Contact Ultrasound (LFDCU) debridement.
“SonicOne with SonicVac allows the surgeon to selectively debride from the superficial to deep tissue while containing the spread of air-transmitted infectious matter from the surgeon and the O.R. staff,” said Dr. Lee Rogers, Medical Director, Amputation Prevention Centers of America. “The ability that this innovative product can provide safety for the patient and the user while potentially promoting healthy tissue regeneration for chronic wounds post debridement, positions SonicOne as the standard of advanced wound care.”
From data released at the 2016 Spring Diabetic Limb Salvage Conference, this combination has shown that SonicVac increased the removal of potentially infected irrigant and debris from the treatment area by 134 percent over ultrasound alone.
“This recent acknowledgement by Podiatry Today validates the hard work that our team has done to develop solutions that can significantly enhance treatment and improve patient outcomes,” said Scott Ludecker, Misonix Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing.
The SonicOne O.R. System is an ultrasonic surgical debridement system that allows surgeons to address the challenges chronic wounds present to them, the patient and the health-care system. SonicOne O.R. establishes a new standard in surgical wound bed preparation, an essential first step in the wound healing process.
