NanoVibronix Announces Morulaa HealthTech as its Regulatory & Marketing Partner in India
ELMSFORD, NY–(Marketwired – December 20, 2017) – NanoVibronix, Inc, (NASDAQ: NAOV), a medical device company utilizing the Company’s proprietary and patented low intensity surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology, today announced it has signed Morulaa HealthTech as its regulatory and marketing partner in India. Morulaa HealthTech specializes in introducing medical products to the Indian market, with its in-house regulatory team and an established third-party distribution network across India, including both rural and urban markets.
Vilina Jain of Morulaa HealthTech, stated, “We are excited to partner with NanoVibronix to bring the company’s full suite of products to the Indian marketplace. We believe these products will resonate extremely well and fill an enormous unmet medical need. As an example, the effects of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are even more pronounced in India than in many other parts of the world, illustrating the demand for UroShield™, which has been clinically shown to reduce infections and improve outcomes. We believe the value proposition of UroShield™ is apparent in terms of both saving lives and reducing costs to the healthcare system. We also believe that there is a significant market opportunity for both WoundShield™ and PainShield™, especially in rural markets where access to healthcare may be limited.”
Within India, hospital acquired infections (HAIs) are a leading cause of morbidity, and over 40% of all HAIs are believed to be CAUTI related. These infections generally result in increased use of antibiotics, longer stays in hospitals and an overall increase in healthcare costs. UroShield™ is an ultrasound-based product that is designed to prevent bacterial colonization and biofilm on indwelling urinary catheters and increase antibiotic efficacy, ultimately reducing the incidence of CAUTI. UroShield is also intended to decrease pain and discomfort associated with urinary catheter use.
Brian Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of NanoVibronix Inc., commented, “India represents a very substantial market opportunity, with the overall medical device market experiencing explosive growth and forecast to reach $11 billion USD by 2022. We believe Morulaa HealthTech is the ideal partner, with a long track record and extensive network of distributors in place across India.”
